When I first met Vivian at the coffee shop, we clicked instantly. We were both bubbly, love dogs, and had similar past life experiences that we were able to relate with one another. But when she started talking about Jason, I just knew that I had to be a part of Vivian & Jason’s love story.
The best part about being a photographer who specializes in couples, is that I get to see how a couple are as one. Such as the affections towards one another, their soft embraces, sweet kisses, goofy traits, and genuine laughter. I find so much joy in that and Chelsea + Ryan are an example of why I do what I do. Capturing blissful & genuine moments.
For Elizabeth + Max's engagement session, we picked the heart of Dallas' park, Klyde Warren Park. Thus being my first time there, it was such a gorgeous park filled with scenic
views of Dallas' cityscape. Then we drove 5 minutes to the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge
where we were able to see the Dallas Skyline.
The first time I met up with Jane and her mother, I had a very great time getting to know who they were. Jane's mom, Jennifer was the chillest mom I've ever met! She has been mistaken as Jane's older sister many times, and I don't blame her (they do look like sisters)! Their daughter and mother relationship was one of a kind that I absolutely adored. During our consultation, I learned that Jane and Dexter's families are like one big family. They all went to the same church and got along well with one another - that is how Jane and Dexter met.
Upon hearing how Dexter proposed to Jane, it was not your extravagant proposal but sweet and intimate - just how I like! Jane and Dexter are an adventurous couple who loved hiking trails. There's a usual spot where they would go for a walk and who knew that that spot was going to become a special place forever in their hearts.
When Jane told me that she wanted their engagement session to be in an outdoor location that is completely surrounded by nature, I knew that Turner Falls Park in Davis, Oklahoma was the one. I've seen so many beautiful photos taken at Turner Falls and it was a goal of mine to have explore nature's beauty and have an engagement session there - Jane and Dexter were the perfect candidates!
I love it when my clients open up to me with their interests and hobbies, that was the case with Jane and Dexter. They were so lovely and warm. We carpooled in my car and had so much fun getting to know each other on a more personal level, it was as if we were long time friends! It is always my goal with every client to build a strong relationship where they can be themselves and be relaxed with me. During our session, they were so laid-back, fun and spontaneous!
I'm going to keep this short and simple because I am so over the moon with their engagement session! Having to capture Jane and Dexter's love was so fulfilling. You can just tell how passionately in love they are with one another. And with that, it always makes for AMAZING photos! <3
I cannot wait for their romantic rustic and woodsy theme wedding in December! <3
