The Cotton Mill in McKinney is such a historic and beautiful venue to take wedding, engagement, or even family photos. So when Ethan and Dimi wanted to do their engagement pictures at the McKinney Cotton Mill, I was thrilled! It is a photographers dream! It will be the same location as their wedding, so to have these photos taken there was so much fun! The light, the shadows, the history, and the authenticity of the Cotton Mill is absolutely incredible! I had so much fun walking around with them for these photos. With so many ways to take the session creatively, it was a dream for a photographer. As a wedding photographer, the time after a wedding can often feel rushed. So to have the time at the Cotton Mill to not feel that pressure of guests waiting allowed us to truly capture some amazing shots! And it also got us all excited for their McKinney Cotton Mill Wedding! Here are a few from their beautiful session.
Brennan and Mercedes know how to make rustic romantic! They had their engagement shoot in the back woods of Mckinney. They were later married at Rustic Grace Estate in Van Alstyne on October the 8th. If you’re looking for romance complete with red barn, lush fields, and two sights set on each other, this cute couple captured it!
Scott and Amanda wanted their engagement session at Erwin Park in Mckinney – somewhere with trees and natural beauty. What I didn’t know, was that Scott had plans to start the session off with playing a little joke on his fiancée. He jumped out of the truck wearing shorts shorts, a headband, and well…you just have to see it. He then got back in the truck for a quick wardrobe change and came out in fiancee approved attire. We killed some mosquitoes as we walked around Erwin Park taking photos wherever our stroll took us. At the end of the session I put my camera I my bag and it literally started to rain. Perfect timing! Trying to beat the crazy Texas weather is never fun, but it is just part of being a photographer in Dallas in the spring.
