Traveling to clients for engagement sessions is one of my absolute favorite things to do. There is nothing more special than an engagement session that documents the couple in a special or important place-- and extra points if I get to work in a new location! That does so much for my creativity and I love discovering new places. For this session I traveled southeast of Dallas to groom, John's family ranch and got to spend some time with him and his fiance, Lauren. They are getting married next summer in northern Michigan and I love that we got to spend time at a location that is so important to John for these photos and next summer will get to spend their wedding at a place that is so important to Lauren. I want to point out that Texas had the best sunsets and these two look straight out of a magazine ad. Bonus points, I got to photograph a few longhorn on the ranch. Check out some of my favorites!
Danielle and Chad were married at the end of September on a day that deceptively looked like fall but felt like the hottest day in July. It was truly a scorcher, which made being next to the waters of Gull Lake perfect. The day was really perfect and it was so wonderful their sweet kids Harper and Nolan as the flower girl and ring bearer. Danielle's dress was to die for and she was just the most stunning bride! Here are some favorites!
I figured it was about time I blogged about my trip to Waco, Texas earlier this year where I visited Magnolia Market at the Silos with my business partner. We were there on a business trip for The Bloom Workshop and got a behind the scenes tour and it was such a blast! Today we will be visiting again, during the Silobration and I am so excited to be in such a warm, inviting place again during such a festive time! Here are some shots from around the market-- it truly is beautiful no matter which direction you look. So much time and care has been taken to make everything an experience! Exciting to add some new photos from the silobrations to my collection!
I met up with Kerri and Austin on a bright summer morning that quickly turned dark. The sun shone and the rain fell intermittently and right as we wrapped our session it downpoured. I love the added romance and moodiness the darkening skies add to their gorgeous lavender field engagement session. Kerri had always dreamed of getting married in a field like this but like I just mentioned, Michigan weather has a mind of its own and they are opting for indoor nuptials next year. We thought it would be a good compromise and fun way to keep her dream alive to shoot their engagement here, and my only regret is that you can't SMELL what we smelled during this session. Heavenly doesn't even come close as a description and it was peaceful beyond compare. I hope you enjoy some of my favorites!
