Antony and Stephanie’s proposal was a sweet one. These two met at A&M, and what better way to start your adventure into marriage together than a proposal under the glorious Century Tree? I met with Antony and their family and friends in front of the Academic Building while Stephanie was in the MSC under the impression that she was there for an awards ceremony for her sister. I always love the crazy plans that going into pulling off a proposal. It adds so much excitement and anticipation to the moment! Before Stephanie got the Century Tree, everyone headed inside a nearby building with a view to make sure they could see everything, but that it was still a private moment for just Antony and Stephanie. They walked to the middle of the walkway underneath the tree, Antony got down on one knee, popped the question, and Stephanie said yes! The smiles on their faces were absolutely amazing. I loved the moment when everyone came rushing out of the building to give them hugs and congratulations. What a sweet moment! Congratulations you two! It was an honor to capture your proposal.
Meet Michelle and Josh! I'm super excited to be photographing their wedding this weekend at the Carriage House in Conroe! For their engagement session, Michelle wanted to shoot at the place they met and fell in love: Texas A&M. All of the locations have meaning to them both, and it's really sweet that they put so much thought into it. Obviously there's the Century Tree, a TAMU romance staple. The legend is if you walk under the tree together, you'll be together forever, which is why you'll see people strategically avoiding it when walking from class to class as well as elaborate proposals with a full Corps of Cadet saber arch. We went to Kyle Field (always lots of fun) because it's a place they hold very dear and many fun times were had there. And finally, we shot at Research Park, a place Michelle and Josh went to often on dates and just to hangout. Oh, and they brought their fencing sabers along for a few shots because it's a passion they both share and did while in college. I can't wait to see what this Saturday has in store for them!
Beautiful Stephanie married her adoring fiance, Allen, this past weekend. A couple of weeks before the wedding, Stephanie, her mom, two of her bridesmaids and I adventured onto the TAMU campus for her bridal session. I love this sweet girl and her genuine heart. Her smile is contagious, and I'm thankful Katie and Lauren came along to make her laugh at just the right moments. Stephanie's wedding was full of emotion and I may or may not have shed a few tears, but I loved every second of it. Can't wait to share their wedding day super soon!

For Rachel and Nathan's engagement session, we went to Texas A&M's campus for some classic Century Tree photos, as well as out to Lake Bryan to capture them in some romantic sunset light. These two met during their time at Texas A&M, so naturally the Century Tree was a perfect place to start the session! Rachel and I met up for coffee one evening to discuss her and Nathan's wedding, and I knew we were going to have a good time during the session and the rest of their wedding planning process because we sat and talked for 3 hours. I love it when I can connect with my brides on a deeper level than just being their wedding photographer, and their session didn't disappoint! Happy to celebrate with these two in January! Enjoy!
