Kate & Robert met me in Stephenville last week for their engagement session. I’ve shot a few engagement sessions lately, and have really enjoyed getting to know these fun couples, kinda makes me sad I can’t be a part of the whole journey with them photographing their wedding, too. But I made a decision a while back to focus on my family and the things we love to do here at the ranch that involve the livestock we love. There ‘s no way I could be a good photographer and mother & wife with all that on my plate. I am so grateful for the couples who have chosen me to take their engagement photos, it really means a lot. Kate works in the office at Downunder Horsemanship for Clinton Anderson, and Robert farms for a living. What a precious couple! Here are a few of my favorites, then click here for the link to their slide show to music!
Before this session ever happened, it was planned by the visions of this fun couple Melissa & Richard. Richard worked as a vet tech at the clinic with my sister Lauren in Bandera before she moved back here. He’s a cattleman, and she’s a horsewoman. One loves Chevys the other loves Fords. Apparently opposites do attract! As we were rushing around trying to get all the images done they had envisioned, of course we got some unexpected shots that turned out really cool, too. These are some of my favorites, but you have to check out their slide show to music here!
Tonya & Eric met me here at the ranch for their engagement session last week. They were so much fun to work with- love their horses & are big Rangers fans! Here are a few of my favorites, and then you can click here to see their session slide show to music!
You might remember the two sessions I posted earlier this spring of Audrey and Tucker- well, Colton is yet another senior that we have come to know and love over the last few years of hauling heifers to the major Jr Heifer shows. And just like the kids, we have become great friends with their family, too. Colton has from day one been Carson’s main mentor and idol. Even though there may not have been tons of verbal one on one coaching, he learned so much from Colton just by watching his every move. From hauling, to setup at shows, to showmanship, this young man is very serious about his cattle and treats them almost better than a signifcant other. And speaking of, Holly was around for the session, so of course we got some cute shots of them together. Since there is a promise ring on her finger, I would imagine this is only the beginning for this young couple. While editing, all I could do was smile at all the funny pics of the two of them, they definitely bring out the best in each other. Thank you Colton for being such an incredible role model for Carson, and Holly for taking Henley under your wing at all the shows so she would have a buddy. Love you both and the rest of the family! Here are a few of my favorites, but you must click here to see the rest of the slide show to music- too many fun shots to miss!!!
Ashlyn and her sweet family have been dear friends for many yeras now. As you know, I DO NOT DO WEDDINGS, but I was somehow convinced to show up on their beautiful day with a camera I wanted to share with you the gorgeous images taken before sunset AFTER their cremony- pure love, happiness, and excitement for the future cannot be staged… this is reall stuff, folks. My your marriage be blessed with happiness and longevity- love you all!
