Vanessa & Ben : Engagement

Vanessa & Ben planned the perfect fall engagement session for the first week of November, knowing that October weather can be kind of hit-or-miss. And, well, it’s Texas. So the day rolled around, and it was actually 90 degrees! So crazy. This gorgeous couple totally rocked through it, though, and Vanessa managed not to sweat her face off in her adorable fall outfits. 🙂

I have to say, I have a shameless hair crush on this bride. I bet it weighs as much as she does, so I don’t envy her having to carry that around during the summer, but WOW. So gorgeous. Ben’s not bad looking himself, and they have a sweet kind of love that made them an absolute breeze to photograph. We shot this session around the Botanic Gardens in Fort Worth, and thanks to the recent rain, everything was really green and lush!

These next two are favorites, for sure. Love love love this spot, that emotion, her dress. All around prettiness.


Vanessa & Ben, I promise I’ll do everything I can to make sure you’re not sweating during your early March wedding. I mean, it’s Texas… but I’ll do what I can! 😉
