Catherine & Jason : Engagement

When I met Catherine in college, I didn’t know her older sister was friends with Mack… well, to be entirely accurate, I didn’t know Mack. It wasn’t until much later, when talking to my mom about the couple we’d been on a double date with, that we realized we have more of a “way back” connection than we thought. As it turns out, my mom went to church with Catherine’s mom when they were in junior high! Such a fun “small world” situation, particularly since my mom ended up living in Indiana and California before she eventually made it back to Texas.

Over the years, Mack and I kept up with the sister, Cristin, and her family… we even ended up on a cruise with them in 2011 (click here for the throwback blog about that trip). And although she’s a social media hermit, Catherine & I kept loose tabs on each other through the years… a general “hey, that person was cool, I hope they’re doing well.”

So when this gorgeous girl emailed me, saying “I think I found HIM, and I’m so excited I can’t stand it, and it’s highly likely he’ll be proposing soon, and YAY LET’S HAVE FUN!”, I was all about it. And Mack was all about it. And my mom was all about it. 😉

Catherine & Jason are getting married in just over 2 weeks, and we had so much fun getting to know them as a couple during this session. It was CRAZY windy the day we shot, necessitating a last minute change of location and fading light. But when we’re photographing people who are this real and relaxed and just HAPPY with each other, we don’t mind having to move fast.

Thanks for hanging through my wordy intro… now, please feel rewarded with some sweet portraits of this bride & groom at the Fort Worth Water Gardens!

Thanks for your hustle, guys! We’re so excited to preserve some memories from your wedding day… and to celebrate with you!0000
