Old Baylor Park Engagement Session | Shelby & Cody

Eee! I’m so happy to finally share Shelby and Cody’s engagement session! When Shelby asked me to be their wedding photographer, I couldn’t have said yes faster. We’ve talked about these moments for so long now, and the fact that they’re finally here is crazy awesome. Shelby’s mom’s side of the family is from North Carolina, so we’re headed to a small town outside of Asheville for their big day in June! Curtis and I are both honored and so, so excited to be there with them on their day.

As for the engagement session, we had originally planned to do the whole thing at Pedernales Falls State Park outside of Dripping Springs, but…fate had other plans for us. We drove together for nearly 3 hours to reach the state park, we got out of the car, Shelby and Cody got changed into their first outfit of the session, we walked about a quarter of a mile down to the falls, and right as they came into view… it started raining. Not just tiny sprinkles that you could deal with..like full on rain shower, and there was no where to hide. We all felt gutted. It was one of those things that you just have to laugh about, otherwise you’ll just be far too upset over something so silly. (Note to self: bring umbrellas EVERYWHERE) So, we got back in the car to assess the damage done, and decided the only thing we really could do was head back to College Station. Basically, we took a very scenic route to Dripping Springs to eat at Schlotzsky’s, y’all. But, it was so much fun getting to hang out with Shelby and Cody, and get to know them even more!

Fast forward a few weeks, Shelby and Cody decided another trip to Pedernales wasn’t in the cards, so we went to one of my favorite spots near College Station, Old Baylor Park. We were blessed with the most beautiful sunshine and weather. It truly was dreamy! I’m so thankful for friends who trust me enough to be there with them on their wedding days and laugh about a rainstorm that made us drive 3 hours back home with wet hair and runny makeup (that would have been me.. I’m sure the lady at Schlotzsky’s was like.. wow, what is wrong with her?). Curtis and I are super excited to be the ones that capture such a special, special day for two amazing people. I CANNOT WAIT!!!

Hailey + Chad | Wind Dancer Retreat Wedding

I really cannot get enough of Hailey and Chad's gorgeous wedding at Wind Dancer Retreat in Bryan. It was my first time out there, and I was soooo in love with the beautiful light that came through the trees while we were taking their bride and groom portraits. Talk about romantic. These two are such passionate people in their own separate lives, it's no wonder their love for Christ and each other runs so strongly. I loved meeting with Hailey throughout her wedding planning process and getting to see more of her sweet heart and learning about her love for Chad. I'm just so happy they had a gorgeous spring day to celebrate that love! I didn't get to stay through the entire wedding day, but I'm so thankful to have captured some really important moments for them to look back on for a lifetime.

I am so excited to share Taylor's gorgeous bridal session at the Antique Rose Emporium (I just can't stay away, y'all)! We may have been attacked by love bugs the entire time, but I'm so happy with how these photos turned out. We got lucky with a gorgeous April day full of beautiful sunshine. Taylor is so sweet, and I had such a great time with her and her mom. Easy going, relaxed clients are the best, y'all. It feels more like you're hanging out with a friend! She made for one beautiful bride, and I feel pretty darn blessed to be the one that captured this amazing time in her life.

Hailey + Chad | McKinney Falls Engagement Session

 

Hailey and Chad are getting married tomorrow! I can't believe how fast the past few months have gone by since their engagement session at McKinney Falls State Park outside of Austin. I've truly enjoyed getting to know this sweet couple throughout their wedding planning process, and I am so happy to finally share their engagement photos on the blog. Hailey has become more than a wedding client, she's become a friend. One that I can be open with and show my heart to, and I love so much. I cannot wait to see what she has planned for their friends and family on one of the best days of their lives!
