Being an engagement and wedding photographer, I meet a lot of cute couples (obviously). They’re all cute, they’re all in love… but with Chris and Ashton, I could tell within five minutes of our meeting that they are also best friends. They put a lot of thought into planning for their session, and it made the whole experience that much better!
“I saw this dress on the mannequin,” Ashton told me as we walked through downtown Houston’s Hermann Park, “and when I went into the store they didn’t have any more in that color, so I told the clerk to get me the one from the window, and it was my size!”
Two big aspects about engagement shoots that often get overlooked are locations and outfits. Put some thought into these ahead of time, make sure they reflect who you are as a couple, and I guarantee you will have more fun and be more satisfied with your photos.
We’re excited for Chris and Ashton’s Houston wedding this summer!
