Chris & Brandy :: Engaged!

We were totally surprised by Chris’s out-of-the-blue phone call. Chris & I (Christian typing here) worked together in a Chicago purchasing department years ago and we both went our separate ways about 7 or 8 years ago: Chris as a professional student (at least that’s how I like to rib him) and I went off to live in Australia and pursue random adventures and crazy life goals that are better attempted before settling down with a family. =)

So, Chris called because had was recently engaged and was looking for a wedding photographer to capture their big day! We had their date open, so we finalized the agreement and headed down to Texas to do their engagement session at the most impressive Gaylord Texan just North of Dallas. What an amazing place!

It was SO easy to get lost in the beautiful architecture and gardens. Hours passed before we realized it and I couldn’t narrow down my favorites to fewer than these fifteen — sorry! =)

Then we shuttled over to the Glass Cactus where the staff were awesome and accommodating to our crazy idea of shooting in their VIP area. =) We had some sweet skies and light going on outside, so we just HAD to make it happen!
