I met Nadya at a local Starbucks back in late May to discuss her June engagement session. My home office, and home for that matter, was a complete mess and in the middle of a re-flooring debacle. This floor debacle has kept me away from my main computer for much of the past three months but since the flooring and furniture have all been replaced, I am back at my chair ready to blog. Nadya and Alex's engagement session has been on my queue log to share.
Nadya and Alex are both not local to the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. They are also both in the education field which is how they initially met. I have recently learned of their finalized plans to celebrate the start of their marriage with a lovely wedding in central Texas. Texas seems to be fitting for this couple and, specifically for their engagement session, as one of Nadya's requests was to have a rustic location where she could wear her favorite cowboy boots. La Munequita Ranch in Mission, Texas provided the perfect backdrop for their lovely summer engagement session. Photographed late in the day, practically early evening, the light was absolutely beautiful that day. The ranch and it's pretty pastels provided for a serene backdrop to a nice pop of red.
I haven't photographed many engagements this summer so to say this was a favorite would be unfair. But it is certainly one of my all time favorite engagement sessions I have photographed. Nadya and Alex were so effortlessly easy to capture in photographs and the conversation never ceased flowing. Cheers to the happy couple!
Congratulations on your engagement Nadya and Alex! You were an absolute pleasure to meet and photograph. Happy wedding planning!
