WHAT WE DID: DECEMBER 8TH 2014

The Mondays when we have to split What We Did up into two separate posts are bittersweet. Sweet because y'all took so many awesome photos that we love to share and look at. Bitter because it takes Will so much longer to comb through your photos and select his faves. This was one of those weekends. We kinda knew it would be, though. What with the Holiday Lighting Fest, Krampus, wassail, Help-Portrait: Denton, and all of the other fundraisers and shows this weekend was jam-packed. We'll have a post full of pics from Friday evening's festivities up later today, but in the meantime, here's What We Did for the past seven days. 

Click on the images below to be led back to that photographer's Instagram account. Then, follow 'em and make a new 'gram buddy! As always, don't forget to tag your pics with #WDDI while you're hustling and bustling the rest of the holiday season to make sure your pics wind up right here in our weekend round up!

How many engagements have y'all seen on the square? They probably weren't photographed as beautifully as this one by Zach Ashcraft.

West Oak Coffee Bar is just too pretty. We'd say that about 25% of this week's images tagged with #WDDI were taken within West Oak's brick walls.
