You know the first time you meet someone and say, “how do you know (insert awesome friend here)?”. That’s how the first of our wedding photography consult went when I sat down with Rebecca and Cody at Kona Grill in Dallas (great food too!!). Turns out, we know a lot of the same people and we have never crossed paths. Small small world. Instead of talking about their wedding photography, we talked mostly about our mutual friends (all good of course). She is great friends with Gia, my partner in crime for underwater photography. She is a hair stylist, he is in real estate, and together they are tons of fun. Rebecca messaged me to schedule their engagement session and mentioned a few places. I suggested a location with a few other bells and whistles the ones she mentioned didn’t have. They were sold. This park is filled with wild flowers, a creek (that runs), a bridge, tall TALL trees, untouched grass, and for their session, big huge white puffy magical clouds. We were about to start and Cody asked if I was going to tell them what to do. I can not hear this question without thinking about the scene fromÂ Talladega Nights … “I’m not sure what to do with my hands…” We played in the wild flowers for a bit, then I spotted a hill and if you make it all the way to end of this post, you will see what I saw. A few scares with bugs, tall grass, slippery rocks and dangerous good looks were the rest of the session. I quote a few more movies. They kissed a few more times and Cody said he would need to watch some more movies before the next time we saw each other so he could keep up with me. I was born with a photographic (no pun intended) memory and I can remember the strangest things. My husband calls me a walking encyclopedia of useless information. Yep, that’s me. Rebecca and Cody, you are awesome and it was fun to hang out and make great images with you!
