Spring dreams are made of these.

Brace yourselves, because this is a pretty long blogpost for an engagement session but I just cannot help myself. Together Meri Sue and Matt share an incredibly vivacious energy, as if just being near the other compels them to be more excited about life. I like that about them.

We met up in Dallas at Crooked Tree Coffee House — a coffee shop they stumbled upon on their first dating anniversary – on a wintery afternoon for their engagements.

The second half of their session was also a nod to their first dating anniversary, when they hopped on one of the Dallas trolleys to see where it would take them.

The only problem we had was that we could not, for the life of us, get on a trolley. We must have gone to three different stops but no trolley came.

We were actually in the process of surrendering our hopes of getting any trolley photos when we saw flashing police lights at the end of the street we were facing, and those red and blue lights were hitting a broken down trolley in the middle of an intersection (hence the trolley not making it to any of our previous stops). I’ll be honest, I was highly doubtful that we’d be allowed onto the trolley while it waited for electricity to get it running again but good ‘ole Matt asked the conductor and he so graciously obliged to let us on the empty, stationary trolley. We really could not have planned the circumstances to have worked out better than they did.

We may have only had eight or so minutes in that trolley but Meri Sue and Matt WORKED it in the few minutes we had, and I’m so happy with the result.

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow for the grand, enjoyable and fortuitous afternoon I was able to spend with Meri Sue and Matt. I’m so thankful y’all chose me to document such a treasured season in your lives.

Cheers to Jen and Stephen — a couple whose awesome personalities and upcoming wedding makes me really, really excited about Spring 2014.

We started their engagement session at one of the oldest homes in Denton – Oak Street Drafthouse.

Jen and Stephen, I have already had such a FUN time working with y’all in your engagements which makes me me look all the more towards your wedding this March.

Also, many thank you’s to Oak Street Drafthouse management for letting us use their lovely facilities as one of our session backdrops!

This is one of my couple’s that in working with them I am reminded how much more rewarding it is to work with one couple who trusts me and my work wholeheartedly, than to work with ten couples who might just be looking for a photographer. It has been so sweet to work with y’all already, Cathyrn and Brian, and we’re only just beginning!
