Sierra and Davis had their Fort Worth Engagement session out at Eagle Mountain Park on the most perfect day! Even with a bunch of wind, and it being a little bit chilly, these two were so full of joy! Not to mention we got the most incredible sunset at the end of their session. I had the best time capturing these images for Sierra and Davis! We had to reschedule their original date because it was only twenty degrees outside that day and I am so glad that we did. I would love for every session to have backlighting like this.
Sierra and Davis
Sierra and Davis got engaged while on vacation in Gulf Shores, Alabama in August of 2020! Davis proposed to Sierra with a family heirloom ring, which he had custom fit just for her. Those kind of special details melt my heart! These two are high school sweethearts, the ultimate love story! Sierra loves her cats, playing the piano, and spending quality time watching movies at home with Davis. Davis is passionate about cars and loves working out. Their chemistry is so sweet and I just adore them together!
When talking about what their vision for their engagement session was, Sierra just knew that she wanted it to be romantic! Simple sunset vibes at this gorgeous park in Fort Worth fit their personalities so well. Eagle Mountain Park is a favorite location of mine because it has so many unique looking backgrounds all in one location! Eagle Mountain Park also seems to always get the best lighting at sunset time year round which is every photographers dream!
Engagement outfit choices
I have to give these two props for picking such great outfits for their Fort Worth engagement session! Neutrals with lots of texture are always a good fit for an outdoor session. I especially loved their second look for its colors and subtle yet striking patterns. I always recommend a casual oufit and a formal outfit for these sessions to have nice variety. Kudos to Sierra and Davis for bringing their style and rocking it!
I’m so thrilled to finally share this engagement session for more than one reason. One, I met Desiree back in middle school and it’s the most fun getting to witness people you’ve known since your awkward teenage years, majorly glow up and get engaged. I mean yeah, it makes me feel hella old but it’s still pretty awesome. Especially when they hire you to shoot their wedding (insert celebration emoji here)!! Two, it’s in a bowling alley y’all. Need I say more?
Desiree and Chris’ love story began with a Facebook poke about a decade ago. Friends first and then with a graduation from the friend zone in 2015, they were official. They love to travel, hence the romantic proposal in Rome, breweries, and true crime (YES). I would be lying if I said I hadn’t been following their sweet, adorable relationship all over social media.
For their engagement session, I knew it wouldn’t be your regular outdoorsy shoot. Not for these two. So we headed down to Dallas for an early morning session at Bowlounge. The super eclectic bowling alley a hop, skip, and a jump away from downtown. The venue was super accommodating and even let us come in an hour before they opened just so we could have a little fun. Shout out to Kelsey the events manager!
We had a blast that morning and avoided some chilly weather. Here are a few of my favorite shots from Desiree and Chris’ engagement session.
Here in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex we have had almost nonstop rain lately. Good for the greenery, bad for photographers who like to shoot in the yummy outdoor sunlight. Funny thing is, it was consistently on the weekend. Like the weather knew that’s when all photographers are the busiest. Thanks Mother Nature!
So when the rain cleared up, it was finally time to shoot John and Carolyn’s engagement session. The session went perfectly and I think I will require everyone to wear sequins because OMG SO GORGEOUS!
I cannot wait for their wedding at the Marty Leonard Chapel later this month! That venue is on my photographers bucket list and I’m over the moon about the opportunity to shoot there.
Here are some of my favorite shots from John and Carolyn’s beautiful sunset engagement session in Flower Mound, Texas.
Mr. and Mrs. Walker finally said their vows this weekend in a beautiful, intimate ceremony at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden in Dallas, Tx. Even though it rained 90% of the day, as soon as Samantha saw Stephen at the end of that isle nothing else mattered. Her words exactly.
Now that the wedding is over, I can finally share this gorgeous bridal session I shot with Samantha and her two girls, Kaylee and Teagan, last month at the same venue.
Here’s are a few of my favorite photos from the new Mrs. Walker’s bridal session. Stay tuned for the wedding blog in a few weeks!
Fun Fact: Did you know I was born on a pretty lucky day? Saint Patrick’s Day! So I’m basically a lucky charm you guys. Look it up. Science. Hahahaha!
Kaylee and Patrick are getting married just ONE day before my birthday next year at the gorgeous Cross Creek Ranch in Parker, Tx. How lucky am I to be shooting it for them?! Judging by this amazing engagement session (they were so fantastic), it’s going to be a beautiful wedding with two very in love people.
It was so hard to narrow down, but here are some of my favorite moments from their engagement session.
It was a windy Sunday morning in January at the gorgeous McKinney Cotton Mill and I was sitting in my car enjoying my breakfast. A Lara Bar and bottle of water. Don’t judge, it was 8am and I’m pretty sure stoves don’t work before 8am.
Sitting in front of the beautiful building was a little daunting and exciting. So many possibilities!
Alexis and Edric arrived not too long after I did and we went on a little tour with the grounds man. This amazing venue hosts weddings and parties and even some pretty neat office space. I have to admit, I was a little jealous of the accommodations! The two engaged love birds seemed to love it as much as I did and we got started with the engagement session.
Alexis first contacted me last fall and it wasn’t long after that, that we got together with her fiancé, Edric, to discuss their October wedding. Still a year away, I could tell right away that the future Mrs. Ayala was just as organized as I am. Needless to say the meeting went fantastic and I will be shooting their beautiful wedding later this year.
Back to The Cotton Mill, well…it was gorgeous and everything my little photographer heart could have imagined it to be. Not to mention I had an adorable couple that made my job ridiculously easy.
