A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of visiting a hidden gem in the Rio Grande Valley. The Hilltop Gardens is located in Lyford, Texas and served as a perfect backdrop for Marissa and Greg's engagement session.
Marissa discovered the gardens a few weeks beforehand and after visiting the place herself, she was ecstatic about having her engagement portraits done there. I think she chose an absolutely beautiful place. Our morning session was quite and fresh as we perused the gardens.
Marissa and Greg were so effortlessly easy to photograph. This was the first time I had met Greg, but I felt like I already knew him. Over the past few months, Marissa and I have had a few conversations and I learned not only about the details of their upcoming wedding, but about her beloved fiancé.
The two of them have been dating for a while now and are planning a beautiful island wedding in the upcoming Spring. Marissa is energetic, intelligent, and has a beautiful attitude. Her smile is vivacious and full of life. I am most certainly it is one of the attributes Greg, her soon to be groom, loves. Greg is smart, hard working, and has a great sense of humor. I think the two of them make a lovely and great couple. Photographing them was so easy and we had some great laughs throughout the course of the morning.
Marissa, thank you for selecting such a beautiful place for me to visit. Most importantly and humbly, thank you for selecting me as your wedding photographer. I am looking forward to a great wedding!
Happy December friends!
