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!
The Century Tree
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!
First things first, Sydney and Brandon are pretty much the most adorable couple ever. They just work so well together, and it was clear to me the entire session that they were made for each other. We explored Downtown Bryan for a bit and then made our way over to the TAMU campus to take a few (super romantic) photos in the fading evening light under the Century Tree. When I found out Sydney and Brandon were high school sweethearts, I was so, so excited! Having married my own high school sweetheart, I always have a ton of fun meeting and photographing people who met the love of their life in similar situations. Enjoy these two cuties engagement session! How freaking gorgeous are both of their smiles?! You can see why I was obsessing over them the entire session.
