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!

I’ve never cried at an engagement session before, until Allison and Johnny’s. But then again, I’ve never had clients cry at an engagement session before until Allison and Johnny. Thank you, both, for being present enough to feel that much. That’s more than I could ever hope for.

The love Allison and Johnny have, it’s beautiful. Like, make-your-friend-cry(AGAIN)-on-the-plane-home-from-your-engagement-session beautiful. Like thank-the-good-Lord-every-time-you-think-of-it beautiful. It’s that strong, I’ve-really-thought-this-through-and-I-mean-it love. It’s the I-want-to-take-care-of-you, admirable kind of love.

Johnny, you’re one of the kindest guys I’ve ever met — I’m thankful my friend has you and I’m so thankful you have her. Allison, I love being friends with you. It’s awesome because you know how to encourage me when I’m feeling fragile, you teach me (maybe multiple times) how to use SnapChat and I still can’t get over the privilege of being entrusted with your wedding photography (which I’m not gonna pretend isn’t mega-intimidating since you’re a crazy-talented photographer whose work I admire so much). Whatever, I love you guys and I’ll leave it at that.

Here some of my favorites from Allison and Johnny’s engagement session in beautiful, beautiful Bend, Oregon.
