Sydnie & Bryant – Engagement Session at The Dallas ArboretumDallas, TX

I am so excited to share Sydnie and Bryant’s engagement photos!  Because we live in Texas we had to reschedule their session several times due to crazy weather, but we finally got an amazingly beautiful day!  Speaking of crazy weather, they even had some on the day that Bryant proposed to Sydnie at the arboretum.  Here is their sweet proposal story!

“The week before the proposal, I asked Bryant what we were doing for my birthday the following Saturday. He asked if I wanted to see the 12 days of Christmas at the arboretum. Funny story we had gotten lunch with our friends before that, and they were explaining how my friends brother was planning to propose to his girlfriend at the arboretum the following Saturday (Bryant panicked at that moment but wanted to stick with his plan). The day of the proposal, the weather started to turn early afternoon. We planned originally to get to the arboretum at 3:00 but Bryant started rushing me as I was getting ready. This is when he started acting suspicious. He finally gets me in the car and we start driving to the arboretum. It began lightly sprinkling. I asked Bryant if we could reschedule because of the weather and he was insistent we go. We pulled into the parking lot and I told him I wouldn’t go in without an umbrella. He rushed into the gift shop and purchased an umbrella. We headed toward “Day 1” and looked at the display. There was a sign indicating day 2 was to the left, but Bryant pulled me to the right instead. We then started walking, silently, toward crepe myrtle alley. We headed down for aisle of trees and Bryant all of a sudden dove into his proposal speech. A photographer was waiting behind us capturing the moment!”

I had so much fun hanging out with these two and I can’t believe I have to wait an entire year for their wedding day!  I can already tell it is going to be amazing!

Jessica & Jake – Engagement Session at Japanese Gardens & Trinity ParkFort Worth, Texas

These two get married next year and I am so excited.  They were so sweet together during their session while we explored the Japanese Gardens and Trinity Park.  They chose to wear Oklahoma University shirts for the second part of of their session which is really fun.   A cool fact about these two is that they are both high school Band teachers!  I love it!  I think I have always been amazed at people who are musical and secretly wish I was musically inclined!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their session.

This little doll face is ONE!  I am just head over heels with her attitude and all the FUN outfits Mom always brings to her photo shoots.  On this day to celebrate turning one she had a summer time swim look, a bunny rabbit reading picnic, an adventurous Hawaiian romper, an aviator & a classic white dress.  This girl is styling!  She matches those outfits with spunk, cuteness and a sweet disposition.  I have loved watching her grow this year and I can’t wait to see what a little lady she turns into.  Happy Birthday Sophie!
