Dallas Arts District Engagement Session

Kendall and DJ’s engagement session

Nothing makes us more excited than looking through our client’s gorgeous engagement pictures. We’re loving Kendall and DJ’s Dallas arts district engagement session by Dyan Kethley Photography. Some of our favorites include a stunning magnolia tree that really makes the pair pop! This couple is tying the knot in a mixed Christen and Jewish ceremony this fall and we can’t wait to see their dream wedding come to life!

How they met

Kendall and DJ’s love story is one for the books! Having met in high school, these two have been in each other’s lives for 10 years now! They first met at an end of year recital, where Kendall performed with her drill team and DJ rocked out to John Mayer’s “No Such Thing”. The two flirted for almost 9 years but were living separate lives; DJ in Fort Worth and Kendall in Dallas. In 2015, the couple reunited at the Byron Nelson while attending separately and the rest is history!

How he proposed

After commuting between Dallas and Fort Worth to spend time together, the couple decided to move in together in September of 2016. DJ had bigger plans then just moving in together though. Before the couple received the keys to their new house, DJ moved a couple of things in. He lined the living room with tea candles and rose petals and hung pictures of all their “firsts” on the wall. The final frame was left empty with only a question mark in the center. While proposing DJ said, “And this will be the picture of when I got down on one knee and asked you to spend the rest of your life with me.” After celebrating with hugs, kisses, and champagne, DJ took Kendall to their new backyard where family and friends were waiting to celebrate the newly engaged couple!

Exceeded all of my

very high


The entire Pop Parties team is the most organized, communicative, and on-it team I have encountered Their response time is unbelievable and made my entire wedding day stress-free. Not one detail was missed, and the wedding was the most beautiful and fun evening. They maintained professionalism, while also feeling like a close friend through the entire process. I could not recommend them enough.
