Shannon & Ricky {Engaged!}

Mathis, Texas- a little town with a big heart! And for this pair of small town lovers it was the perfect backdrop to showcase their love story! We started at the beautiful Lake Corpus Christi State Park- which offers the gorgeous diverstity from stone “castle” pavillion to the pictuesque beachside. We spent the final time before sunset exploring the hidden treasures of Mathis’ downtown nostalgia- having a blast all the while!!  Enjoy and be inspired by Shannon & Ricky’s obvious and infectious love, set in the bold bright sunset of small town USA:)

Nothing will come between these two lawyers! -Well except maybe their opposing rival alma maters, but besides that they are perfect for eachother!!

Celebrating a late summer wedding these two wanted to capture the things that they love most- so we covered all the bases from the courthouse to the seaside! Enjoy this wonderful couple and all the fun we had…photo shoots make for an awesome date night! {Note to brides: always entice your groom with steak and drinks to follow a successful engagement shoot!!} Lol!

Brianna: Bridals

Ok so I  have been dying to share a glimpse of this session for awhile now! First of all, our location was the beautiful Fulton Mansion in Rockport, TX- a location I have been wanting to shoot forever but have never had the chance until now!   It actually wasn’t in our original plan, but a last minute swticheroo turned out to be the perfect setting for this romantic bridal shoot.

As for our bride, I have to admit, I was worried that Brianna had too much on her plate that day to be able to knock out amazing portraits at the very end of it all! She had already worked a full nursing shift, navigated the hair and makeup dramas and made it all the way to Rockport in time to catch the evening sun. Wow was I ever in for a surprise!! Brianna possesses the confidence and truly {RARE} gift of being able to naturally move like a professional model. And I am not kidding!! I was so impressed!! Confidence and awareness of body shapes and her wonderfully expressive eyes made for a dynamic shoot! Together we had a blast- I enjoyed the luxury of trying tons of creative poses and ideas with her, and she nailed them all. Absolutely breathtaking, and I think we both could say we had a blast!!

And for the record…Fulton Mansion is a new fave…I am hopeful to have many more trips to Rockport in the future…exquisite!!!
