Rockwall Harbor by Londen Wheeler

I'm sure you guys remember Alex from my Valentines Day post.  Well, she made a surprise appearance back on the blog.  We got to work together last week after not doing anything since February.  This time it was an awesome, summer themed shoot at Rockwall Harbor.  It was my first time at the harbor since before I graduated college in 2016.  Dallas has all of these awesome places to visit and do photoshoots and I never take advantage of it!

Anyway, working with Alex is always a pleasure because everything about her is genuine and she is truly an amazing person.  And yes, the entire fam bam was there for the occasion!  My homie Fredy was there and Anthony came along for the ride and gave us a few awesome photos as well!  We couldn't end the evening without grabbing a bite to eat at the local Chili's!  There's literally nothing better than these friendships that I've made through the power of photography.  If it wasn't for photography, I wouldn't have met all of the people that I have met here.

What do you guys think of this shoot?  It's definitely one of my favorites of the year so far!  Definitely can't wait until we do another shoot.

Fitness by Londen Wheeler

It's that time of year again, guys!  Kelsey is back to help me create more fire!  Literally fire because we were supposed to shoot earlier that day but it was literally 100 degrees, so there's that.  Anyway, whenever she comes home, we just go ham with the photo sessions.  The ideas that we come up with all the way down to the execution makes us such an unstoppable team.  I can't wait till we schedule our next shoot.  I promise that it'll be even better than this one!  Also, if anyone knows how to get us a Nike sponsorship, let us know! *winky emoji*

This was kind of my first little fitness shoot that didn't involve athletes during competition.  What do you guys think about it?  I want to do more shoots like this with athletes of other sports.  Be on the lookout!  I'm going to be working with everyone I can to keep things interesting on the blog!


Orlando by Londen Wheeler

I must say, I have been out of the state and traveling a ton the past 9 months.  I'm impressed and very happy with how often I've been on the move.  This time the family and I took a trip to Orlando for a mini vacation.  We didn't take a plane to get to our destination, but we took a drive from Texas through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and then into Florida.  I would've loved to stop in all the states longer than to just get gas.  All of the places that we drove through seemed to be some pretty cool places to take photos.

Anyway, we were in Orlando for a Mother's Day get-a-way.  No, we didn't go to Disney this time but had a good time exploring Downtown Orlando, driving out to Cocoa Beach, walking around the resort.  Shoot, I even went to a local barbershop and got my beard trimmed up.  I felt like a local and not a tourist this time around and I certainly love having that local experience while traveling to different cities.  Not only did we get to celebrate Mother's Day, but we got to celebrate Nana's birthday, and Aunt Rita's send off to Afghanistan.

I'm ready to go to another city soon.  I really want to go to Austin because why not?  It's only 4 hours away, but working Saturdays sucks because I can never just take a weekend trip anywhere without having to take time off.  *yawn*  Adulting at its finest.

Honestly, I think my next trip will just be to travel around Dallas a bit more.  I still haven't gone to the Cowboys stadium to do a tour of their facility.  Can you believe that?!  I've been to Deep Ellum a few times, but hasn't experience the nightlife there at all.  I'm really missing out on things to do and experience in my own backyard!  So I guess I'll do that first!

Aaron by Londen Wheeler

Well, another quick post before April ends!  A spontaneous trip to North Dallas yesterday resulted in some pretty awesome photographs.  My boy Fredy hit me up yesterday afternoon and asked if I wanted to join him for a quick shoot in North Dallas.  I jumped at the invitation to join him!  Having Aaron as a model made things pretty easy and super interesting.  Fredy always tends to find the hidden nooks and crannies of Dallas and we always manage to create some interesting images.

In the process of switching bags, I left my trusty-dusty 50mm in my other camera bag so I was forced to shoot with my 24mm the entire time.  Although, I must say that I'm pretty satisfied with how everything turned out!

I hope everyone enjoyed this month!  I know some areas of the country had some pretty crazy weather at the beginning of the month.  It's been pretty chill in Texas!  This week we were in the 80s with a nice, cool breeze.  The weather has been tolerable so far.  Ask me about the weather this time next month and you'll get a totally different response!
