Mike & I met in college and have now known each other for a few years and ever since I have known him he has been with Leigh. They are one of those strange and awesomely lucky couples that met in high school and have been together ever since (now going on 13 years!). After Mike graduated (the same semester I did!) he moved back to Houston and proposed to Leigh. Needless to say I was so excited that Mike was finally going to settle down after taking the 8+ year program through college. I didn’t know Leigh too well during my friendship with Mike but as soon as I met her I realized how sweet she was and how much she really cared about him…. and could see exactly why he wanted to be with her all these years.
Not only are they amazing people, they wanted to amazing things for their engagement session. Mike wore his tuxedo that he wore to his senior prom (yes from that long ago) that he actually attended with Leigh and Leigh purchased a dress from his mother’s thrift store. They both went to school in San Marcos and as everyone knows Texas State is known for being the best town to float in, so it just made sense to incorporate that into the shoot. The pictures truly speak for themselves and I had a blast, so enjoy!!!
My wonderful boyfriend Ben & I did this shoot together and he has some incredible video, check it out at his blog.
Out takes blog post coming soon as well!
it’s snowing in July! … in Texas?… ok no not really it was a cotton tree!
Maybe a dangerous situation for my camera, but it helped me get some great shots!
Seeing as we were all from Houston, we also shot there one day. Mike is much more athletic than most people think : )
