Oh my goodness, this engagement session in Abilene, TX was so much fun. Alli and Ruben are actually from Midland, TX and they came all the way to Abilene for our session, and I’m so glad they did! For one, there’s no doubt in the chemistry these two have. They’ve been together for almost TEN YEARS. Can you believe it?? They were high school sweethearts, and will be getting married in December right after their ten year anniversary. Two, they were just so sweet and kind to each other. You can tell these two love one another so well. ALSO, look at them. They are SO cute. Also, Alli is a makeup artist herself and she looked absolutely stunning for our evening together.
Alli said that she wanted some greenery and trees in our locations! So of course, we went to the Dr. Seuss park in Abilene, by the Grace Museum. I just can’t beat that greenery all along the walls! But for our second location, we went to Buffalo Gap, TX. There, we went to this field that had amazing trees EVERYWHERE. Usually the trees in Abilene are quite…you know…dead. So this was such a great find. The sun gave us a beautiful golden glow right before it set, and we hung around until there was no light left for us.
Engagement sessions are SO important. This session gave me opportunity to really get to know Alli and Ruben. I now know what makes them laugh, their little secret whispers and inside jokes, and how sweet they will naturally be to each other. It also gave them a chance to know how I work and that having someone take pictures of you isn’t actually that weird! So now when their gorgeous wedding day comes up in December, we will be fully comfortable with each other, and the day will flow so seamlessly. I love being able to walk through such a special time with my couples. Alli and Ruben, it was so awesome to get to know you guys and I’m seriously counting down the days until December 22nd!
