You know those people who are almost shockingly warm, personable and all-around wonderful? Yeah, those people are Jamie and Ben.

Go ahead and take ALL THE POSITIVE WORDS IN THE WORLD and that just about describes Jamie and Ben.

From our very first meeting over coffee (when they were like, “Oh, let us come to you!” and then WOULDN’T LET ME BUY MY OWN COFFEE AT MY OWN BUSINESS MEETING??) I’ve been floored by their kindness and with every interaction since then have understood more and more how very privileged I am to be the photographer they chose to document their engagement and wedding.

And then Jamie changed into this adorable lace romper and I just about died.

These two are so effortlessly awesome and the absolute nicest people to be around and I have been actively looking forward to their three-day August wedding ALL YEAR LONG.

Funny story, I actually first sat down to meet with Misbah and Ali about shooting their wedding two days before my daughter was born (WORTH IT, THOUGH). I can still remember Ali’s aghast face when I told him I was only a few days out from my due date and he genuinely was like, “WE COULD HAVE WAITED TO MEET!!” He was so immediately concerned about me, because he’s just that kind. And Misbah I’ve adored since I photographed her sister’s wedding almost three years back because this girl is PURE SUNSHINE CONCENTRATE.

Nine years of that same kindness and that same sunshine have already been poured into their relationship so it’s no wonder these two had so much to smile about at their Deep Ellum engagement session back in March.

All I really want from my couples at their engagement session is for them to genuinely enjoy spending that time together. It’s important to me that this session not be a show or a series of poses but for it to be

you + your most favorite person

 with space for y’all to remember how much you very much would like to spend the entire rest of your lives side by side.

I had a bride text me after her engagement shoot last week that the time we were shooting felt like a stress reliever in the midst of wedding planning and I was like, “YES. THAT’S WHAT I WANT FOR YOU.”

Emma and Collin, y’all are so good at enjoying each other. Way to go, you guys. WAY TO GO.

You guys, I’m obsessed with Rachel and Dan’s engagement session. We met up one Sunday in April and went all over South Congress before heading over to their go-to dive bar and ended up splashing around in Bull Creek. Something I love about these two is that they DON’T STOP MOVING. Like, ever. As someone who will always choose photographing motion and real interactions over a pose here and a pose there let’s just say having these two in front of my camera had me like a kid in a candy store — we didn’t stop shooting until the sun was down.

It just seems like you should have a good time when you’re with the person you’re going to marry and let me tell you Rachel and Dan are nonstop smiles together — kind of like me when I look at these photos from their Austin engagement session. Enjoy!
