Kicked off the summer with a sun set engagement session (click here to read that post) and ended the summer the same exact way, sorta — I’m not mad about it! The golden hour beauty may have given us the slip for the majority of the session thanks to cloud cover, but nevertheless we still got some beautiful images. As a matter of fact, some of these are my favorite couple pics ever! I know, I know, I say that practically every time, but it’s true!
If you’re new around here, or just simply didn’t know, Sami was one of my college roommates and is now one of my best friends (I get to be in her wedding y’all!! I’m never in weddings since I am usually shooting them). I’ve taken everything from her senior pics to her proposal (hid behind a trash can, classic) and now engagements. Needless to say I’m no stranger to working with and hanging out with Sami AND her fiancé Brandon. I remember when they went on their first date — boy does time fly!
They chose to take their engagement pictures in Round Rock, TX where Brandon is from rather than in Midland, TX where Sami is from. I can’t say I blame them either, the Hill Country is absolutely stunning in the summer and although Midland holds a special place in my heart, it’s not always the greenest or most photogenic. As I mentioned earlier, golden hour gave us the slip thanks to cloud cover, but we did wind up shooting into blue hour and the pictures turned out just as beautiful. I mean heck, look at these! Next stop: marriage. I cannot wait to celebrate these two again, come January!
