Erika + Daniel
Chachalaca Engagement | Los Fresnos, Texas

I photographed Erika and Daniel in the middle of the summer at one of my favorite Rio Grande Valley locations, The Inn at Chachalaca Bend, in Los Fresnos.  Every time I visit the Inn at Chachalaca Bend, I am in awe of how it is surrounded by bright pops of green. While you can beat the humidity and heat during the South Texas summer, Erika and Daniel did great as we explored the area. They did an amazing job in front of the camera; directing them was quite effortless.

These two Brownsville natives are taking the next big Texas city by storm and happily on their way to planning a fairytale wedding. Erika and Daniel are sweet, caring, and very much in love. It was a pleasure to meet them both and watch them bring out the smiles in each other.

After exploring the inn, we ventured into the outer Los Fresnos area for some fun color powder shots. Erika was really excited about having some photos taken after playfully fighting with some very bright and colorful powder. While I didn't join in the actual fun, I did enjoy seeing them interact with each other and capture their fun personalities on camera.
 
Erika and Daniel, congratulations on your engagement! I wish you both a happy journey and a loving, blessed marriage. Happy wedding planning! 

Oh, and the best part about this engagement session, my sweet baby Abigail joined me at work.
