A Cold Night In Dallas / by Londen Wheeler

So I ordered some fairy lights from Amazon Prime last Wednesday, hoping that they would get here this past Friday.   Well, I guess because it's the season of giving, Amazon thought it was a great idea to hold my lights in one of their facilities 40 minutes from my house for two days until deciding to deliver it a few hours before this shoot.  Way to cut it close there, amazon!  

I tell ya what, the wait was definitely worth it because Natalie and I got some amazing shots in Dallas.  The temperature was in the low 30s, both of us had two pairs of pants on, I had three jackets on and gloves and still froze from just an hour of walking around.  I know, I know, "Londen low 30s isn't actually that bad."  But if anybody knows me, 96 degrees in the shade is cold for me.

Natalie and I met up in the Klyde Warren Park, started shooting a few shots there and worked our way over to the AT&T Performing Arts Center.  Being new to the city, it was great to just walk around and see what was around but there's still a lot of city to see.  However, seeing the rest of the city will have to wait until it's warmer!  I definitely can't wait until l can have a full day to just go and explore the city and find more interesting places to do some shoots.

One of my all-time favorite photographers, named Brandon Woelfel inspired me to go buy these fairy lights and do a shoot like this.  I'm trying to step out of my shell and try some different things with my photography.  So I hope you guys are excited to see more of this and some other projects that are coming in the future.
