Taylor & Travis – Engagement Session at Winspear Opera House and Dallas ArboretumDallas, TX

I am so excited to share Taylor and Travis’ engagement session!  We met up in the early morning and they braved the Texas summer heat.  I loved how Travis made Taylor laugh and just how sweet they are together.  They told me about how many weddings they’ve been to together and how that led to many road trips.  What a fun way to spend time together and really get to know each other!  I love how Taylor tells their proposal story, because she clearly knows Travis so well!

“Unfortunately for Travis, I can read him like a book! Weeks beforehand I could tell something was up. He doesn’t plan ANYTHING and I’m a type A that carries a planner in her purse, so when he told me we were going to dinner with another couple three weeks in advance, I knew something was up. He may not have been a huge fan of it not being a surprise, but it was one of my favorite parts! I bought a new dress and made sure my hair and make-up looked great. It was perfect! We were in Sundance Square near the Christmas tree when he grabbed me by the shoulders and started rambling on about people waiting for us downtown. I was very confused ha! And then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him 3 or 4 times, while I kept saying yes over and over again. I think our families came out of the crowd when he finally realized I had said yes and then we came full turn and I found out our close friends and family were waiting to celebrate at a nearby restaurant.”

I cannot wait for their wedding next year!  It is going to be so much fun!

Laura & Jared – Engagement Session at The Winspear and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

Laura and Jared are getting married this upcoming December at the Ashton Depot!  They are planning for a brunch wedding, which I am super excited for.  These two met through friends at the church where they are both very involved.  Their engagement story is so cute; Laura describes the night in her own words:

“Jared asked me a couple of weeks in advance if he could plan an early birthday celebration for me and said he would make me dinner. I thought the proposal could be coming as the celebration was set for a dating anniversary and was a year from the day of a special date early in our relationship. He was really normal throughout the day (we went on a home tour that I had found), so I didn’t think it would actually happen. When we got to his apartment and it was normal (not covered in rose petals), I knew it wasn’t happening and so just settled in to a nice evening with him. We ended up tag teaming dinner and making it together where I was a little frustrated because he was using recipes from an Irish chef and all the measurements were in European measurements. We still had fun though. 🙂
After eating our dinner – and the from scratch Guinness chocolate cake he made me, he said that he had an early birthday present for me. He came back with a gift bag that had a photo book inside. The photos were from our time dating and while this probably should have been a trigger, I didn’t catch on at all and was absorbed in reliving the memories and enjoying the photos. He had also written a super sweet poem throughout the book (definitely should have caught on :)). About 3 pages from the end of the book, it said “I’ll never love another” and that’s when I knew it was happening. The last page of the book said “will you marry me?” and he got down on one knee and had the ring in his hand. I said “yes” immediately :).

What seemed like only a few minutes later, but apparently was 45 minutes, we heard a knock on the door and a bunch of friends came in for an engagement party. He had coordinated the whole thing and was paying careful attention to the time while I was processing being engaged :).”

I am looking forward to their big day in just a few months!  Congratulations Laura and Jared!

Kelley & Patrick – Engagement at Lakeside and Prather ParkDallas, Texas

Kelley and Patrick braved an early morning session so we could fight off this summer heat!  These two were introduced through mutual friends, and actually one of Kelley’s friend married one of Patrick’s best friends from college, and those were the ones who set them up! Check out some of my favorite images from their session.

Jessica & Rob – Engagement Session in Sundance Square and the StockyardsFort Worth, TX

I loved getting to know Jessica and Rob during their engagement shoot downtown and in the stockyards.  They laughed the whole time, even though it was quite warm, which was very sweet!  Here’s how they met:

“We met 5 years ago (April 2013) in Addison, Texas at Sherlocks. Rob is the guitarist for an 80s cover band called the Mullet Boyz and I was out with one of my friends – thought he was cute, so we stuck around and watched the show. Afterward we talked for a bit and exchanged numbers. A week later, he was playing another show in the area and invited me to come out – and rest is history!”

I can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Madison & Logan – Engagement Session at Highland Park and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

I am so excited to share Madison and Logan’s engagement session!!  These two were so cute and incredibly natural in front of the camera.  Even their two cute pups were perfect little models!  Their proposal story is so sweet and I love how Madison tells it in her own words:

“Logan began planning to propose October 2017, to which I had no clue. For our anniversary, which was on a Wednesday, he had gotten me a necklace that had an engraving on it. I wasn’t allowed to look at the engraving until Saturday, 1/13/18. He told me I would think too much into what it meant. Friday night Logan’s mom came into town to visit for the day. The following morning she took me to get our hair done (I found out later that Logan had planned that as well), then we went to lunch and said our goodbyes. Logan had told me that he had a surprise anniversary date planned for the afternoon after she went back home. We went to the Dallas Arboretum, where he told me he planned to get pictures taken as we had never done anything like that. Walking to the garden where we were going to meet the photographer he let me look at the engraving on the necklace which was 1/12/15 to infinity. He explained that the infinity meant a future proposal, to which I thought nothing of. When we got to the garden I was surprised by instant pictures being taken by the photographer, and strings of pictures of the two of us. As soon as we went around the corner I knew what was I happening. Logan asked and I of course said yes. We were then greeted by our families. The whole day was perfect!”

I loved getting to hang out with them and can’t wait for their January wedding next year!

Brittany & Rich – Engagement Session at the Kimbell Art Museum & Trinity ParkFort Worth, Texas

Brittany and Rich are just about as cute as it gets!  When we rolled up to the Kimbell Art Museum for the first part of our session, the weather was not looking so hot, but we stuck it out and it turned out to be perfect!

Here is how these two met:

“Rich and I met at the University of Oklahoma. Although we were friends and ran in the same circles, we did not date during our time there. Rich graduated and went on to law school while I was in my senior year. That December in 2013, OU went to the Sugar Bowl and played Alabama in New Orleans. We ran into each other there and the spark ignited. From then on, we were talking constantly.
Once summer rolled around, I went home to Coppell and Rich came home to Fort Worth. Rich was very persistent about getting to know me better and that’s when we started officially dating. That whole summer we were inseparable, fell in love quickly, and the rest is history.”

I loved getting to know them during their session and can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Haley & Bryce Engagement at Dove Ridge VineyardWeatherford, TX - Lindsey Morgan

Haley & Bryce are an incredibly sweet couple. Here is a little about how they met:

We met at work and had crushes on one another for a couple of months before really talking to one another. We both enjoy running and participated in our firm’s running group. One of the 5Ks was located in Dallas, giving us the perfect opportunity to carpool and exchange numbers. On another occasion, the rest of our running group bailed, and we decided to run anyways, even though it would be just the two of us. The run finished at a local brewery. Afterward, we took advantage of a few beverages on our “non-date” date 🙂 We took our friendship pretty slow and dated for about two years. We’ve enjoyed getting to know each other’s friends and family, attending church together, traveling, sharing our common interests and learning new ones” – Haley & Bryce

I am happy to have to have photographed their engagement and definitely look forward to shooting their wedding next year! Check out their photos below.

Addison & Kevin – Engagement Session at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, TX

Addison & Kevin are so cute!! I got to hang out with them for their engagement photos and it was so much fun.  These two really know how to work it for the camera.  We met up at the Dallas Arboretum and I think one of my favorite parts was when I had them dance with each other.  They were super sweet and goofy and even Kevin got twirled!  Then we went over to White Rock Lake to play with some colored powder.  I loved when Kevin threw all of his blue powder in Addison’s face and her entire face turned blue.  It was so fun hanging out with these two and they will be getting married next year!

Allison & Amir – Engagement Session at the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, Texas


Allison and Amir traveled from Midland, where they both live and work, for their engagement session.  These two Tech graduates have a sweet story of how they met:

“Amir and I met six years ago at Texas Tech University. I joined Alpha Chi Omega Sorority my first year at TTU. I kept running into Amir at Sigma Nu Fraternity parties through mutual friends. When we had our first conversation it felt like we were the only ones in the room, even though it was filled with at least one hundred people. We had such a memorable two years at TTU together; from attending each others date parties, to cheering on our Red Raiders on the football field.”

I’m excited to share some of my favorite images from their session and can’t wait for their wedding!
