Kelsey & Kal – Engagement Session at the Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

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!

Vera 18 Months (& Family!)Fort Worth, Texas

This little nugget is 18 months and getting SO big!  Vera is a sweet little thing with lots of sass and I always love getting to have her and her darling family in front of our camera’s.  For this photo shoot we met up at a nature location for some fun in the sun and wagon rides!  Big brother, Oliver was super excited to be in the wagon but Vera wanted it all to herself!  Can you blame her?

Celine & Wesley Engagement – Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, TX

These two made the drive from west Texas to do this morning session!  We went to the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake for some nature which is perfect since they will be saying “I Do” at the Texas Discovery Garden.   These two met at Texas Tech and wore their jersey’s for the second part of their session.  How fun!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their session!

Sarah & Matthew – First Look & Ceremony at the Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

I had the opportunity to get to know these two during their engagement session a few months back in Dallas.  Engagement sessions are a great time for me to get to know my couples, how they met, and what they do for fun but during their session they kept asking questions about ME!  This blew me away and was just the start of getting to know their sweet and generous characters.  I knew their wedding day would be one full of laughter and joy!  These two chose to do a first look in one of the gardens at the Arboretum, and it was nothing short of great!  We had a lot of fun snapping some pictures before the wedding around some of the pretty places in the Arboretum.  They said “I Do” under a beautiful arbor decorated with flowers that one of their dad’s made.  The sun setting, the arbor, and the lush garden set the scene for their happy ceremony.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!
