Kyrsten Ashlay Photography has expanded  to DFW Texas!!!

When I first started KAP, one of my goals was to travel frequently. Since then, I have decided to expand my brand to Texas, with a concentration in the Dallas and Fort Worth wedding market. Yet, I am pretty darn lucky and will also be able to serve Austin, Texas due to my wonderful sister-in-law’s support.

I’ve already booked my first Dallas Wedding this year for a beautiful couple this October plus TWO engagement sessions in May. I couldn’t be more blessed. I am just over the moon with joy!!

So, as I prepare for this growth and expansion for Kyrsten Ashlay Photography in Texas, I’ve been doing my research and I found the top 5 venues that I want to photograph a wedding at in the Dallas / Fort Worth area!!! These all are so different, but really make my photography heart swooooooon!!!! I cannot wait to see what this expansion has in store and all the dreamy love stories we’re going to be able to capture!!!!!!!

The Emerson

Holy cow is this place absolutely stunning. It is straight out of Pinterest. The Emerson is an absolute gem. The chapel and event space is the perfect backdrop for an intimate, high end Dallas wedding. It’s clean architecture and open space allows couples to put their personal stamp on the space. Can we talk about the natural light, also? The light pours into the space and is so dreamy. I cannot wait to tour the Emerson.  The Emerson screams elegance, charm, and tranquility. What a dreamy one-of-a-kind Dallas wedding venue!!!!

Flying V Ranch

Okay okay OKKKKKKAY!!!! The Flying V Ranch is a photographers dream!!! I cannot say enough good things about this Dallas wedding venue. C’mon, that tree is the perfect backdrop for an outdoor ceremony. The property reminds me of one of my favorite Temecula wedding venues. Can you guess which one?! Ya’ll know your girl loves wide open landscapes. Plus, the indoor space has bright white walls allowing couples to put their personalities into the space. The whole venue feels welcoming and warm.

The Filter Building

What is better than saying “I do” out looking White Rock Lake then dancing the night away inside with exposed red brick from the 1920s, beautiful stained concrete floors, and original iron trusses? The Filter Building has industrial chic written all over it! Your girl has a thang for exposed brick and the Filter Building does not disappoint. It is a perfect space for a high end wedding with a unique backdrop.

Art Space 111

Oh hell yeah!!! Art Space 111 events is perfect for an intimate wedding looking for a relaxed atmosphere and unique setting. Art Space 111 is one of the most unique Dallas wedding venues I have come across. The exposed crumbly brick, quaint garden, and art gallery makes my heart pitter patter. This is not for the average Dallas bride. Art Space 111 events is for the Dallas bride who wants to make a statement. The bistro lights are what initially caught my attention. It screams romance, unique, and intimate!


Dallas wedding venue Willow Creek

Willow Creek

How could I not include Willow Creek as a top Dallas wedding venue? Willow Creek is a natural light photographer’s dream with open fields, towering trees, a gorgeous bridge aisle, large indoor windows, and light colored walls. It is absolutely stunning. This timeless Dallas wedding venue screams romance. My favorite part about Willow Creek is the lush 12 acres with the most yummy light for some absolutely dreamy romantics! The property is a photographer’s dream. So much magic can be done here!!!

I am really excited to expand my brand, so, let’s get ready to take on Texas!!!!
