Bandits Volleyball Club of Texas Team Photos

Ivey Photography is the official photographer for The Bandits Volleyball Club of Texas.  The Bandits are made up of girls ages 11-18.  Club volleyball is very competitive and The Bandits are one of the top programs in the Dallas Fort Worth area.

Volleyball players from all over the world make up their roster.  Not only are players from North Texas trying out, but they also have players from Russia and Serbia.  If you’d like more information on how you can join The Bandits, take a look at their site.  USA Volleyball is the governing body for The Bandit’s League.  They play in the North Texas Region of USAV.

Team sports photography is one of Ivey Photography’s specialties.  We have the systems, the photographers, the graphic artists, and the administrative support needed to handle leagues large and small.  For most leagues, or in this case, an entire club, we prefer a controlled environment and a single photo day where we capture all of the players and teams in one sitting.  In the case of The Bandits Volleyball Club, we had two 2-hour blocks available during their practice time.  We usually need 15 minutes per team of 10-20 players.  The club admins scheduled each team 10 minutes apart and we overlapped slightly between each.  We use a QR Code tracking software to keep track of each player’s name, team name, and player number.  When we get back to the studio with the images, we let the computer identify each player’s images.  From there, we use green screen extraction to remove the background and place each player on a custom background.  We use special images made for the “team photo” and build a composite image for each team.

Ford’s 1st Birthday Party

Ford turned ONE!  His birthday party was a small celebration at home.  Family and friends gathered over a light lunch, cake and punch.  Rather than chase her cell phone around the entire party, Ford’s mom decided to hire us to capture the event for her.  We took a few minutes to make some portraits of the birthday boy, followed by some quick family portraits.

As you can imagine, one-year-olds are unpredictable, so when I arrived little ford was fast asleep.  Luckily, when he woke up to a house full of people, he was all smiles.  The home is spectacular, with huge windows in the front and back.  Of course, I love that because window light is the only light I ever need.  We played a bit with Ford getting a few individual portraits and then his brother and sister joined us.  We grabbed a quick family group while we had the chance.

I always like to capture the details and the decorations of the party.  One day they can look back at their home and the decorations and it will always remind them of his first birthday party.  Once I had the detail photos, I started just capturing the interactions with family and friends celebrating Ford.  I tried to remain invisible with the camera and let people enjoy the party without “having their picture made”.

Ford smashed his birthday cake and got an assist from his big brother on the candle.  We made a few family photos of the extended families who were able to make it into Dallas for the party.

If you are looking for event coverage, please contact us.  We offer hourly rates and you receive a set of high-resolution digital files.

DeSoto Girls’ Basketball Team Photos and Banners

The nationally-ranked DeSoto Eagles girls’ basketball team is one of our new clients.  We photographed them for their team and individual photos.  We created custom stadium banners for them to show off their school pride.  The photos were taken at the DeSoto High School campus in the gym.  They have an awesome basketball floor and it made a perfect backdrop for their individual portraits.

Gym lighting is not ideal for portraits, so we used a combination of 2 off-camera flash units to add the lighting style.  Our main portrait light produces beautiful skin tones and detail in the uniforms.  The accent light provides a separation from the dark background areas.  Our technique of lighting, combined with a long lens, produces the 3D look.

We produced a unique banner for each player.  Starting with a photo on a green screen, we extract the photos to add to our digital art.  We worked with Coach Robinson on the look she thought best represented her team.

Congratulations to DeSoto on all of their success this season.  Good luck in the State playoffs.

Natalie + Edward – Midlothian Wedding at First Presbyterian

Natalie and Edward were married at The First Presbyterian Church on Main Street in Midlothian.  When you think of the most beautiful wedding you can imagine, you may not consider a small-town church with a cake and punch reception.  However, Natalie and Edward’s wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever photographed.

Midlothian First Presbyterian Church

“In 1911, two congregations merged to form Midlothian Presbyterian Church.  One originally organized in 1883 under Pastor D.G. Malloy and was part of the Presbyterian Church of the United States of America (PCUSA).  The other organized in 1890 under the Presbyterian Church of the United States (PCUS). Members of the newly merged church built a sanctuary from 1913-14.  The congregation has a history of supporting the community, including helping with Manna House, a cooperative venture among Midlothian churches aiding needy local families.  Members have also focused on missions on a national and global scale.  Today the church continues to be a beacon of light for the residents of Midlothian.” – Official Historical Marker of the Texas Historical Commission placed in 2010.

A Beautiful Bridal Suite

The historical marker outside the church says “a beacon of light”.  Natalie and Edward are exactly that for each other.  Although I’d only met Natalie for a brief moment a few days before the wedding, she was warm and inviting on the morning of the wedding.  She was busy prepping her hair and makeup and when I arrived was just getting into her dress.  The bridal suite at the church is perfect in every way for photography.  The windows are frosted antique glass.  Light is pouring in from the outside creating the most beautiful quality for portraits.  I immediately went to my gear back and began capturing what I saw without providing many directions.  Natalie put on her dress as her mom and daughter finished the last of the details.  I immediately saw the shots I wanted and went to work.  The room is small but put together perfectly.  I wanted to capture the detail of the day, but still, show all that was happening.  I went to black and white mode on my Fuji XH1 with a wide zoom lens.  I love the detail and texture of this image.  Natalie’s mom is laughing while she’s being assisted with the last of her buttons on her gown.  I purposely shot “against the light” using the backlight to highlight their faces and the textures of the room.  I framed this so the painting on the wall and all of the crosses were in view.

Midlothian Wedding First Presbyterian Church

Midlothian Wedding First Presbyterian Church Bridal Suite

While Natalie continued to prepare for her wedding, I captured as I liked, and felt that she trusted my choices.  A few people came in and out of her suite, most importantly her father.  I captured portraits of her and her guests as they arrived to greet her before she walked down the aisle.  We also made a quick bridal portrait for Natalie to hang in her home.

The Handsome Groom

Edward was one of the most well-dressed grooms I’ve photographed.  His suit was perfectly tailored.  He took the time to have his shoes embossed with the wedding date.  And he still made time for prayer with his pastor and hook up the audio for the wedding music.  When you have a small-town wedding, there is a certain amount of expected DIY.  Edward was the groom, the usher, and the AV guy.  Our overall coverage time for the wedding was only 2 hours, so I didn’t have a lot of time to photograph Edward getting ready.  I did get time to make a really cool portrait of him, and a few photos of him and his brother.  Neither brother was short on style.

The Wedding Ceremony

Natalie and Edward’s ceremony took place in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian.  They were surrounded by a few friends and family who came to celebrate with them.  TO say they were surrounded is to be taken literally.  The pews at the church are actually curved around the altar!  The craftsmanship to create the pews is truly mesmerizing.  They are works of art.  When I first saw the curved pews, I immediately thought to get a wide-angle panoramic photo of the space.  The original wood floors creaked as I walked around the back of the sanctuary.  I was careful to place myself in the exact center of the room.  I wanted to show the symmetry of the space.  I enjoy symmetry in my images.  With a wedding, there is a certain amount of natural symmetry required.  And when the wedding venue shares that with the couple, I love to show that in the image.

Wedding Portraits

Following their very emotional ceremony, Natalie and Edward had a few minutes left of our coverage.  We gathered their friends and family outside for a few photos.  The weather was cool, but the fall leaves were still hanging in the trees.  The afternoon light was soft.  We found an area outside with the sun behind the couple and a long stretch of trees behind.  The scene offered us a clean background and space to work with the group photos.

We were able to make images of both sides of the families and then create a few unique images for Natalie and Edward.  They were inspired by an image they had seen me do at another wedding with an umbrella, so they brought that along as a special request.  For the portraits of them alone, I laid down on the ground to isolate them on to a more simple background.  I took advantage of the colors of the tree leaves as a backdrop.

If you’re looking for a wedding photographer for your small wedding, please contact us.  We have coverage options available as short as 2 hours.

Scottish Wedding at The Springs Denton Lodge

The Springs Event Venue Denton at The Lodge

We were honored to photograph and video Rachel and Graeme’s wedding at The Lodge venue at The Springs Event Center near Denton, TX.  Their fall wedding featured a Scottish flair.  The groom is from Scotland and wore a kilt.  We recently featured a post about wedding Kilts on our blog.  Rachel is the third of three sisters to be married and we’ve been the wedding photographer for all three of the weddings.

Picture Perfect Bride

Rachel wore an amazing gown from Stardust Celebrations in Plano, TX.  Her wedding dress is a beautiful ivory color with champagne accents.  It has a long flowing train and featured a beautiful floor-length veil.  We did not have time before the wedding to create a bridal portrait on a separate day.  We generally include a bridal session at no charge with your wedding coverage, but Rachel’s schedule was too busy to get it in.  We took time on her wedding day to create a few different bridal portraits.  Her parents have 30×40 inch metal prints of her sisters hanging in their home, and Rachel was not to be outdone by her younger sisters.

We began our day with coverage of Rachel and her bridesmaids preparing for the day in the large bridal suite at The Lodge.  Although we generally prefer a room with large windows for lighting, we used our Light and Motion Stella series LED constant lights to create the perfect color lighting.  Most rooms have tungsten or daylight LED lighting and the color of those lights is not as accurate as the professional lighting we use for wedding photography and videography.

Rachel looked stunning in her gown.  The Springs Event Center’s Lodge location offers a perfect mix of indoor and outdoor portrait opportunities.  During the pre-ceremony coverage, we prefer to use any available lighting we can.  Our favorite type of lighting is window lighting.  Windows have provided the lighting for portraits for centuries upon centuries, and some of the most famous art in the world was created with a subject being illuminated by a single window.  The most famous artist to use this type of lighting is probably Rembrandt.  Although we don’t always use the exact definition of “Rembrandt Lighting”, we do often seek the same types of light sources he would have used to create his signature look.

The Springs Event Center Lodge Denton Scottish Kilt Wedding Photography

In case you aren’t familiar with Rembrandt Lighting, Rembrandt lighting is a lighting technique that is used in studio portrait photography. It can be achieved using one light and a reflector, or two lights, and is popular because it is capable of producing images that appear both natural and compelling with a minimum of equipment.

During our Bride’s coverage, we like to not only capture the beauty of the bride but also create so many of the most important family portraits you’ll ever take.  Whenever possible, we capture the bride with her mother and father, and then portraits of each of them with her.  If there are any siblings at the wedding, we’ll often capture the entire immediate family with the bride alone, and then the bride with each of her siblings.  We often hear from brides that these images are the first they have made in a ‘formal portrait’ with their family in a number of years.  As they get older, these images with their parents and siblings become so much more valuable.  We also create the same images when possible for the groom.  In Rachel’s case, she has her mom and dad at the wedding, and her 2 younger sisters are in the bridal party.  We photographed them together as a family, and then with each of Rachel’s brothers-in-law.

The Scottish Groom and His Kilt

Every proper Scottish groom must wear a classic Kilt to his wedding.  As we’ve documented, Graeme is from Scotland.  He and Rachel met there some years ago while she studied abroad.  From our previous post, we’ve learned there is more to a Kilt than meets the eye.

Scottish kilts originate back to the 16th century. They were traditionally worn as full-length garments by Gaelic-speaking male Highlanders of northern Scotland. They were referred to as a léine, Gaelic for “shirt”.  The garments were draped over the shoulder or pulled over the head as cloaks.

Thanks to kiltrentals.com for the information about wearing a Kilt at a wedding.

The Wedding Kilt: The Tuxedo of Kilt Outfits

Graeme decided for The Prince Charlie variety of formal wedding Kilt wear.  The Prince Charlie jacket is characterized by a set of three buttons on either side of the jacket and hangs low at the back, almost like a tailcoat. The traditional choice of color is black. Other shades may sometimes be worn as well.

His set up also included the traditional matching 3 button vest.  His vest was the same color as his jacket.  Typical of most wedding Kilt suits for formal occasions, he included a plain wing collar white shirt. To finish off the look, he went with a long tie to match his Tartan.

 

Outdoor Ceremony at The Springs Denton Lodge

The Springs Event Center Lodge Denton Scottish Kilt Wedding Photography

The outdoor ceremony space at The Springs Event Venue in Denton is a spectacular space outside The Lodge.  It is tucked away under large oak trees.  Rachel and Graeme exchanged their vows under the large covered pergola.  The walk to the ceremony site takes the guests and the wedding party over a beautiful stone bridge.  We just love the images set against the background of the fall colors and The Lodge.  There are some images that you would swear were taken in Colorado and not Denton, Texas.  The Lodge’s outdoor ceremony space is set with the west setting sun behind the couple.  The lighting at sunset was perfect for the images in almost every direction.  We had just enough light after the ceremony to make all of the formal family photos and the couple’s portraits outdoors.  IT was a cold windy day, so we worked quickly and finished all of the portraits in about 20 minutes.

The Lodge Wedding Reception Space

The reception space at The Springs Denton Lodge is one of my favorite wedding spaces in all of Dallas-Fort Worth.  The large exposed beams are rustic and beautiful.  The focal point is a floor to ceiling stone fireplace set against a wall of glass.  The view overlooks the wooded area outside.  The view is truly one you would see in a mountain lodge.  Rachel and Graeme’s reception featured a seated dinner served buffet style.  Rachel and Graeme opened the reception with a beautifully choreographed dance.  After dinner, there was a ceremonial bouquet toss.  The evening ended with a vintage car getaway through a runway of sparklers!

NEW Express Family Session – Affordable and Fast

NEW for 2020 The Express Family Portrait Session!

Let’s face it, taking new family pictures can be somewhat difficult.  We are excited to introduce The Express Family Portrait Session.  Normally, we work very quickly with families.  But now, we’ve created a very fast, very affordable family portrait option at Ivey Photography.

The Express Family Portrait takes place during your 45-minute appointment.  There are no hidden costs, no pressuring sales appointments, no obligation to purchase additional images, and no hostage holding picture packages. This is truly a “what you see is what you get” family picture appointment.  We’ve made it easier than ever to gather your family for a few pictures.  Depending on your family and the combinations of photos you want, we may need all 45 minutes, or we may only need 15 minutes.

Taking Family Pictures is Easy

  1.  Choose your time.  We are available Tuesday through Friday afternoons from 2-6 pm, and on one Saturday per month between 9 am and Noon.  See our online bookings for availability.
  2. Choose a location.  Your family pictures can be created in a variety of settings to meet your style.  The first option is in our studio.  We have several backdrop styles from classic to modern to rustic.  We offer several pre-determined outdoor locations that are located within walking distance of our studio.  Choose from a park setting, a nature walk area, the downtown streets or a grungy back alleyway.  Each offers a different set of color and texture options, and all make great family portrait backdrops.
  3. Choose your product mix.  Our base session includes your session time, 3 8×10 prints and a set of 5 digital files for sharing on social media.  For a small additional fee, we upgrade your digital files to printable quality and include a print release.

How Much is The Express Family Portrait Session?  $299

Yep.  $299. you get portraits by an award-winning studio, using professional lighting and posing and the most advanced equipment money can buy.  We are located in Downtown Midlothian and the session happens rain or shine.  Our studio space is fantastic. Even if we have bad weather, you’ll get a professional portrait when you planned for the price you expect.

How Many Poses Do You Get?

The idea of the Express Family Session is to give you the same results you expect from one of our full family sessions.  Generally, the number of poses you’ll receive in your preview gallery will be related to the number of people you bring to the Express session.  The session is slotted for only 45 minutes, so large extended family groups may find a few less possible combinations, but we do aim to give you all of the same pose options as in our custom sessions.  The main difference is that we are limited select appointment times, and to locations near our studio in Midlothian.  Some families may elect to stay indoors and take advantage of our studio space.  If you are looking for a portrait at your home or in a location other than downtown, you’ll want to book us for a traditional portrait session.

Who Can Attend the Express Session?

“Family pictures” is a bit of a loose term.  We’re happy to photograph your family in any configuration you’d like.  If you want parents and children included, we’ll likely make a traditional image of all of you.  Then we will break up into smaller groups and photograph the children together and by themselves.  We’ll also photograph parents together or with any significant other.  Let’s face it, the modern family picture isn’t what it used to be.  “It takes a village”, as they say, and we’d love to photograph yours, in whatever combination it arrives in.

What Happens Next?

After you Express Family Portrait session, we’ll choose  8-15 favorite images from the session.  We’ll send you an online gallery to view your images.  From there, you choose the images you like to match our base package of 3 prints and 5 digital files.  If you’d like to order additional family pictures, you can do so online for up to 90 days.  Your order will be ready to pick up in 3-5 days.  Your digital files will be delivered by email.

Express Family Pictures

These images of Becky and her family are typical of the type of images you can expect during your Express Family session.  We used 2 different locations located within walking distance of our Main Street studio.  We captured a family grouping with their dogs, captured portraits of each of the boys, and made a really sweet group shot of the boys together.

Wedding Videography Lisa and James The Orchard Azle, TX

We were honored to create the wedding videography for Lisa and James when they were married at The Orchard in Azle, TX.  Their wedding video is a highlight edit of their complete video coverage.  We photographed their wedding, as well and we’ve highlighted the photography in a separate post from the videography.

Although we are newly entering the video market, we are visual storytellers at heart.  In our wedding videos, we work to produce the same quality as we do with our photos.  Since we work as a team for both types of coverage, we are careful to stay out of the way of each other.  We work together to set up any shots the videographer needs while the photographer is working.

Videography is a totally separate art form from photography.  We are continually perfecting our technique and editing style.  We prefer a mixed-timeline edit style.  We like to highlight the most important moments of your wedding day with a video that you can enjoy again and again.
