Photographer Details


Kelli Ahern is the other half of Nine Photography which was established with her husband, Brendan, in 2005. Her interest in photography started when she was in a comedy troupe and began taking pictures for the troupe. Since then, her focus has turned to weddings and documentary style photography with Nine Photography. But when she shoots for personal works, the landscape and nature are her muse. Traveling and wandering are consistent themes in her photography and continue to be an ever, on-going discovery.


Melissa is a professional wedding and portrait photographer based in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. She received her Bachelor’s of Fine Art in Photography from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2010.  When she isn’t photographing fabulous humans in love or chasing beautiful light, Melissa likes spending her free time with her husband, Nick, and two cats, Niles and George.

Jessica Latchaw – Match and Lighter Photography

Jessica’s interest in photography started with her grandpa who was a photographer and videographer. Growing up around old cameras and film it wasn’t long before she wound up with a camera in her hands. Jessica loves all types of photography but always finds herself drawn to taking photos of people. She loves the stories that can be told in those candid captured moments. Jessica became much more serious about photography after her then boyfriend (now husband) started dragging her along on event photography gigs during the weekends. Eventually she bought her own SLR and has continued her photography journey. When she isn’t photographing weddings, family photo sessions or cute babies she is a volunteer photographer for Texas Cattle Dog Rescue, helping wonderful rescue dogs find their forever homes with top-notch doggie photo sessions. Jessica also loves spending time with her own rescue animals (2 dogs and 4 “accidental” cats), her main squeeze and supporter Aaron, and laughing as much and as often as possible.


Phyllis Kwedar
After a successful career with IBM, Phyllis retired to focus full time on her family, photography and community. An accomplished photographer, Phyllis has been honing her craft for many years, excelling in travel, outdoors, and sports as well as “behind the scenes” on-location photography for independent films and documentaries. When she is not behind a camera, Phyllis is a community consultant sharing her business acumen with various local non-profits.


Alicia Wells – @alitexas (instagram)
Alicia received a BS in psychology and a Masters in radio, television and film from the University of Houston. She worked in the Television and Film industry for many years before staying home to raise her ever moving family in Detroit, Toronto, Sweden, Cleveland, Houston, and finally Fort Worth.
