Congratulations to Brenna and Alec on their engagement! The two of them are currently nested in Oklahoma, but traveled down to Dallas, TX for their engagement shoot.
She used to compete with the Cheer Athletics Wildcats, and was excited to be back in the Dallas area. We started out in Deep Ellum, full of weathered brick and colorful graffiti murals. They brought a bunch of outfits to choose from- I always explain to couples that it's better to have too many options than wish you had brought something after it is too late. Brenna and Alec did great!
Engagement session are so much fun, and such a great time for the couple to get a feel for being in front of the camera. As they quickly realized, for a lot of the shots it's like I wasn't even there.
I think that engagement sessions are so great that I shoot them free of charge for every couple who books their wedding with me. It gets them excited, gets their friends excited, and is just an overall great experience. Along with the session I also include a big 16x20 print for them to display at the reception.
