Karen + Alex: Engagement Portraits in Deep Ellum and at Lakeside Park in Highland Park

pintopinterestMeet Karen & Alex. They’re getting married in May and having their reception at the Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas. These two are so full of joy and laughter and it was a pleasure to photograph them for their engagement portraits. They have a very sweet and natural interaction. Karen & Alex met at the University of Texas at Austin during Karen’s freshman year. He tutored her in calculus—Like turned to love—And love turned into a proposal. Karen was so sweet and she sent me the proposal story they typed out to share with their family and friends. Alex had sent Karen 37 cards, 37 days in a row and on that 37th day, Alex had a planned his surprise elaborate proposal to Karen. I hope you enjoy these engagement portraits and hope they give you a glimpse into their sweet relationship. pintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterestpintopinterest

  • […] Karen & Alex were married on Saturday at Woodcreek Church in Richardson. Even though they chose to do a first look before the wedding, Alex was still overcome by the beautiful moment of watching his bride walk down the aisle at the beginning of their ceremony. They had so many sweet and emotional moments during their wedding ceremony that I would be surprised if anyone made it through without tearing up a bit. It’s always so exciting for me to see people enjoy express their inner joys and emotions on their wedding days. Karen & Alex didn’t let one moment go by without soaking it in on their wedding day.
