Love at White Rock Lake | Engagement Portraits from Burleson Texas

October 16, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

What is not to love about making engagement portraits for two people that love each other, display genuine emotion, are adventurous, and come prepared with amazing ideas for their session? Such was the case with Jordan and Curly. Thank you for trusting me as the photographer to turn your visions into a reality for celebrating your engagement.

Jordan had hopes of a casual lake session matching the theme of her wedding plans. Unfortunately, we are fresh out of lakes in Burleson. That's ok. With the client's time constraints from their weekend trip to Dallas, I knew we needed a location that was closer for them anyway. Dallas White Rock Lake provided exactly what we needed - water, access, and variety.

I put lots of thought in finding the perfect location for each of my clients. And it's nice sometimes to stray from the go-tos just as we did for Jordan and Curly's session. Come to think of it, it's always my adventurous engagement sessions that pull me off the beaten path, much like when I shot the Dallas skyline for another client.

I have way too many great pictures from the props and ideas my clients came prepared with to show you all of them, but I have to share this carry-me-away balloon idea Jordan was prepared for. Fun, adventurous, creative, what's not to love with this couple?

Regretfully, since I don't typically take on wedding work, engagement sessions are a bit of a rare occurrence for me. These sessions are typically gobbled up by wedding photographers. Is there as much motivation for a wedding photographer to create an extravagant engagement session for a client who has already booked them for their wedding? I dunno. But I can tell you, I simply love creating memories for people in love and enjoy working hard to find the best way to celebrate and showcase their engagement for their friends and family.
