I met up with Alexis and Philip for their Waco engagement session at their home. Despite it being a scorching hot summer day in Texas, we actually had a beautiful day. And with everything planned, I knew it was going to be the perfect engagement session!
Their Love Story
During a romantic dinner outside in their backyard, by the pool, Philip popped the question, with the dogs as their witnesses. How could Alexis resist such an intimate, personal, and perfect proposal? And now they’re ready to say “I do” at Moon River Ranch in December!
Their Waco Engagement Session
Their lives are centered around their dogs, so these two wanted a place they could allow their dogs and themselves to be comfortable. They also wanted a location that provided beautiful backdrops.
When Alexis initially mentioned her home and neighborhood, I was a little skeptical. That is, until she sent photos of the spots she had in mind, and had permission to use. With beautiful and lush foliage and nice walking paths, this neighborhood made for the optimum scene. Not to mention that their dogs are familiar with the area, helping them to be at ease during the session.
Did I mention that the dogs all had coordinated handkerchiefs? Alexis’s first baby before Philip entered their lives, Pompi’s handkerchief says “I loved her first.”
Georgey, the middle furbaby, had a handkerchief saying, “My humans are getting married.”
The newest addition to the gang is Jack and his handkerchief says, “I do, too!”
Could this BE any cuter? Alexis told me that she had this organized and ordered before they even know what they were wearing to their own engagement session!
Being a typical hot summer day in Texas, we found it was only appropriate to head over to Alexis and Philip’s home for an outfit change and …
… mocktails and a dip in the pool! Plus, seeing that Philip proposed next to the pool and swimming in it is one of their favorite hobbies, it was a necessity to capture them in their element.
I love the series below. In the third photo, her facial expression when she catches her fiancé stealing her drink …
Even the dogs were happy to take a dip in the pool with their mommy and daddy:
When I spoke to this couple about how I could tell their unique love story, and how they wanted to feel when they look back at their photos, their response was,
“We want to see love and laughter that our relationship contains! We love to giggle and smile.”
I believe the series below exudes just that!
Who wouldn’t want to end a session with a dip in the pool! It was the most perfect Waco engagement session, if I do say so myself!
Congratulations to the happy couple and I cannot wait to celebrate your big day in December!
