Engagement photos are fun especially when you are with two hilarious people. Toni and Bryan were a blast and Ava is the most adorable babe ever! I’m excited for their future together. No one deserves a happy and beautiful life more than Toni and Bryan is absolutely the perfect guy to give her that.
The Gonzales family are a lively bunch so there was not a dull moment with these guys, for sure. I was honored to take their family photos for their dads 69th birthday and parents 29th anniversary. It was also really refreshing and so comforting to be around a family whojust loves each other. I guess that is what you get when you have a 69 year old man who loves his wife and kids more than anything in this world!
Fernando and Sandy were so easy to shoot, I’d just give them a pose and they would kill it! One thing that really caught my attention though is how they look at each other, like they really really love each other. Sometimes it was as if I wasn’t even there. I would probably even bet that they still give each other the butterflies. Its awesome! I cant wait for their baby boy to get here. If they love each other this much than the amount of love they have for their lil boy is going to be truly amazing.
Lala is about 5’1 and Petey is 6’5 and they have been with each other for 17 years, almost there whole lives, or atleast the important years. They are hilarious together and still get that young love stare whenever they look at each other. They have already been blessed with an adorable son and now they have a baby girl on the way. Honestly, it was an honor to be able to do their gender reveal photos and to be the only one to know that it was a girl besides them and the doctor, of course.
About nine years ago my family moved to North Waco area. It was your typical move; U-Haul, a lot of sweat, transition, new address, and new neighbors. But, never in our lives would we have guess that the girl next door would end up being my brothers future wife. Yesterday, I got the chance to hang out with these two. My brother Ben and his wife Nadya have been married for almost six years and have two precious little babes. They have been through it all, ups and downs, hard times and good times but I can honestly say that I have never seen my brother so in love. She is his best friend and he is her protector and they know that they are better together. I would definitely say that I am blessed to have had them show me at a young age that marriage is hard but it is absolutely worth it. Love is not just a feeling, its is a verb that requires a ton of action.
My roommate and great friend Bri’s 21st birthday was Monday and due to our busy schedules, we didn’t get to do much. So we decided we would make it up on Friday and boy did we do that. We asked Bri what she wanted to do and she said cliff jumping; which should tell you a lot about her personality, always down for adventure. So after an hour of driving and probably another hour of conquering fears, they jumped. Here are a few shots of tonight.
