Jason & Benita-Engagement Session

Well, it’s been almost a year since I’ve updated this blog but I have a good excuse this time! Almost a week or two after my last post in October I found out I was pregnant, had a baby, and now I’m back :) Currently I’ve been taking a small break from photography since May and I’ll be starting back up in September. While I have some free time on me, I wanted to share with you a special e-session that’s very close to my heart!

Jason & Benita are both like a younger brother and sister to me. I met them when we all went to the same church and I clicked with them both independently. Jason is like the annoying little brother I never had who would call me to talk about his girl problems…which secretly meant a lot to me that he cared for my advice. We’ve played volleyball together, did all sorts of dances with each other, and currently we serve as esteemed members of the famous pizza club. Benita is like the little sister I never had…except she wasn’t annoying like Jason :) I’ve seen her through her awkward stages, we have secrets that we will take with us to the grave involving graduation ceremonies, we’ve done all sorts of dances, and so much more. One thing I love about my friendship with Benita is that we both are very similar in the way that we think and we’ve gone through a lot of the same experiences. I was able to hear both of them gush about the other and watch their relationship grow and develop over the years. Jason held the door open for me as I walked down the aisle at my own wedding and Benita stood as a bridesmaid for me. Needless to say, they both hold such a special place in my heart. Their wedding is just less than a month away and I had the honor of capturing some engagement photos for them!

For their engagement session, we first met up at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano to capture shots with their Indian outfits on. Yall, these pictures looked like they were straight up from DDLJ! We spent majority of our time there and then headed to downtown Dallas to get some shots of them in their American clothes too. Jason & Benita were so much fun to work with, and I can’t wait for their big day. Enjoy some of my favorites from their session!
