Kate + Tony | Texas A&M University

We are SO thrilled to have Kate and Tony’s engagement session be featured on our blog today! We this sweet couple for the first time at Melissa + Gabriel’s Moore Ranch wedding a little over a year ago. Even though I didn’t know Kate that well, she was definitely hard to forget. I remember her being very cheery and happy during Melissa’s wedding (I mean, how can you not be happy for your best friend who is getting married?!). So let’s fast forward to this year - we were so delighted when we got that awesome phone call where Tony + Kate asked us to be their wedding photographers!!

Lots of sunshine and hugs pretty much sums up this wonderful day. Their engagements were shot on the beautiful grounds of Texas A&M University (can I get a WHOOP, please?). Some places she mentioned that were very special to them were The Century Tree and Military Walk… but the one spot that Kate definitely wanted to go to was their old dorm, Lechner Hall. I thought it was a neat idea because this is where Kate + Tony FIRST met while attending classes at Texas A&M ❤

Kate and Tony will be having their Spring wedding at Broken Arrow Ranch College Station, TX this upcoming May - we can’t wait!

Erica + Mike | George Bush Library

The season of engagement sessions continues and we are just loooving it. One of my favorite parts of summer (or what’s left of it!) definitely has to be the beautiful light that we get during this time of year. I’m just trying to enjoy those rays before they’re completely gone!

We loved the energy between Erica and Mike’s engagement session. The Barbara Bush Rose Garden behind The George Bush Library has always been one of our top spots in College Station, TX since forever ago. We dig the romantic, classy vibes that we get to experience here.

So excited for these two to tie the knot in October! They will be having their beautiful wedding in Historic Downtown Bryan at Downtown 202!

Kivani, Melissa & Swapna | Galveston, TX

Okay, let me just say one thing: I LOVE FRIEND GROUP PORTRAIT SESSIONS! I had so much fun capturing sweet moments between these wonderful ladies last week. Even though it was just a little warm out in Galveston (who am I kidding, it felt like it was 110° out there) the girls all had a great time walking around, filling me in on their past friend adventures, and talking about all the cool spots they would hit up on the island. It was pretty much the girl time that I needed!! We met up at Mod Coffeehouse for some caffeine, moved over to Taquilo’s for some refreshing tequila shots, and continued our journey to UTMB to photograph them in front of Old Red. We finished the night with delicious burgers in a popular spot called… well, The Spot located right off of Seawall!

I met Melissa back in 2017 when she was planning out her fiesta-themed wedding (click here to see!) back in College Station, TX. Ever since then, we have been bonding more and more ever since we found out we were both cat ladies… but we’ll leave that story for another time! I met Kivani and Swapna for the first time at Melissa’s wedding last year and thought they were sweet and kind. Who knew I would be photographing all three of them a year later in a very important time of their lives? :)

Kivani, Melissa, and Swapna graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch last Friday in Galveston, TX, receiving their Masters in Occupational Therapy. Sending positive vibes and wishing them the best (especially this week!) on their certification exams! I am really excited to see these bright young ladies achieve all of their goals.

Cameron + Price | Peach Creek Ranch

One of the most interesting things from Price and Cameron’s love story: they actually grew up on the same street a few blocks from each other back in their home-state of Colorado! They had no idea they would cross paths years later - seriously, who would have thought that these two incredibly sweet people would be getting married years later in Texas (WHOOP!)? The very first time they met was when they both started attending school at Texas A&M and well… you know the rest!

Cameron and Price had a beautiful wedding day at Peach Creek Ranch in College Station, TX. The bright blue skies overlooking the lake for their outdoor ceremony made everything absolutely gorgeous. Even with the warm weather (y’all, it was 95 degrees that day!) it was a perfect day from beginning to end.

Their beyond-adorable dog, Molly, plays a big part in their lives. She made appearances in both their engagement session and for Cameron’s bridals (we promise to post our favorites from her bridal session soon). We loooove it when our couples bring their little fur babies to portrait sessions!! As pet owners ourselves, getting to capture this unique bond (especially on their very own wedding day!) is so rewarding and we’re so thankful for every chance we get to do it.

Congratulations to you both, we wish you all the best!
