Meet Brenna and Josef.

I will give one of my blog readers 10 points and four gold stars worth of blog-stalker-awesomeness if anyone (who doesn’t already know Brenna or Josef) can name under what circumstances Brenna has previously been on the blog (in three separate posts, I do believe).

We started the engagement shoot at Recycled.


Because Brenna and Josef’s favorite thing to do together is read. Specifically Josef. Specifically aloud. Specifically to Brenna.

When they’re driving, when they’re cooking, when they’ve got nothing else going on — Josef reads aloud to Brenna. Now tell me that isn’t the most precious thing you’ve ever heard?

They’ve been together since high school. Sure, there was time apart here and there in the span of years from then until now. But they always came back to each other.

And now, with a wedding planned for next September, they’re back together to stay.

Next Brenna and Josef wanted some pictures with the courthouse to speak to their born-and-raised Dentonite heritage.

I love this. I just really do.

Next we spent a bit of time on some railroad tracks.

Why? Because Brenna and Josef do a lot of traveling. Specifically to each other. Specifically because Josef lives and works in Utah and Brenna in Texas.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, was where the magic first began.

I just love these above two images. Love.

I like that we end this post where this relationship started.

That’s nice. Really nice.

Meet Renee, Caleb and their dog, Chanel.

 And yes, Caleb consented to having a dog named “Chanel,” much to Renee’s delight.

After all, this is the same man whose first sighting with Renee was at the spa where she used to work — he was coming in for a facial.

True love really can spark anywhere.

(Your skin looks great, by the way, Caleb.)

We started out in Renee and  Caleb’s new neighborhood, where they had just recently bought a home together.

After snagging some shots with their dear Chanel, we headed to the Denton square. Caleb and Renee both spent most of their growing up years in Denton, but once they started dating they realized they could both trace their grandfathers back to the same town in Ohio. Connections are fun.

After we had taken a few shots in front of this empty store-front Caleb looked up at me real confused and rather skeptical. “Does this look prettier in pictures?” he asked.

We’ll let y’all be the judge . . .

You two do make a picnic table look good, that’s for sure.

As comedic as Caleb liked to play things (above), I was rather impressed to see how convincing his more serious side was (below).

Oh, cut it out, you two.

Renee, you are just fabulous.

Renee and Caleb, y’all are great together.

In front of an abandoned store-front.

On a picnic table.

In an alley.

Even on a loading dock.

Just, plain great together.

That’s my stamp of approval, anyway.

I’m excited for their September wedding at The (ever-lovely) Milestone, coming up in the next few months!
