Retro Pin-Up Engagement Session in New Braunfels

Ian & Nicole found me through a referral from one of my Michigan clients - small world! Nicole suggested a retro-themed shoot in their backyard, since Ian repairs vintage hot rods. It turned out wonderfully! Taking photographs in a place that is important to the couple (in this case, Ian & Nicole's home together) really makes the engagement session special.

Ian & Nicole were game to try any and all of my ideas ("Let's climb up into the treehouse!"). This is what Nicole had to say when she saw them:

I couldn’t stop staring at the pictures! I am lacking even in the correct words to put my feelings together. So impressive, gorgeous and amazing. You truly caught every detail and we had a blast.
We’re so excited for you shooting our wedding! It is great to have you capturing these moments for us. Thank you for being so awesome!!

Lalo & Sarah - Lifestyle Portraits - Cute Dogs and Playing Games

I feel extremely fortunate to have meet Lalo & Sarah - they are some of the most down to earth, friendliest people I know. I went to their house to capture a typical night in for the two of them - playing games, making drinks, petting dogs (Chester and the appropriately named Texas). It's all you could want in a lifestyle portrait session. Click to enlarge.

TBT: Leah & Johnmark - Chicago Lifestyle Engagement Photos

I travelled to Chicago to follow Leah & Johnmark around with a camera as they showed me their home and shared their story with me. These are two of the most beautiful souls I've ever met. They relationship is filled with baking bread and making music, so of course their photos were too. Click to enlarge.
