I sure love when it is easy to see how couples love being together, especially when that comes through my lens. It’s just a testament to the love they have for one another and how they are at ease in each other’s presence. These two were exactly like that. We had never met before but that didn’t hinder them from being totally natural in front of my camera. It was a gorgeous fall day in Dallas and the leaves left me with my jaw on the ground. I had scouted out some good spots before getting started and so when I met up with Lindsey and Matthew, I told them to get excited because the colors of fall were going to make a beautiful backdrop for their session. We started out in Lakeside Park, a spot close to my heart (the park where I got engaged) and then we ventured to White Rock Lake for some sunset photos. I gave them my usual spiel…be yourselves in front of my camera and you will get photos that truly reflect you all as a couple. Sometime this takes a while for couples to figure out but for these two, they rocked it from the beginning. We laughed a lot and just enjoyed documenting this sweet season of life for them.
What I especially loved about these two was their willingness to be a little adventurous. I had found the coolest boulder off the beaten path that just happened to be on a steep hill…oh yeah and at the edge of a cliff overlooking the creek. Now, before you think I’m totally crazy, it wasn’t THAT dangerous! But if you could have seen the behind the scenes you would have probably laughed. Both Lindsey and I were in heeled boots so Matthew had his work cut out for him. At one point I was sitting/kneeling as I took their photos and almost bit it. Yep, you gotta do what you gotta do. These two just rolled with it which let’s just say, is my absolute favorite. Clients who willingly embrace my crazy. I think the shots were worth it.
They are planning a destination wedding but wanted some Dallas engagement photos and I was so happy that I got to be the one who got to take them. Lindsey and Matthew, you all a joy to work with and I can’t wait to see how your love story continues to unfold. I hope you will always be willing to take risks with one another, even riskier than that boulder on a cliff.
Enjoy some of my favs from their Dallas engagement session!
