There’s something about traveling that inspires, refreshes and renews us creatively and artistically. California is beautiful, the scenery is endless. But when the opportunity arose to photograph in Dallas, Texas for Yuna and Michael’s Engagement Session, we were beyond excited for what we would be able to discover and capture. I was welcomed in to Dallas with 85 degree weather, and Yuna and Michael picked me up from the airport with warm smiles and wide open arms. From there, we enjoyed a delicious lunch and I discovered Affogato for the first time (Gelato + Espresso!)… Are you kidding me!? How had I never heard of this delicacy before? It was coffee perfection! After our delightful treat, we ventured off to White Rock Lake where, amidst the warm breeze and smooth waves in the distance, the true delight began. Yuna + Michael + such beautiful scenery as a backdrop – now THAT was better than any sweet treat on the planet. Their beautiful Love shined, shined, shined – and I was honored to capture each frame!
From there we discovered the beautifully blossomed Dallas Arboretum, where endless tulips and flowers of every kind began springing up, just in time for our Session! With time still left to spare, while at another coffee shop (thankfully, we all love coffee!), we researched and stumbled upon a nearby ranch that we wanted to visit and conquer. The results of every location and panorama we discovered far exceeded our every expectation. Not to mention, having such a beautiful, kind, and fun-loving couple to drive around Dallas with – it was simply an experience I will never forget!! I am so thankful for these two and eagerly anticipate capturing their I DO’s in May!
All the images from this perfect Engagement Session were edited using the new Redwood Presets from one of our Workshop sponsors, Red Leaf Boutique. A special “Thank You” to their incredible team for helping bring these photographs to life with their beautiful Presets that we just love!
