Justine & Garrett are such a nice couple, and they are an absolute breeze to photograph. They needed little to no direction whatsoever! This made my job very easy. Aside from being awesome in front of the camera, we shot at this seriously amazing location. The grounds were unbelievably gorgeous, and looked almost prehistoric. I grew up in Houston and only went to this park once or twice on field trips as a kid. If I lived out that way, this would definitely be a frequented location for me. It was really fun shooting in such a crazy looking place! Here is a little history bend the park: Brazos Bend State Park, approximately 28 miles southwest of Houston, covers roughly 5,000 acres, with an eastern boundary of 3.2 miles fronting on the Brazos River on the southeast border of Fort Bend County. This was the area of Texas’ first Anglo colonization. It was purchased by the state in 1976-77 and was opened to the public in 1984. In the early 19th century, this area of Texas was the site of Stephen F. Austin’s first colonial land grant from Mexico! Interesting, huh! 🙂
I’m am beyond excited to share these photos with you, and I am excited to be a part of their wedding day (keep an eye out for their wedding photos this fall). They are getting married at The Terrace Club in Dripping Springs, TX on November 21, 2015. Enjoy their collection and congrats to Justine & Garrett!
