This was one of my favorite days. I was so excited when George reached out about doing their engagement photos here in Texas. It was even more special because he, Stephanie, and their friends all flew in from Chicago for vacation so it worked out perfectly! When Stephanie and George told me that they wanted to find scenery that was different from the Chicago skyline, Enchanted Rock State Park was the first idea that came into my mind! From open fields to the vast mountain range, the park encompassed everything that they were looking for!
Texas winters are very fickle so we weren't sure what the weather would be like. It had been raining all week, and even the morning of our shoot was a bit damp and cold. But somehow, as we drove to the park, it started getting warmer and eventually the sun came out! It was such a joy photographing these two. They have such a sweet and relaxing energy around them. In between shooting, I'd see them giggle and goof off as if no one else was watching. Even the way they look at each other warms my heart. I started off the session with some portraits in their casual attire, but deep down, I was excitedly waiting to photograph Stephanie in her red dress. When we were planning this session, I had suggested that she'd be daring with her dress, especially for such a majestic setting such as the Texas mountains, and boy, did she surprise me! It was a total bonus that there was a light breeze throughout the afternoon, and the lighting was magical in the golden fields. I really couldn't have asked for a better couple to work with, and I'm excited to finally share these frames with everyone!
Stephanie and George, thank you with all my heart for this amazing opportunity. Sending you lots of love and care for your wedding in Chicago!
