This session is at the top of my list for one of the most fun-filled Dallas engagement sessions I have EVER been able to photograph. There were a lot of firsts for this Dallas Wedding Photographer! We (and by WE, I totally mean Coit and Celina) did Crossfit and then I rode backwards at lightening speeds on the swings at the State Fair of Texas for some awesome photos! I have never been so dizzy in my entire life and dangling upside, sideways and backwards while holding thousands of dollars worth of photography equipment all while laughing hysterically was crazy-stupid-fun! I have no idea how I made it off that ride without losing my lunch and my precious Canon 5d Mark 3 .. HA!
You may remember this sweet couple from their wedding proposal story at the beginning of this year. Coit told Celina he bought a Groupon for some portraits and completely threw her for a loop when it was actually a plan to get his beautiful proposal documented. We met up shortly after to talk about their wedding photography and their story. Turns out they met at a Crossfit competition and it was a huge part of their relationship. We just had to include this into our session. We met up at the gym, Wake Crossfit in Lake Dallas where they work out and I was so excited about all of the natural light streaming through the windows. After a quick change, we made a mad dash to downtown Dallas for some Texas State Fair action. Cotton candy, coupons, a fun house, the swings and some games were our main attractions. We were wrapping the shoot when we noticed some fireworks in the distance … yep, it was a magical day! I was so excited to go on this adventure with you guys and can’t wait for your wedding this next spring! I wish you both a lifetime full of love and laughter and may each day be better than the last!
