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 🙂 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 , ( 😉 ), 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 🙂 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. 🙂 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 🙂 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…
Bauer Ranch Engagement – Mandy and Jim
Recently I met Mandy and Jim in Winnie at the Bauer Ranch for their engagement/family session for their upcoming wedding – they were coming down from Virginia for their wedding with family in the Beaumont area. What a handsome family they have! Here are a few of my favorites: The Bauer Ranch hosts all sorts of events from weddings to etiquette school to parties – our afternoon there was perfect 🙂 Their little guys can’t wait until the wedding, they have very important parts to play themselves 🙂 Beautiful day! Wedding photos soon! 🙂
Amy and Trey are Getting Married!
We recently posted our engagement session in the rain with Amy and Trey – we went with the flow, but the rain really wasn’t the setting we were wanting for these lifetime memories. 🙂 After rescheduling for another day, the weather turned out *perfect* and today we get to share a few of our favorites from their session on a friend’s property in China. Amy and Trey are an awesome couple with a ton of personality and were so much fun to work with, it was great to get to know them better 🙂 Trey made a great prop that afternoon – he should consider being a model 🙂 *Great*…
Stephanie and Ryan are Getting Married!
Stephanie and Ryan were engaged this past summer and their whirlwind romance will culminate next May in what’s sure to be a gorgeous wedding at Praise Christian Center! 🙂 Those who’ve been reading here for a while know how much more meaningful engagement sessions are when we can photograph them in locations that mean something to you as a couple – Stephanie and Ryan hit the meaningful button on the nose. We spent the afternoon at a pond near Stephanie’s home in Lumberton where they like to hang out and the place where sparks first flew between them. Below are a few of my favorites from the session, enjoy! :…
Amy and Trey – Engagement in the Rain
For those who remember the recent monsoon, that was the great fine day Amy and I had chosen to photograph her and Trey’s engagement session. Even right up the time to begin and on into the session, we kept thinking – “hey, we can make this work” – mother nature (or at least the front blowing across Texas) had other plans, as by the end of our time together we could barely see each other 🙂 We began innocently enough with the classic “American Gothic” at a barnyard in China, Tx 🙂 Raindrops kept falling on our heads… it was easy to get a little disappointed, until we just decided…
Houston Engagements – Melanie and Trey are Getting Married!
Melanie (who’s from Lumberton) and Trey (who’s from Hamshire), met on Crystal Beach and are now living in Houston – so of course we had their engagement photos in Beaumont 🙂 Both grew up in small town Southeast Texas and wanted more of a country feel to their session and with busy jobs in healthcare, squeezing in a fun afternoon together took a bit of work, but I believe it was worth it – pretty pictures ahead! 🙂 Family member Baxter wanted to get in on the action, so he began by “saying his prayers” then showing us what a mighty dog he is. 🙂 Good boy Baxter! 🙂 From…
