Lackland Air Force Base Engagement : Jaime + Mark

By | Engagements | No Comments

Jaime and Mark are one of my out-of-state couples and they made some time in their schedule to hang out early one morning and shoot their engagements while they visited San Antonio for a week to work on their wedding plans. We started out near the King Williams historical district, and at this particular bridge there lived a family of very loud ducks and one curious little birdie. In this first shot I’m trying to give a little direction, but all Jaime and Mark can hear is QUACK QUACK QUACK.

When was the last time you snuggled on a bridge at sunrise?

Taking a little stroll.

And now… AIRPLANE! Since Mark is a pilot they really wanted to integrate his passion for aviation in their engagement session. The plane we shot with below has extra-special meaning – Mark’s grandfather flew this same type of aircraft in WW2.

The establishing shot:

His name is Mark… but you can call him… Maverick.

Gruene Engagement : Jenna + Andrew

Jenna & Andrew booked me from the furthest distance to date… they were stationed in Misawa, Japan! We immediately hit it off and started building a great rapport and after a flurry of communications, they were booked over the internets. I can honestly say they have been one of the coolest and nicest couples I’ve had the pleasure to work with.

Since they were coming such a long way and we were all so excited, we did an extended (4 hours instead of 2) engagement session in historic Gruene, TX – we even had lunch together at the Gristmill (mmmm….). We took a stroll through the town, stopping at any place that piqued our interest, and just had a nice time together. It was like a casual date with us along for the ride – just how I like it!
