blissfully engaged, Jolene and Jim

Meet Jolene and Jim.

This was a particularly special shoot because Jolene was close childhood friends with my mom and uncle growing up. I had never met Jolene before she inquired about pictures, but I had heard stories!

I couldn’t have been more pleased with how Jim and Jolene interacted together — Jim was so, soooo tender┬áto Jolene and Jolene was so obviously happy to be around Jim. It made my heart glad to see my mother’s childhood friend so genuinely blissfully engaged.

Jolene told me we definitely needed to get a shot of Jim kissing her hand, because that’s his signature thing. I just thought that was the. most. presh-uhhhhhhhhs. thing.

We finished up at the fountains with this lovely light.

Then it was off to downtown McKinney and after a quick outfit change (wink, wink, Jolene) we continued with the last bit of the session.

Jolene told me she had stayed up until the wee hours of the morning before the shoot making this posterboard. Can anyone name the movie quote?

It’s Jolene’s favorite quote from her favorite romantic comedy: “To me you are perfect and my wasted heart will love you until you look like this . . . (mummy pictured)”

The building Jim and Jolene are standing in front of is their favorite pub in downtown McKinney. We stopped inside for a few atmospheric pub shots to end the shoot.

I’m terribly disappointed I wasn’t available to shoot your September wedding, Jolene and Jim. But I consider it an honor to be able to document this portion of the engagement leading up to it. I wish you two the very best and all happiness!
