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!

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!

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!

Carter Ann & Michael – Engagement at the Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

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!
