Marissa & Jared’s preview blog – Engagement session in Deep Ellum

Marissa & Jared very recently got engaged and are starting the wedding planning as we speak.

Originally she wanted outdoors and nature but after I provided her with a list of my favorite locations they decided on Deep Ellum. There are many murals in Deep Ellum I absolutely love, some have just gone up in recent months so I was excited to see what was new.

Here are my favorites from today’s session ūüôā

Laura & William – Previews!

Meet my couple Laura & William! They will be married on October 14, 2018 at one of my very favorite venues Piazza in the Village!

This morning we braved the cold weather and did their engagements at Prairie Creek Park. They are a lovely couple and I cannot wait for the big day!

Danielle & Clint’s engagement previews!

Danielle & Clint will be tying the knot in May at one of my favorite venues 1899 Farmhouse, Wedding & Event Venue 

I photographed their engagements at Arbor Hills nature Preserve in Plano this morning, it was the most beautiful morning for a photo shoot 

Engagement session at the Dallas Arboretum – Courtnie & Jonathan

I will be photographing¬†Courtnie & Jonathan’s wedding in July at the¬†Las Colinas Country Club. This morning we met at the Dallas Arboretum. I¬†actually prefer to shoot in overcast rather than sunlight so I was thrilled when I looked outside this morning as I was preparing to leave.

If you have not been to the Arboretum during their Dallas Blooms, you must go, gorgeous tulips and flowers all over the garden! You still have until April 8, 2018 to do so 

Here are some of the best shots from the session!

 

Anna & Ethan’s engagement previews at Prather Park!

I met Anna & Ethan in the morning at Prather Park and we were literally the only ones there. It was such a pretty morning.

Take a look at their previews below, I always suggest a list of locations for my couples to choose from with a description, they fell in love with this area. Their wedding will take place at Mimosa Hall in October!

 

Engagement session previews – Stephanie & David

Stephanie & David plan to be married in November 2018. They are very much in love and so much fun to be around!

We did their session at Arbor Hills Nature preserve in Plano, TX. This time of year is my very favorite time to do sessions out there, the colors of Fall are everywhere!

Stephanie’s fabulous hair and makeup was done by the Blushbar based in Frisco, TX.

Here are some of my personal favorites!

John & Cristina’s engagement sneak peeks

It was like straight out of the movie Forrest Gump…

Jenny Curran: Why are you so good to me?
Forrest Gump: You’re my girl!
Jenny Curran: [pause] I’ll always be your girl.

From the couple:

John and I met 5 years ago, November 2012. At the time I was going to college in Richmond, VA but my parents were living in Texas. I was home on thanksgiving break for a total of 3 days and John and I met during that visit home. We actually met while temporarily working at Victoria’s Secret, were folding yoga pants in the stock room, ha!! I Facebook creeped John the night we met, exchanged phone numbers via Facebook and the rest is history….

John proposed 4 years later on Christmas Eve surrounded by our parents, his grandmother, sister and nephew. He was home on a 2 week leave from the Marine Corps training pipeline which lasted a total of 8 months.

Our wedding is August 26, 2017 at the Piazza in the Village in Colleyville, TX. This was the first venue we ever visited and immediately fell in love with the it upon entering the Chapel. At Last by Etta James was playing and I got tears in my eyes. After our tour at the Piazza they rang the wedding bells from the venue’s tower and knew in that moment that we had to get married there! Our wedding will incorporate a few Romanian traditions, as my side of the family including myself is from Romania!

We can’t wait for our #bigfatromericanwedding !!

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is so green around this time, it was the perfect morning for an engagement session. We started around 10:45am and there was hardly anyone around.
From the couple ~
