{Austin Engagement} Tina + Dustin

“Love!!!! It made me cry good cry. Dustin loved it.”

I met Tina in the very late 90’s when I was in high school. We both lived in FL at the time and she would often serve my sisters and I “sampler platters and strawberry tall cakes” as I was told on the day of this engagement session. I always thought her sweet and and it was about a year or so later that Tina and I would find ourselves at the same parties among common friends, being silly and quoting lines from the movie “Freeway”. I always had my camera in tow and I remember the “mean” faces Tina would give me anytime I snapped a compromising photo.

Fast forward ten+ years – Tina’s perfect guy pops the question and she decides they would drive over to Austin from San Antonio for engagement photos. Although it had been a decade since we’d last seen each other and spoken to one another, I immediately knew the places I had to take her and her fiance. I was ecstatic. And as you can see in these photos, it really didn’t matter where I took Tina and Dustin. These two are pretty much comfortable together anywhere. Should I mention their first date lasted an entire weekend?

And this is why I love my job – photography can open you up to something new, bring you somewhere unexpected, and take you places that are old and familiar. Tina & Dustin – thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this special time in your life. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my old friends {talking history not age here} happy. Not even chocolate milkshakes or strawberry tall cakes. I hope you enjoy the photos and slideshow!
