Amy & Casey – Engagement Portraits at Trinity Park & StockyardsFort Worth, Texas

Amy & Casey are getting married next winter and I was so excited to hang out with these two before Thanksgiving.  They brought along their incredibly well behaved doggie – Leroy – and we had fun at Trinity park and the Fort Worth Stockyards.

These two both attended Texas Christian University and met while studying abroad in Spain.  They learned to speak Spanish, became friends and within months of being back in the United States they found themselves together.  Their friendship is apparent when you see them together, they have an honesty about them and are so comfortable in each others arms.  Their smiles, laughter and the super adorable Leroy made this engagement session so much fun!

I can’t believe I have to wait a year to photograph Amy & Casey again – it will be worth the wait though!  Congrats you two!

Ashley & Josh – Engagement Portraits at Fort Worth ParkFort Worth, Texas

Ashley and Josh met at a wedding and were flung together and now we are approaching their own wedding day this summer!  Josh is a sweetheart and I love how he proposed to Ashley, here is their proposal story in her own words:

Josh is a big hunter. So he had been telling me for a few weeks that he was buying a new boat. I was supportive but definitely not interested in helping pick one out. I only became interested when he told me that there was nowhere to store it, so I would have to park my car outside of the garage so it could stay in there. I agreed, but wasn’t excited. When I got home that day, I couldn’t open the garage door. I went through the front door and he was so excited to show me the boat. When we got to the garage, there was not a “real” boat, but there was a tiny toy boat with a ring on it. When I turned around, he was on one knee. I quickly realized all of those trips to “look at boats” were trips to the jeweler with my sister in laws to pick the perfect ring.

These two love a laid back life with a side of adventure.  For their engagement session we selected gorgeous nature locations.  I love what Ashley shared with me about how they like to spend time together:

We love to travel. We have been to Hawaii, Florida and New Mexico together in the past year. We love spending time with our families and being outdoors. One of our favorite things is sitting on the patio having drinks in the cool weather.

Sign me up for drinks on the patio – especially a cup of hot coffee on a cool day!  I can’t wait for their wedding at their home church in Aledo and McDavid Studio at Bass hall and if they find a way to incorporate a boat!  It would make a great grooms cake!!

Allison & Michael – Engagement Session at Park & Sundace SquareFort Worth, Texas

Allison & Michael are just darling! I had such a great time getting to  know them both at their engagement session a few weeks ago.  These two met through a roommate and although they have had to do too much long distance during their relationship they are now finally in the same area as we lead up to their wedding in June.  Michael is a doll – I love his smile and most of all I adore how much he made Allison laugh.  His antics and sweet embraces made the session!  We had gorgeous weather too!

Thanks guys for allowing me to photograph your engagements and I am so looking forward to the wedding day with your awesome team!

Ragan & Alex – Engagement Portraits in Sundance Square & Nature ParkFort Worth, Texas

Ragan & Alex met at TCU and their love story has continued on for over 4 years and headed towards the altar next May!  I can’t wait for their Fort Worth Zoo wedding – it is going to be amazing!  These two are totally cute together and I love their smiles and how they just fit perfectly together no matter how I had them pose.  Ragan is extra cute and has a super fashion sense – if you love any of her clothes from this session head on over to her boutique of Camp Bowie – Hulla B’Lu!  For their session we did a little bit nature, a little bit city!  It was the perfect vibe and I had a great time getting to know them and chat about their upcoming wedding – most excited, not going to lie – for some animal sightings during the wedding.

Congrats you two!

Cherrell & Alan – Engagement Session at Dallas Arboretum & Arts DistrictDallas, Texas

I am just so excited for Cherrell & Alan’s New Years Eve wedding next year!  That’s right – I have to wait over a year to photograph this gorgeous couple again!  I don’t know how I am going to wait that long!

These two were pulled together through common friends online – Cherrell was bold and reached out and Alan was happy to get that message.  Shortly after they had their first two dates – all in one day!  These two have been doing their relationship long distance since the start due to Alan finishing medical school and now in his Residency while Cherrell is in Physician Assistant School.

Alan lights up with his gorgeous big smile anytime Cherrell is near – I can see these two are smitten for each other and that they have a solid relationship and great respect for one another.  For some fun at the end of their shoot we headed to a medical center for a few Doctor themed photos to pay honor to their professions.

Katherine & Mason – Engagement Photos at Trinity Park & StockyardsFort Worth, Texas

Katherine & Mason met while attending Oklahoma State.  They first crossed each other’s paths as Katherine utilized Mason’s frat house kitchen to bake up some killer s’mores cookie bars.  He felt that it was best not to leave a pretty girl unattended in the kitchen and he then had first dibs on those cookies too!  Later on as they joined the same group of friends to study it clicked and these two started dating.  They have been together 6 years and life has taken them on many adventures together.  Right now Katherine is finishing up Law School before the wedding and Mason is working with his family business out of town.  Soon though, they will be married, together and living a “grown up” life as Mason calls it.  I know the adulting they have ahead of them will be fun, blessed and full of laughter because these two are darling together and full of giggles – especially when Mason gets close to Katherine.  She was getting tickled all session by him!  For their shoot we really embraced the Fort Worth vibe hitting up the Stockyards and Trinity Park for some nature photos.
Can’t wait for the wedding at the Ashton Depot in September!

Kristin & Michael – Engagement Photography at Chandor GardensWeatherford, Texas

This cute couple met in Denver through mutual friends.  Both Aggies they were far from home – chasing dreams, jobs and adventure when they were introduced to each other almost 2 years ago.  Now in just a few weeks they will be getting married at a beautiful new venue, Dove Ridge Vineyard.  Kristin & Michael are adorable together – lots of laughter and they just melt into each other.  Kristin says she moved to Colorado to seek adventure – the outdoors and more – I think she found the best life has to offer in  Michael.  I know their lives will be full of exploration and I can’t wait for the wedding!

Mary Katherine & Wes – Engagement Portrats at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Mary Katherine and Wes met at Texas Christian University in business class.  Wes caught her eye as he was giving a presentation and now, 7 years later, they are getting married this December.  After college these two and their dog Cash moved to Dallas.  We visited the Dallas Arboretum and the Lake for their engagement session.  They spend lots of time with their pup at White Rock Lake – Cash LOVES the lake!  He was such  good boy for us during their photo shoot.  In January Wesley popped the question on Mary Katherine’s birthday and I can’t wait to celebrate with them on New Years Eve Weekend!

Morgan and Todd – Engagement Portraits in Fort Worth7th Street Bridge & Japanese Gardens

Morgan & Todd are the cutest!  They literally JUST got engaged this last weekend we followed up the proposal in Dallas with a session 2 days later!  I can’t wait for their wedding later this year in Fort Worth so we used some of my favorite spots in Fort Worth for their engagement session like the Japanese Gardens, 7th street bridge and downtown near Sundance Square.

These two were brought together by mutual friends and have since started life with some big adventures.  Todd is in the military so Morgan has followed him to an out of state assignment and is ready to be a military wife.  I know their life will be full of fun and lots of love and laughter.  They started planning their wedding pre-engagement during Todd’s last deployment.  It’s hard to actually propose while living countries apart so when he returned he proposed.  It may not be the traditional order of things but as a Air Force brat myself I totally understand having to do everything on the governments time.  What is obvious is how happy they are together.  I had a great time getting to know Todd, talking video games, military life and his travels and finding out about the things they love to do together.  I am inspired to sign up for Hello Fresh after photographing these guys – sounds like they have lots of good meals and laughter at home together thanks to this meal service!

I will see you two in the Fall for the wedding!

Katie and Allen – Engagement Portraits in Fort WorthTrinity Park & Downtown

Katie & Allen are adorable!  They have made their home in Arlington with their two pups that could not be a better reflection of themselves.  They met through mutual friends – best friends that married each other brought these two into each others lives!  Could not be a better way to meet and be sure you have life in common.  Katie & Allen love to adventure and can be found playing top golf or attending a game – especially the Rangers!  After 4 years these two will say I Do this summer at Piazza in The Village and it is going to be one FUN party with DJ Andy Austin there to bring the party!

See you both in a few months!!!
