Mack and I have been in love with the Marble Falls area for years now. We love vacationing there, day tripping there, even just driving through the pretty little lake town. We posted a few photos earlier this summer of a family trip to Inks Lake State Park and Devil’s Waterhole, and Allison immediately emailed me and said, “That. I want that. For engagement pictures.”
I proceeded to explain to Allison that we’ve been dying to shoot some sessions in this spot (one of our favorites in the whole state), but that it was going to be pretty physically demanding with all the hiking involved. Allison reassured me that she & Brett were all-in, and excited to see what we would come up with.
Fast forward to last week, with the most beautiful blue sky and puffy white clouds, delicious breezes and a little green still on the trees. The climbing & hiking and (ahem) jumping to get these photos might have worn us all out, but I hope you’ll agree, the end-product was so totally worth it.
We started our session at Longhorn Caverns. We didn’t go down INTO the caves (at least, not on this trip), but just the public areas are plenty awesome.
These lovebirds have been together for several years, and the easy nature of their relationship makes them so much fun to photograph. You can tell instantly that they truly are best friends, and enjoy every second they spend together.
But, ya know, they can pull out the smolder faces when we need a break from laughing. 😉
If you haven’t noticed Allison’s stunning eyes before now, you’ll definitely notice them now! And no, that isn’t photoshop magic. She’s just gorgeous.
After the caverns, we drove down a few miles of beautiful country rode and hit Inks Lake State Park, and then hiked over to the area around the Devils Waterhole. This truly is the most magical place in Texas, as far as I’m concerned, and I could shoot forty-eleven sessions here and never get tired of it.
Remember what I said about Jumping?? Yeah. That happened. If you’ve got to get into the lake for steamy wet end-of-session photos, you might as well get into it in the most fun way possible, right?
Allison & Brett showed that 20 foot cliff who’s BOSS.
I almost felt like Mack and I should avert our eyes from this last scene. Instead, we just embraced our creeper natures and took lots of pictures. 🙂
You guys. You’re smokin’ hot, so much fun, and we’re so glad you chose us to capture all these special moments for you. Whyyyyy does your wedding have to still be 7 months away?
