My cousin Melanie and her fiance Michael met and both graduated from Texas A&M University, where she recently graduated with a Doctorate in Veterinary Sciences (we are all very proud of her). They now reside in Dallas, TX and I was super excited to drag the two of them all over the city for their downtown Dallas engagement session! We started out at the super rad Texas Truckyard, partly because I believe that every engagement session should start with adult beverages, but also because the location looks bright, vibrant and full of awesome textures to photograph against! With an airstream bar and eat-in truck beds, this place was the perfect starting location. It had plenty of shade to shoot in the Texas afternoon sun and a great selection of Texas craft beer.
After that we headed over to White Rock Lake to photograph at The Filter Building, where they will be holding their rehearsal dinner. After that, we headed to the Fountain Place building, an iconic downtown Dallas structure awash with dancing water gardens. This building is significant to Michael because his father works there. It was the weekend, so the fountains weren’t splashing, but it still provided a memorable and stunningly beautiful location to photograph. Next stop was Klyde Warren Park, which offers lush green urban park with a skyline backdrop. Are you tired yet? We were, so we hit up one of my favorite Dallas Tex-Mex spots, Meso Maya, for dinner and margaritas before finishing up on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge for a nighttime Dallas skyline portrait.
