As much as I love photographing a couple’s wedding day – with all the details, traditions, and intimate moments – shooting a couple’s engagement is very special for me. One of the first things a couple does when planning their wedding is to book an engagement shoot, so I get the honor of being a part of their journey from the very start.
I love hearing about how a couple met, how he/she proposed, and what they hope for on their wedding day. Seeing their eyes sparkle with hope, excitement, and romance brings me so much joy. It’s a privilege and one I don’t take lightly. This engagement shoot at Lost Pines Resort and Spa was no exception.
Ruth and Emmanuel were a dream to photograph. They chose to take their engagement photos at Lost Pines Resort and Spa in Cedar Creek, Texas. They were fun, silly, and very much in love. They were also stunning, so it was just easy to make them look good. My favorite moment was when they were skipping in the field and the candid joy on their faces could melt even the hardest of hearts. They made each other laugh the entire day and we had the best time!
They looked like they were dressed for the Oscars, or at least distinguished guests at a fancy gala. Emmanuel’s simple, but polished, white shirt and dress pants combination gave so much space for Ruth’s elegant gold dress to really pop! I was very impressed with how much Ruth was willing to do in her 4-inch heels – running, skipping, walking through grass, and dancing by the water at Lost Pines Resort and Spa.
I loved being a part of Ruth and Emmanuel’s special day at Lost Pines Resort and Spa. It’s been such a dream to capture love stories in the current season we are in. Despite everything that is going on in the world, love is still very much alive, and it was plain to see between Ruth and Emmanuel during this charming engagement shoot at Lost Pines Resort and Spa.
