My darling Hollye — my sparkling, adventurous, beautiful friend — is marrying her French beau tomorrow.
I couldn’t be happier to celebrate these two and from the looks of the smiles all over their faces I’d venture to say they couldn’t be happier either.
What do you do when you need to shoot an engagement session in the height of Texas summer heat? You find a space built in the 1930s with plenty of window light and take the session indoors OF COURSE. I just finished editing Becca and John’s photos earlier this week and for some reason couldn’t wait a moment longer to get them on the blog. These two are so fun, super-chill and are also parents to an adorable baby boy named Mason so brace yourselves for some serious 9-month-old cuteness later on in this post. Being the sweet, incredibly thoughtful momma that she is, Becca actually made and gifted some pacifier clips for my little baby girl on the way and I just cannot wait to use them! How such wonderful brides and grooms find me I do not know, but I sure am thankful.
Enjoy some of my favorites from Becca and John’s Dallas lifestyle engagement session.
sidenote: I’m in love with Becca’s hummingbird tattoo that she got in honor of her grandmother, especially because every time I see a hummingbird I think of my grandmother too.
Thanks to Pouf for Becca’s lovely hair and make-up.
Hope you guys have a great move to Colorado — send some of the pretty mountain breeze our way, pretty please — and I cannot wait to meet back up with y’all for your Milagro Farms wedding next April!
I just like Alia and Ronnie a whole big bunch — I really don’t know any other way to say it. I love that Alia and I were able to bond over our mutual appreciation of Taylor Swift and that she gave me recommendations for cute puppy instagram accounts to follow. I love that Ronnie has such an easy-going, while at the same time distinctly confident, way about him. I love that these two laugh easily around each other and never second-guessed any instruction I gave them during the shoot. Yep, I like these two a whole big bunch.
We started out nice and easy at their alma mater, SMU, which also happens to be the place they met. And then we kicked things up a notch at the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge and the resulting photos we got there make me wiggle my eyebrows in satisfaction.
Alia and Ronnie, these outfit choices are ON POINT.
We were having so much fun together that even the sun going down didn’t stop us. Alia and Ronnie, I am SO EXCITED to meet back up with y’all next month for wedding festivities, you have no idea.
When you’re a florist it should be no surprise for you to show up at your engagement session with not one but two floral crowns + your adorable bulldog complete with her own wreath to wear that you made yourself. Holly did just that (**insert photographer googly eyes here**) and I had so much fun with her, John and their lil pup Gertie Grace during their Fort Worth engagement session last fall. And SPEAKING OF FUN, I have been counting down the days to their Fort Worth Zoo wedding this Saturday. Y’all, a wedding at the ZOO! From everything I know about Holly, John, their wedding planner/designer and their vendor line-up I can say with assurance that it’s gonna be epic.
Holly and John, looking forward to meeting up with you two again real, real soon!
p.s. hair and make-up by the always amazing Beauty & the Blush. Rayven can seriously do no wrong in my book — hire her :))
