If it’s possible to give out awards for happiest first emails, Erin would have won the gold medal. The first time she reached out to me — over a year ago — she used so many exclamation marks that I found myself grinning. Hi! I’m Erin! I’m engaged to marry Pete! And the fourth thought I had after he proposed was, “HOLY SHIZZ I CAN FINALLY HIRE ELISSA TO PHOTOGRAPH THE WEDDING.”
So this engagement session is a long time coming. And although we were not blessed with amazing Texas sunlight — it poured all day — we ran with it. It’s wonderful having clients who say, “We trust you; do what you want.” So we played with light. We spent a lot of time together. We had cupcakes at Sugar Mama’s, got eaten alive by mosquitoes in Enchanted Forest, and Erin ruined a pair of beautiful blue suede pumps at Castle Hill graffiti park, but we made some beautiful photos. I’m so excited for Erin and Pete’s wedding this November :)
Very very cute and simple engagement. I’m a big fan of flash, as that’s something I’ve been really adding to my own work… so that really caught my eye!
