I’ve known Aaron & Wendy for a little while now and I’ve been able to see their relationship grow from the start. With that said, I was super excited when they told me they were engaged and even more excited when they asked me to take their engagement photos. They are a perfect pair! They were great together when adventuring down rock walls and through cold water with me (to get the right shot!), even though it was pretty chilly outside. I am looking forward to photographing them on their wedding day!
These two get married this weekend, say what?!? Although their engagement session was on a chilly day, I imagine we will have some beautiful sunshine on their big day! Their proposal story is super sweet, and here is how Marisa said it went down:
We were on a ski trip in Colorado with a group of friends, and we were on our walk back to the lodge after our last day on the slopes. I (Marisa) had made a joke about this being the worst part of our day, since it was a real hassle to carry skis and walk in snowboots on the icy walking paths. Lance suggested stopping for a picture, since the mountain scenery was gorgeous and there were some nice spots. So while we did indeed get a few pictures, I got more than that when Lance got down on his knee and got the ring out. Of course I said yes, and back at the lodge our friends celebrated with us!
Can’t wait to capture their big day!
How adorable are Claudia and Patrick?? Just the cutest, if you ask me! One thing I like about Texas Decembers is that it still looks like fall! We got ALL of the fall colors during their engagement session and it was absolutely fabulous. Claudia and Patrick met while working together about 3 years ago. Patrick is now in school in Alabama so they are having to do long distance for now. They love traveling together so Patrick proposed to Claudia while they were on a trip to Canada. Here is their proposal story in her own words:
In order to appropriately celebrate our summer together in 2017, we decided to take a long weekend trip together to Canada. We found a good flight sale, and being the travel aficionados we are, a trip to Ottawa and Montreal was the perfect end to a great three months of being in the same city. Patrick was insanely sneaky, and it should be known that I had NO IDEA the entire time that he was planning everything in the background. We had dinner reservations (not suspicious since once again, we were celebrating the end of the summer), and Patrick suggested we stop by this university campus on our way to dinner. McGill University, is what I would describe as the “Harvard of Canada”. It is old-style, historical, “Hogwarts-y”, and filled with pretty flowers. We walked around in massive circles because Patrick wanted to find this one cool entrance. We were on vacation, and I was super relaxed, so the fact that we were for some reason walking in circles to find this one particular spot didn’t even seem to bother me or raise any sort of questions. When we finally found the entrance, we walked together up this long walk-way to the main building with a beautiful flower garden in front that looked like a heart (really it was McGill’s crest, but it looked like a heart to me). When we got to the top, Patrick got down on one knee, and despite the fact that I think I blacked out in shock and unfortunately couldn’t tell you the exact words that came out of his mouth, it was the sweetest and most beautiful question he has ever asked me. Of course, after multiple “omg’s” and tears, I said yes!
They will be getting married next year and I cannot wait for their big day! It is sure to be a blast!
I loved Brynn and Michael’s engagement session!! We started off at Brynn’s parents home. They have a beautiful back yard and this is also where they will be getting married next year! Brynn and Michael are very into yoga, and I love that they wanted to incorporate that into their session. They had some pretty sweet poses and I love that it is something that they enjoy doing together. It makes the photos just that much more special. It was so much fun hanging with these two and seeing what they love to do together. I am so excited for their wedding next year!
These two met at frog camp at TCU and soon started dating after. They have now been together for 6 years and tie the knot next year! Mitch proposed on his parents lake property in Granbury and then surprised Morgan with an engagement party with friends and family. We explored Lakeside Park and White Rock Lake for their engagement session. Check out some of my favorite moments!
Kelsey and Kal sat in cubicles next to each other at work for about a year before they started dating! A mutual friend invited them to a concert, and that’s where there story began. These two were the sweetest and I love their proposal story shared below in Kelsey’s own words:
We went to visit a friend and her husband in San Antonio and had planned to go to the river walk and Fredericksburg while we were down there. On Saturday morning, Kal said he knew of a neat place to eat lunch on the river walk so we drove down there. As we were walking on the river walk, he showed me a place called ‘marriage island’ (which I had never heard of at the time). There were rose petals sprinkled and our names and picture hanging from the tree. He got down on one knee and proposed. My mom, dad and sister were hiding out taking pictures and videos and surprised me. It was absolutely perfect!
Check out some of my favorite moments from their engagement session!
Sarah and Nick met while in the marching band at TCU. Since TCU is such a special part of their relationship, Nick chose to incorporate it into his proposal! Here is how he did it in Sarah’s own words.
“I knew it was coming, but Nick surprised me with making it happen earlier than I thought it would be. He told me that we were going out for a surprise dinner downtown but wouldn’t say anything else. When I asked what I should wear, I started getting suspicious because he responded, “Your green shirt, blue flower pants, orange shoes, Kendra Scott earrings, and pearls!” We got in the car, and he blindfolded me, and we started driving to the TCU stadium. Much to his amusement, I was still able to tell all the roads we were turning onto, so he had to take a more convoluted route. We got out of the car, and still blindfolded, I was led into the stadium. I only figured out where we were when I heard a golf cart go by. He took me to the band section, as that was where we spend a good portion of our time together, and he had the whole area decorated. He un-blindfolded me and handed me a book that he had written and had illustrated and printed. It was a poem of our story with the last page being the proposal!! I said, “Yes!”
Not only did they meet and get engaged at TCU but they will also be getting married there next year! I cannot wait for their big day!
These two met in high school but it wasn’t until Michael returned from his deployment to finish school at Texas Tech did they start dating! I loved getting to know them during their engagement session! Here’s how Michael popped the question:
My family used to ranch out in West Texas and I have a cousin who still lives there with his wife and 2 adorable kids. We’re all really close and go out to visit any chance we get. As a little girl I’d always go explore the sand hills and look for arrowheads. We went to go visit over 4th of July weekend and we all went out to the old ranch to drive around. We stopped at my old sand hills and decided to go hunt for arrowheads. As we climbed to the top Michael pointed over my shoulder and asked if that looked like and old Indian dugout, when I turned back around he was down on one knee! It was almost 10 years to the day after we’d met.
Can’t wait for their wedding next year!
