Chris and Shannon started their engagement session at Perla’s on South Congress, the setting of their official first date. They toasted over oysters and from there, we were golden. I’m so excited to be traveling to Big Bend this weekend to capture their wedding. They are such a fun couple to be around; so passionate about each other and life that it is contagious!
Two minutes before I met Tracy and Molly for the first time, I made eye contact with Connie Britton aka Tami Taylor ala Friday Night Lights. I was walking through the beautiful grounds of the Hotel Saint Cecilia, making my way toward my lovely couple, when I was completely star struck by one of my favorite television characters of all time. Less than one second after saying, HI I’M LEAH to Molly, I told her that Tami Taylor was a few feet away and that she’d have to excuse my behavior. Luckily, Tracy and Molly were MID watching Friday Night Lights so we immediately bonded over our love and spent the next lump of time all geeking out together.
Anyway, I digress. It was a moment, though. Tracy and Molly are my kind of couple. I don’t think that I stopped laughing the entire time we were together. Everything was so laid back, so easy, so..natural. They had traveled in from LA to take the photographs so we decided to stick around the gorgeous Hotel Saint Cecilia and nearby area for their session. Can not wait to see them again for their October wedding!
Jamie goes with the flow. On the morning of her bridals, the day called for rain. Like, pretty constant rain with super grey skies. Jamie was driving in from Dallas when I caught her on the phone and she told me that we’d just see what happens. Color me impressed because I’m just going to say, there aren’t too many brides out there who care to brave the weather while their hair is all done up and they’ve got their wedding dress on. So, later in the day, I drove (in the stormy weather with rain drops falling) to meet up with Jamie on South Congress. Literally, as soon as I parked, it stopped raining. The skies were grey to the extreme but Jamie and I had a blast with a light breeze in the air.
I love Jamie’s carefree personality and her ability to laugh things off and go with the flow. It’s pretty darn impressive!
Carly and Travis are getting married in January and I am SOO excited to kick off my 2012 weddings with this wonderful couple!
