To all of the recently engaged couples – CONGRATS!!! Max and I got engaged on Christmas Eve surrounded by a room full of my family members and it made this magical time of year all the more special for us… and I am so excited that you’ll get to have these amazing memories come flooding back to you each time the holidays roll around too!

I hope you’re taking time to soak in the feeling of being engaged to the one person in this world who fits into you like a puzzle piece – filling in the empty spaces and completing the picture.

Engagements – Gina & Randy

Y’all… I am so excited about this!! My best friend recently got engaged, and I was so lucky to get to take their engagement photos. Weather had us sending up prayers and crossing all our fingers & toes in the hopes that we’d be able to get their photos in before I needed to drive back up to Nacogdoches. Gina is such a sweet person – one who gives so freely to others and is loyal beyond words, and she deserves the best… and thank goodness the weather gave her just that! We had a great amount of time without a drop of rain.

Before we headed off into Kingwood, we had to get a few shots with their “daughters” – and they were such good dogs!! Definitely earned those treats. GinaRandy-4_WEB

Randy & Gina have been together for years, and I feel like we have all grown up together. I have seen their relationship last through years spent 9 hours apart, through new jobs, a new house, and so many other things… They’ve come through them all stronger & more in love than they were before. And I know these two are just meant for one another. GinaRandy-6_WEB
