One of the greatest benefits of travelling is the opportunity to encounter people and places you would have never met or seen if you had stayed in your comfort zone.
While we were in Texas in the summer, Preston and Jenna contacted us about capturing their engagement pictures. Of course, we were very excited. Then a question raised in our minds: where?! We love giving our couples the opportunity of experiencing new places – we believe this is one thing that can strengthen a relationship because it creates memories and stories that can be told for generations to come. We also really enjoy finding unique places that are not very well explored or known, and that’s what we did when we were faced with trying to find something different in a place that wasn’t too familiar!
After having a chat with our best mate “Google” we found this incredible place (that we sadly can’t share the name of, as the owner asked us not to for safety and privacy reasons!). Not very far from where we were staying, there was this unbelievable spot…seriously, we couldn’t believe how incredible it looked! The day before the arranged shoot, we sent an email to the owner, but didn’t really have high hopes as it was quite last minute. To our surprise, she got back to us with a positive answer within the hour! We may have used the “We’re visiting from England…” line…but hey, it was clearly meant to be!
It was such a great time with Preston and Jenna – we were so glad we got the chance to do their pictures in such a special place! These guys were so much fun to be around and are simply stunning together. Plus, as an added bonus, they brought their adorable dog Remy to the shoot – we were immediately in love! With the Texas sun setting slowly, we worked our way around the area and managed to snag some beautiful images of a gorgeous couple. We are so happy with the results and we really hope you enjoy them too.
