I loved everything about this engagement session. Tyler & Kevin are definitely my kind of people. They are super easygoing, and just plain cool. We met up at The Botanical Gardens in Zilker Park for the first part of the session. I used to shoot there often, a few years back, but it has been a while since I have had a portrait session in that neck of the woods. I forgot about how gorgeous that place really is! For this session I really focused on on using the natural lighting to bring these photos to life. The grounds are so beautiful and well manicured, that it really is hard to take a bad shot there. Pretty much every photo in this series is back lit or in the shade, and they turned out just the way I wanted them to. Shooting each photo with the quality of light in mind is the way I approach every shoot, but I especially love the colors that were brought out in this specific session. The warm tones and rich greens really make these photos easy on the eyes.
Kevin and Tyler are getting married at the beautiful Lost Mission in Spring Branch Texas later this year. That venue is one of the most stunning locations in central Texas. You can view some recent weddings that I have shot out there here, here and here. You can read a bit about the venue here if you would like to learn more about what they offer. I wish that I were able to shoot Tyler & Kevin’s wedding, but unfortunately I was already booked up by the time we got in touch! Anyways, here are a few of my favorite shots from the day. Enjoy the engagement preview, and many congrats to Tyler and Kevin!!
