Erin & Jeff's sweet engagement session has to be one my favorites to date! One because we got to do it at the Ranger Ballpark, but two because they brought the LOVE. I met Erin back in junior high and although we lost touch over the years after going different ways in high school when she reached out about engagement photos I knew we were going to have a great time! And boy did we! From watching these two struggle to blow bubble gum bubbles, and getting to explore their love and relationship through baseball it was definitely a session to remember.
Erin & Jeff met about 4 years ago while Jeff was in a softball league with Erin's dad! The two instantly clicked, and after a few dates they knew it was right! Over the years their love and relationship have grown into a beautiful example of what love should be. Two hard working people, that just can't contain their love and feelings for one another. From giggles to sweet forehead kisses, you can tell this wedding and marriage are going to be amazing.
Now I know you are all wondering, how the heck were they able to do their engagement session at the Ranger Ballpark?! Well we had the perfect situation as Jeff works for the Texas Rangers! Best job ever right?! I think so!
Now, I have shot at the ballpark before, but this time was different as we had access to some of the most beautiful parts of the stadium. We had fun in the dugout, outer track, bullpen and finished off with some cuteness in the outfield. For other photographers out there, you can pay to do shoots at the ball park and depending on how much access you want the pricing varies! During my last shoot we had access to everything accept for feet on the field, and the photos still turned out great!
This shoot is definitely one for the books, and if there is anything that makes me completely happy with a shoot its when we can pull the surroundings and theme to be centered around my couples! Erin & Jeff both love them some sports especially baseball, but their love for one another is so much greater! To finish off the day I had the pleasure of capturing their love a little bit more at a local park where we switched gears a little bit and went back to a more classic engagement shoot style and it was the perfect way to end a wonderful session!!
It seems so redundant because you're shooting an engagement shoot, but so often you'll see posed photos where lets be honest the couples don't really look like themselves! Thats the exact opposite of what I strive for in my shoots. When I start the session I always start off by saying, "I want this to be as fun and relaxed for you two as possible. So lets have some fun, get weird, and have a great day!" Its my job to capture one of the most fun and exciting times in your lives and turn them into physical memories, so when I get my couples and start the process of working together I want to get to know you! Whether its meeting you at the session for the first time, or talking over email I want to know you guys as if you're my friends not just my clients! So if you're interested in becoming client besties, lets chat and make some photo magic!
