Dallas Arboretum Pumpkin Patch Engagements

The Dallas Arboretum is always a beautiful location for any type of photography, which is why Tracey and Caleb chose it for their engagement session. This is a couple/family with such a beautiful story of restoration. A couple who broke up after their daughter was born, but life had bigger and better plans. Years later after being apart, they got back together and now these two are getting married! This is just incredible! There is just something extra special about a story like this. It gives you hope that there is always something to fight for. Always a reason to keep going. And the possibility of a beautiful story in the end! I have so much respect for these two and the resilience to heal a broken relationship and form it into something better! 

Here is a little preview of their Dallas Arboretum engagements in the fall.

A Mckinney Engagement Session in a vineyard

I met these two at the Chapel Creek Ranch open house last year just before everyone’s pipes and butts froze. And I am sure glad we fit it in! They are getting married at Chapel Creek Ranch in the fall, so we were able to get their engagement session this summer so they could have save the dates sent out to friends and family. Summer sessions in texas are almost always in the morning…it is the only way to survive the heat and still look good. No one wants engagement photos dripping in sweat! 

We took their engagement photos at Myers Park in McKinney, and had a blast!  Walking around and just talking about life is one thing I love about my job. Each couple has a story I want to hear, and it was great to get to know them and hear theirs! 

It isn’t long until they get married…so get ready folks! You will see these two again…just dressed a little nicer.

An engagment session before their Chandlers Garden Wedding

Fred and Michele are getting married at Chandler’s Gardens. Before their wedding, they wanted to have an engagement session so they could send announcements and save the dates out. On top of that, they just wanted to capture this sweet season of life before their wedding!
We went to a park in McKinney (Erwin park) to take photos. We were luck to get a cloudy morning to keep the temperatures a little cooler than is usual in Mckinney in the summer. Here is a preview of their session. Chandler’s Gardens will be waiting for these two to start their marriage there!
