Doug + Sarah, The Engagement Session
Doug and Sarah. Two very sweet adorable people who have fallen love after meeting through college. I actually have known Doug as a childhood neighbor and a fellow classmate since our days in our high school Latin Club. It was such a great surprise to see him and get to catch up and get to know his fiancee, Sarah. Our e-session started off at Old Red Museum in Dallas and as the day progressed we walked around the city grabbing photo opportunities from every location we could find.
Not even a few minutes of starting our session, we came across a segway tour group ready to photo bomb. We, however, welcomed them with open arms.
It took us a bit of time to get a photo alone in the JFK Memorial Plaza. A lot of people (even on a Sunday) had come to see it which is a challenge when you're trying to take a picture without anyone else in the photo. Truth be told, I had to edit this one because there was one person who didn't leave. I think it came out really nice - not to mention look at just how awesome the space is! It's such a big monument when you stand back and see it with people in the center. A true sense of scale!
This space is a little past the JFK plaza in a parking lot. However, I really liked the trees and the colorful wall of the building that I thought it would be nice to take photos with it.
Before you go further - the photo below is supposed to represent that Doug and Sarah came from different cities. Doug is from Dallas and Sarah is from Houston. I thought it would be cool to have the city signs against the graffiti wall. But I think the signs are actually hand signs from universities...
We kept walking down Main Street and found ourselves at a park called Belo Garden. They have a great space for kids to run through water fountains, an area to read or study, and a good place to lie down on a giant hill in the middle of the city.
Absolutely enjoyed this photo of them framed by the water!
Thank you so much to Doug and Sarah for putting up with my silly posing ideas and agreeing to do them without fail. Also, a personal thanks to them for giving me a reason to visit the little hot spots that make Dallas so great. I had a great time shooting these two lovebirds and I can't wait until March 2014 to photograph them when they tie the knot!
