Last weekend when I was home, I had the opportunity to shoot Highland Park engagement photos with my cousin & his fiancé! If you’ve been following me for more than a year, you’re probably thinking – didn’t you already shoot your cousin’s engagements in NYC last summer? Yes – I did! This is Chad’s older brother, Matt! I have so many childhood memories with these two and their oldest brother, Elry. They are my closest family on my Dad’s side since they are all three around the same age as me and my sisters, plus they only lived 4 hours away in Houston when we were growing up in Dallas! I LOVE my memories with their family! They are the closest thing I have to brothers and they have such a special place in my heart! (Still haven’t forgiven Matthew for the “little piece of junk” nickname I got from him though!)
Matt started dating Melissa about two to three-ish years ago, and she has been a wonderful and warm addition to the family ever since. They actually got engaged on a beach in Brazil (!!!!!!!!!!!), where Mel is from! How amazing is that? I was beyond excited to hear that he was officially asking her to be his wife, and literally couldn’t wait for them to get back so that we could celebrate with a photoshoot! 🙂 It took us a couple months to get scheduled, but the wait was worth it! We had beautiful weather, gorgeous green backdrops in Highland Park, and of course a PERFECT couple! It was a blessing to to be able to capture these darling photos. I love you two and cannot WAIT for May!
