Mary and Patrick, Texans who relocated to DC, couldn’t think of a better place to have their wedding than good ol’ Texas. They flew down for their engagement session last week… smack-dab in the middle of SXSW. Despite the crowds, we were able to get some amazing shots in and around downtown, including Shangri-La, before ending up at Zilker. I love the Jackie O and JFK vibe they gave off during their first portion of our session… and the sweet, casual, and puppy-filled second part!

      We are so going to rock 2014 together.

      That first photo is so Mad Men. I love it. :)

      The black & white of him kissing her on the cheek close-up?! I die! GORGEOUS. (I mean, all of them really)

      These photos are gorgeous. Beautiful natural moments. Love it.

      That B&W shot is too cute – real happiness right there. Fab.

      So good, I love the forehead touching portrait. The light in these is so nice.

      Your light and color is stunning, Elissa. Love the B&W of him kissing her on the cheek!

      Nothing but sweet stuff. You missed all the crazy crowds and got some killer moments.

      The BW picture is so romantic.

      That first shot is so baller Elissa. This whole session is crazy gorgeous

      I love the first bar shot. What a great couple and session Elissa, you’ve done a great job.

      beautiful shots, love that 2nd to last shot the most. nice!

      Very fun engagement session! Such a good mix of ‘cool’ photos and natural and sweet ones. Love.

      Wow I love the emotion in these images. Wonderfully done.

      Beautiful work – I love the painted wall and the black and white shot!

      Damn, Elissa. This may be my favorite session of yours ever. The first one and the one in the photobooth are killing me.

      That first one is unbelievable.

      Great posing, compositions, and incorporation of the scene. I like the small town feel. Looks like a fun shoot.

      E!!!!! I’m pretty much obsessed with the first three images AND the black and white of him kissing her cheek AND that beautiful second to last one. Wow wow wow. <3
