    Bailey and Ben – Beaumont Engagement

    Bailey and Ben were married recently in a beautiful wedding at St Andrews Presbyterian Church – some of their engagement photos were used in their Save the Date cards and wedding slideshow, so I held off posting a few of my favorites until now πŸ™‚ I *think* Tucker knows he’s part of the extended family, but he’s still marking his territory… Meanwhile, Ben is not above marking his territory too πŸ™‚ A truce is called and we were able to continue this fun engagement session around Bailey’s home and a local park πŸ™‚ Fun day! Stay tuned for Bailey’s amazing bridal portraits! πŸ™‚

    Lauren and Jacob are Getting Married!

    Lauren and Jacob are getting married tomorrow! πŸ˜€ Lauren and Jacob’s careers (and love life) have entwined them around the Beaumont Country Club so we thought it would be perfect to spend some time on the greens this past Spring – the birds were singing, dogs were hassling us, not a cloud in the sky πŸ™‚ Dogs… I’ve never been more harassed by 3 sweet dogs, in.. ever. I won’t be showing the r-rated stuff the little brown female dog forced us to watch, but she needs a cold shower, for sure. Nobody knows where they came from, they just showed up at the beginning of our session and followed…

    Kayla and Jed – Beaumont Engagements

    Kayla, Jed and I got together recently to document their love story – one that just coincidently began a block from our homes, more on that in a bit πŸ™‚ Engagement sessions with BellaFotografica are all about a fun relaxed atmosphere and letting the couple be themselves. No-one comes into the session having been an accomplished model, but if you’re comfortable being around your fianc , ( πŸ˜‰ ), then it’s going to show through in your photos. What we get are *great* fun relaxed images of you two, photos you and your grandkids will treasure πŸ™‚ OK, back to Kayla and Jed’s love story – it began one day…

    Cara and Trey – Beaumont Engagements

    Cara and Trey are getting married soon and we spent a little time on their ranch recently to capture, well… basically her dogs. πŸ™‚ It’s been a while since I’ve had an engagement session where the dogs were so engaged – they literally followed us everywhere and would sit and pose if we got too still. Still, they’re considered family around the Schrontz ponderosa and actually did a good job for us. I think they’ve done this before πŸ™‚ Cara and Trey were perfect tho, and once the dogs decided we were there for relaxation and fun, they had no problem joining in, sitting a spell and getting their tummies…

    Lyndsey and Tommy are Getting Married!

    Lyndsey and Tommy are getting married this weekend at the beautiful Book Nook Inn in Lumberton! When I met with Lyndsey way back when to discuss her plans for her big day, I was excited to learn of her plans for the outdoor ceremony. Lyndsey works with Michelle Randall, of Michelle Randall Event fame, and they’ve started early this week making the grounds around the Inn on Cooks Lake Road just perfect πŸ™‚ We met recently to photograph her and her beau in and around the inn – they’ve got a real gem of a place just a few minutes from wherever you are – you should spend a weekend…

    Engagement Photos on the Beach ~ Brenna and Beau

    With all of the great winter weather we’re getting ( πŸ˜‰ ), of course that means it’s time to share Brenna and Beau’s engagement photos on the beach! Read on a little further to see we didn’t necessarily need this campfire to supply the warmth πŸ™‚ You can tell by their comfort level with each other that they’ve known each other literally forever. I strive in our engagement sessions to make them meaningful, laidback and casual afternoons to be enjoyed by the couple – with Brenna and Beau, I don’t think they even knew I was there πŸ™‚ *Great* afternoon… Their wedding is coming soon in Beaumont at Wesley UMC…
