I remember how awfully cold it was due to the 25MPH wind that day. We decided not to reschedule and went ahead with the session and let me tell you, Lissa + Andrew were such troopers for being in the chilly wind with me.
Spring is here and the weather is getting warmer and warmer each day! That means that engagement and wedding season is upon us! I couldn't be more excited to be blogging about my beautiful couples that are/will be starting the next chapter of their lives together. Rosie & Tim's engagement session at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano, Texas is one I won't forget soon. I've been looking forward to this blog post and I'm overly excited to finally share about this lovely couple with you all!
When I first talked with Rosie on the phone about their engagement session inquiry, I can just tell right away that she is a lovely gal - which she totally is!! Rosie and Tim have been together for a year and a half and they met each other through a mutual friend who had hooked them up (haha) They hit it off right away and who knew that in such a short amount of time being together, Tim knew that Rosie is the one he is going to spend the rest of his life with. Prior to our phone consultation, Rosie had told me that she moved to be with Tim in Dallas from Houston, after Tim had accepted a job in the finance industry. I instantly felt relation with her because I had moved to be with Kevin (my fiance) to Dallas from Alaska! So I knew what it felt like to leave your friends and family behind to be with the one you love, not knowing what the journey ahead was going to be like. Okay, I'm getting off track here - haha, but you can just tell that they enjoy and love one another very much. I love the fact that Rosie and Tim are very outdoorsy! They love to travel together, go camping, hiking, anything you can think of that's outdoor spontaneous - that would be them. Not only were they a very out-going and adventurous couple but they love being around their family as well.
Rosie and Tim will be getting married in California where Tim had proposed to Rosie. When they both shared their side of the stories of how Tim proposed, I could just imagine how beautiful it was! Tim took Rosie to Sonoma, CA during Thanksgiving of 2016. While they were there, they went to a county winery (because come on, who doesn't love wine?!), where they were able to taste test different kinds of wine. From there on, you can only imagine how beautiful it must have been when Tim proposed.
So as you know, Dallas can be very outdoorsy and since Rosie and Tim have a golden doodle puppy together, they wanted to incorporate him in their engagement session as well (he was the cutest big pup!). Immediately, I thought of Arbor Hills and it was the perfect location! We had so much walking around the trails, trying out some poses, making each other laugh and smile. I definitely got to know Rosie and Tim a lot more and felt that at the end of the day, they were more than my clients, they are a part of my photography family.
Rosie + Tim,
First of all, Rosie, I know for a fact that you are going to be a gorgeous bride! If Tim doesn't cry when he sees you walking down the aisle, you better keep walking down the aisle until he sheds a tear! haha... Tim, you are one lucky guy to be spending the rest of your life with this beautiful and down to earth girl. I can't wait to see all your gorgeous wedding photos on Facebook!
