They are getting married in June of 2012 in Dallas at Highland Park United Methodist Church, they both live in Oklahoma, he was a college baseball pitcher, she is a recent college grad, and they were high school sweethearts. We started OUR relationship long-distance. Over the phone at least and I was so delighted to meet this couple in person. We anxiously started the day with a bit of an over-cast fright and also we just happened to schedule a shoot at the Ballpark in Arlington during a renovation and a Dallas Cowboy Game (or when it was over and the fans were all exiting the over-sized stadium near by). Needless to say, we were a little confined with our space selections upon arrival at the park. They were texting me and calling on their way frantic about the weather and traffic. I was about to pull plan B out, we I saw a break in the clouds and decided we were going to do it!
Meet Meredith and Andy – two people that I am pretty sure if it HAD started to rain, would have danced and sang in it for the entire engagement session. I was giggling and having a fun time with them as soon as we stepped out of the car. We discussed our game plan, crossed the street and aimed for the fences with our first request. Meredith had inboxed the Ballpark in Arlington and never heard back about shooting inside. Since we didn’t have a NO, we decided to ask for a YES. Aimed with our most persuasive faces and a love story no one could resist, we entered the gift shop to find the park was a complete mess from renovations. So, we opted for the exterior PLUS Andy was getting a little squeamish anyway from their recent loss in the World Series and needed some fresh air. A quick wardrobe change and some gorgeous golden rays of sunlight later, we wrapped up the shoot in Arlington.
