LaTara and Derek’s engagement shoot was so fun! We shot in the Wichita Mountains on, I swear, the foggiest day of the year! It was so foggy, we nearly called it off, but I’m so glad we didn’t. It was beautiful in its own way and actually had all the vibes of a Pacific Northwest shoot — which, as an avid fan of the landscape out that way, I was in personal heaven!
These two were such troopers! They both were game for anything. We started down in the prairies and eventually made our way up the boulders for some mountain views. It was gorgeous! We even got to drive by a few longhorn cattle along the way. That was really cool!
I loved how down to earth and sweet LaTara and Derek were together. I didn’t have to know them for very long to see how great they were for each other. Their natural chemistry made everything easy. One of my favorite moments was when Derek kissed LaTara on the forehead. Y’all, my heart melted! You could just see her relax and feel so comfortable — like ‘home’ for her was in his arms. It was beautiful!
LaTara and Derek, it was so much fun to shoot with you two! I can’t wait to celebrate with you both in June!
