Nathan & Carol . Austin Engagement

Love is in the air!

There is always something inherently romantic about Texas sunsets. Better yet, this gorgeous lighting only appeared after a light rain, and I'm so glad Nathan and Carol trusted me to proceed with the session despite our fear of the rain. As soon as I hopped out the car,  my jaw dropped as I stared at the vast green field sprinkled with summer wildflowers and the lake, rippling in its ombre of light and navy blue. My heart felt so full and excited as I pranced around the fields and photographed the lovely couple. Despite the summer heat and itchiness from the grass and bugs, Nathan and Carol were such troopers, and they managed to do it so gracefully. Seriously, I can't give enough credit to my couples when they go above and beyond for their pictures.

This was an evening I'll remember for a long time. In between each shot, we shared so much joy and laughter, and I can't wait to experience those moments again when they get married in October! 


I knew I had to snag a shot of Nathan's cowboy boots when he told me his proposal story. These were the very same pair where he hid his ring before asking Carol for her hand in marriage! 

Golden years are passing by,
Happy, happy golden years,
Passing on the wings of time,
These happy golden years.
Call them back as they go by,
Sweet their memories are,
Oh, improve them as they fly, 
These happy golden years
