Shay’s Giraffe Bridal Portraits in Uvalde

We love a crazy idea. When Shay asked if we would go to Uvalde to make some epic bridal portraits, we said yes. I’m not a big fan of the word “epic”, but I think it is appropriate in this case. We started off searching the ranch for the giraffes with my truck. We didn’t have to look for long. One of the giraffe’s and her calf were hanging out near the front of the property among the mesquite trees.

If you ever need to make friends with a giraffe, just bring a bag of carrots, or maybe a bridal bouquet. She seemed equally interested in eating either.

Taylor and Alex: Joshua Tree Adventure Engagement

When couples say yes to our crazy ideas, spectacular things happen. We met Taylor and Alex at the Georgetown Bridal Show even though they live in the Bay Area (as in California). Conversations ensued. We road tripped out to meet them at Joshua Tree for a destination adventure engagement.

Joshua Tree National Park is a dream location. It is the sort of place where a photographer can point their camera in any direction and get spectacular photos. We started in the Cholla Garden, hung out at Skull Rock for sunset and then watch moon rise in Hidden Valley.  Needless to say, we had a ton of fun on this one.

Jason and Shay: Inks Lake Adventure Engagement in Burnet

The Texas hill country is full of beautiful locations to explore and we love it when couples say yes to exploring them during their engagement session. Jason and Shey met us for an Inks Lake Adventure Engagement. Check out (and I don’t normally get to say this) Shay’s adventure giraffe bridal shoot.

Reflective Inks Lake Adventure Engagement

Inks lake is a beautiful natural location for engagement photos. The rugged landscape fit Shay and Jason’s adventurous spirit perfectly. Thanks to some recent rain, there were even reflective puddles on the granite.

Starry Engagement Photos

The stars were big and bright over Shay and Jason. They said yes to hanging out and waiting for full dark. Then the fun began.
