This session is very different than anything I have ever done before. I am based in Dallas, Tx which means that I usually only shoot in surrounding areas, at locations that I am familiar with or can at least scout out. This session was the exception. This couple grew up in a tiny town called Balmoreah in west Texas. They have known each other their entire lives and will be tying the knot next weekend. James is a member at my church, and when he expressed interest in hiring me as their engagement photographer, I knew that I was going to have to do something special for their session. You see, James and Jo Gina are cool, quirky, and have such a uniqueness to their relationship and personality that a regular session just wouldn’t do. First off, they wanted the session’s location to truly capture them. Second, they wanted their personality and interests to shine through the images. Because of that, it was decided that I would be flown out to Balmoreah and would be putting together a styled engagement session for them. After weeks and weeks of thrifting, etsy-ing (is that even a word?), pouring over pinterest, countless emails and phone calls, and mood- board-mounting, we were finally ready. In in end, after an exciting and exhausting week, everything came together perfectly. Their little town was perfection, as were they, and I couldn’t be happier that I got the chance to be their photographer.
