A Well-Planned Wildflower Engagement
When planning sessions or weddings of any kind, I always offer my help to couples and families in helping them prepare themselves. From recommendations on what to wear, to looking for the perfect location, I love to help in any way possible.
Not many people jump in front of a camera every day, or even more than their wedding day or engagement. As I have the blessing of capturing so many engagements and weddings, I love to offer advice as requested.
This couple took planning to the next level, and you can see how well it paid off in their session featured below. Kimberly decided to get her hair and makeup done for the session, but in a different style than she is doing for her wedding. I absolutely love how prepared and styled this couple was during their Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center engagement session.
When looking for a location for their session, we went through multiple different ideas. Once we came across pictures of work I have done at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in the past, the couple was immediately sold.
Here in Central Texas, the Spring is prime season for bluebonnets to bloom. By featuring the bluebonnets in the session, we displayed Texas in the most sophisticated way. I love how everything was in bloom for us, as it made such a great backdrop for our session. You can just tell how breathtaking the countryside of Austin gets in the spring and summer.
A Surprise Meeting
Not only was this couple an absolute pleasure via planning every detail of their session, but they were also fantastic to meet. Kimberly and Troy met in one of the most random places – 7/11! Kimberly would always visit 7/11 after dropping her son off at school to grab a coffee. Troy would visit that same 7/11 often, and once he caught site of Kimberly, he made it a routine.
After talking with her a few times while they were in the store together, Troy asked Kimberly out and they knew it was something that was going to last a lifetime from the start.
When I asked about their engagement and how he proposed, Troy told me the sweetest story. I could tell that he put a lot of time into thinking about how to make their proposal story romantic. He even told me that he thought that every guy should put a lot of effort into planning their proposal so that their future wife glows ear to ear when they tell it to anyone who asks.
Overall, this Wildflower engagement was an absolute dream, from the styling to getting to meet Kimberly and Troy. I am so excited to see them again in June for their wedding!
