Happiest of Tuesday’s, guys! I’m currently in Houston waiting to shoot UTSA Men’s Basketball take on Oregon State at the Toyota Center – which is really cool. I’ll officially be marking a must off the bucket list by shooting at an official NBA arena! Not too bad of a way to lead up to Christmas, if I do say so myself.
Today’s post isn’t about basketball, though. Today, I’m bringing you guys one of the most important shoots that I ever got to be a part of. Shelby is one of my best friends – she’s intelligent, looks out for the people she cares about, and has this way of looking at the world that I hope more people will embrace one day. So – when her then boyfriend approached me to shoot their SURPRISE engagement, I knew I needed to be a part of it.
We spent a few weeks planning this whole shindig down to the way we were going to set Shelby up and have Chase surprise her. When it came down to it, I think it went better than we could have ever thought out or planned. As Shelby turned around and saw Chase on one knee, I suddenly understood why I do this job. Her most genuine reaction was something that I’m so very proud to have gotten to catch and share with you guys. For the rest of time, Shelby can look back and see just how exciting it was to say yes to forever with the love of her life.
As you go through these, I hope you enjoy the candid nature of the whole lot. These two have natural chemistry that jumps from the photo. Shelby has a beautiful smile and Chase looks at her like she hung the moon. If nothing else, enjoy the love you can so clearly see.
Congrats you two – I can’t wait to capture your start to forever!
There you have it. Chase, thank you for letting me capture these memories for you guys. Shelby, I can’t wait to see what you’re going to look like as a bride. So many congrats to the both of you and your future together!
This upcoming Thursday & Friday I’ll be in town doing some holiday sessions at a discounted rate. It’s never too late to grab family photos and remember this beautiful time of the year with the ones you love. Simply fill out the form below and grab a spot. I’m capping my shooting time on the 23rd, so grab a session while you can. The new year will bring new prices!
I’m also still offering senior sessions for $75. It has been a blast over the last couple of weeks celebrating with all of my seniors and I’m stoked to continue offering an affordable price for memories that are so so so important!
Lastly, I can’t close out without saying thank you to all of you guys! Without the people that support, book sessions, or simply look at the photos – we’d be nowhere. I get to enjoy this dream of mine on a daily basis and I’m so grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Oh, and happy holidays!
Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…
