Vanessa + Shawn: Urban Engagement Session

engagement session

Y’all! <3 While it’s getting COLD in DFW, this sweet urban engagement session is going to give you all the warm feelings! If you’re searching for a Dallas wedding and engagement photographer, my blog is a great place to start and get all inspired! 🙂

Vanessa and Shawn will be celebrating their union next year in June, and have already done two sessions with them; I really can’t wait for all the beauty these two will bring to the table!

I remember our first phone conversation with Nessa – she has such an amazing, outgoing, and fun personality – we connected instantly! We talked about life, we talked about humanity, we talked about their wedding – it was probably the best 1-hour spent for client consultation, haha 🙂

Vanessa and Shawn are the perfect duos – while Nessa is bubbly and friendly, Shawn is charismatic and fun. They both enjoy staying home and binge watching the newest TV shows together (which probably came in very handy during this pandemic!) as well as play video games.

The Deep Ellum and Downtown Dallas combo are one of my favorites for engagement sessions. Simultaneously, one is more casual and laid back, the other calls for a more dressy feel.

And as you can see, Nessa and Shawn totally ROCKED IT!

Nessa and Shawn booked my middle collection, which has a two-hour engagement session, so we decided to do half of the session in natural light and the other half towards twilight to get the most variety.

While the dark started to sneak up on us, I had to pop my flashes out! 🙂

And with that, this probably is one of my favorite sessions to date!

    Let's connect!

    The easiest and (most reliable) way to contact me is through my contact form. As I'm always on the go, I'm not always able to answer my phone. Besides, I get a poop ton of spam calls.

    I wouldn't want you to get all mixed up in those! :)
