Because of their love of nature, Lauren and James had their heart set on a session at Krause Springs in Spicewood. I’d only been out there once before on a crowded summer afternoon when the pools were at full capacity, and had wished to see it on an undisturbed day. For this session, it was in the heart of autumn and we had our pick of the place with hardly anyone there to bother us. I can’t stress how gorgeous this place is, and since we were some of the few people there, we also explored the butterfly garden, a spot that’s often overlooked because of the pools but is totally enchanting.
Every photographer should be blessed with a couple who trusts them completely; I had floated the idea of Lauren and James dipping their feet into the springs at the end of the session and had suggested they bring towels just in case. When I saw the above shot in my head, I knew I had to take a chance and ask if they’d submerge completely (it was the only way to get to the rock underneath the mossy overhang), and they unhesitatingly said yes. (Now that they’ve seen their photos, they said they were so glad to do it, and it’s one of their favorites! Yay!)
I’m so excited about their beautiful Hill Country wedding next October!
