Arianne Lewis is a Published Luxury Fashion Photographer based out of Dallas, Forth Worth Texas.
Ari offers Unique and Luxury Wedding, Fashion and Conceptual/Editorial photography in the areas of Dallas, Fort Worth, Southlake, Westlake, Terrel Hills, Trophy Club, Bellaire and Turtle Creek Texas. She is also a seasoned destination photographer both internationally and nationally.
Ari grew up in Santa Cruz County & Ventura County, California amongst the hustle and bustle of her mothers' wedding planning business and 5 other siblings. Her father, a recently passed world-renowned abstract artist, taught her the importance of finding her niche in her inherited artistic talent.
At just ten years old, Ari procured a Nikon film camera. Immediately she learned that, through photographs she could not only capture the moment for others, she could turn that photo in to something worth amplifying and presenting as a work of art to friends and family. Ari's passion and talent grew from there. She now looks back and realizes how her life's journey truly molded her into this role.
"As a youth I found myself wedding and reception "hopping". nothing had me more excited than to see how the event was going to play out, be decorated etc. One day it just clicked for me: my grandmother grew up as a model and owned a wedding cake business for 20 years. My mother found herself as a wedding planner in between her hours of working as the Regional manager for Elizabeth Arden Makeup line. My uncles all excelled and found great satisfaction in photography. My father also taught art and photography in colleges country wide and was an incredible abstract artist. Its no wonder Ive found myself in this niche of a "Wedding Fashion Photographer! And of course, considering the fact that it is literally in my genes, I'm loving every minute of it."
These days among the "photo"-graphers and "Faux-tographers", Arianne sets herself apart with her Couture, Slightly avant garde, always magazine worthy approach to photography. Ari perceives and shoots each photo as a potential crowd-stopping art piece. Creative lighting, stunning color and surprising locations make each photo so much more than just a simple snapshot. Ari refers to her photography sessions as "productions" because quite simply, thats what they are. The amount of effort and personalized details that go into each shoot, not to mention the post production magic, is unequivocal to other photographers.
Ari draws inspiration from many entities, including: Anthropologie Urban Outfitters, Vogue Magazine, Vanity Fair and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine. (Which she is in). She also pulls inspiration from other mixed resources like Benefit, Juicy Couture and Mac Marketing. Haute Couture fashion on the runway out of Europe and Betsy Johnson also play a part in the inspirations that excited and influence her. Mixed media films such as Mary Poppins Returns and opulent movie costumes like Marie Antoinette get her wheels turning!
