We began with a family portrait when we photographed Amy and Jim’s recent engagement session in Port Arthur. Slade, part dog and part horse, makes quite the handsome addition to the family 🙂
The wind that day was just nuts, blowing us every way but straight, but Amy and Jim were up for it so we jumped in with both feet! 🙂
hmm… I liked these in black and white, but the color of the day was definitely red…
Quite the handsome couple, their easy laughter made the afternoon in and around Lamar Port Arthur and the downtown area just fly by!
After changing into a new outfit, we moved on to downtown Port Arthur and the nearby seawall. Amy and Jim have deep roots in the area and it seemed every place we stopped Amy would tell me “that’s where my grandmother used to go to events”, “that bank is where my grandfather worked for many years”. Most of the area had definitly seen better days. In the 1920’s Port Arthur and the seawall were the places to see and be seen, have fun and relax.
Here Slade takes them for a early-evening walk:
Jim, an air-traffic controller with the local Jefferson County airport, wasn’t quite as bubbly as Amy but even he said the afternoon was quite enjoyable. 😀
As evening closes in, we make plans for more fun at their upcoming summer wedding – stay tuned for a crazy good time, the highlights here are some you won’t want to miss!
