When I met Angela, love was radiating from her as she talked about her upcoming wedding and her fiancé. Funny thing is, before meeting Steven, she had decided maybe she'd never get married and would just run off to a different state or country to be travel nurse. Even though she wasn't finding much success in dating, Angela agreed one last time to go on a date as a courtesy to a friend...
"To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1
And this time, it was right. Enter Steven...and happily ever after.
In just under two months, Angela and Steven will by tying the knot. Not only do I have the honor of photographing their big day, but I had the pleasure of spending an early morning with them over spring break to make their engagement portraits. This couple is adorable y'all! They were relaxed during their session, just having fun and going with the flow...even with all of my goofy requests.
First stop for their engagement portraits was the Republic of Texas Plaza in Baytown. Angela is on the board (Baytown Historical Preservation Association) that maintains this park, and she's also related to the Woosters, as in the Wooster Common School 38 (historic 1894 one-room schoolhouse) pictured in some of these images. I always love working in places that are special to my clients, because it makes the portraits that much more meaningful.
We made this second set of portraits at the home of a family-friend. It had an immaculately landscaped backyard on the bay. It doesn't get much better than that. And these azaleas...I can't get enough of them!! Aren't they incredible?
As soon as I made this image, I knew it would be a favorite. Love, love!
So glad Angela and Steven have found their "happily ever after" in each other! Cheers to many, many more blessed years of ever after!
