This day was amazing! And in more ways than one! After having spent the last two months at home and unable to do what I love, Madolyn and Gio's engagement session was just what I needed to get back into my groove!! We first met Madolyn back in February, at the Mid-Cities Bridal Show. She and Gio, along with Madolyn's father, came in for a consult that next week and we just fell in love with all of them! Once we made it official, we began planning our favorite thing... The Engagement Session! We scheduled a date for the end of May, but would soon discover that plans may need to change. Luckily, we had scheduled it far enough out that everything ended up working out perfectly!
It wasn't without it's challenges though! On Friday, Stephen and I went to scout everything to see what the conditions were like in downtown. Due to the pandemic, most of Sundance Square was shut down, and the Water Gardens had been turned off. But this didn't dampen our spirits, no sir! We ended up finding the most beautiful place to shoot just on the outside of the square! Madolyn and Gio agreed and that's where we decided to meet!
How stinkin' cute are these two?! And Madolyn's dress!! Doesn't she look stunning! We were so excited and wanted to make the most of our time in downtown, so we decided to walk a little ways into the square to grab a few "downtown shots" and then we would head back to the main shooting location. Well, to our surprise, they had actually opened Sundance Square! AND we had it all to ourselves! How awesome is that!? We were also lucky enough to come across the Fort Worth Fire Station No.1! Madolyn is a firefighter, so of course, this was absolutely PERFECT for us to find!!
Did I mention the weather was also perfect? Yes, it was hot, LOL, it's Texas! But every once in a while we had a soft breeze that helped cool us down, and we always keep some water bottles with us! We had gorgeous light the entire time, and as we made our way to Trinity Park for our final skyline shots, we even got a little bit of color in the sunset!
Congratulations on your engagement, Madolyn and Gio! We are so excited to be a part of this special time in your lives and we cannot wait for wedding day next year!!!
