Engagement Session at Heritage Park in League City, Texas
Houston Wedding Photographer
The story of Crystal and Kenneth
As photographers, weddings are among the most special occasions that we cover. Here is the story of Crystal and Kenneth who shared their engagement photo-shoot with us recently. The engagement shoot happened on the 21st of November this year.
The story unfolds, as recited by Crystal in an idyllic setting- the gym at Deer Park. Crystal wore gear from her alma mater, Syracuse University at the gym so Kenneth was under the impression that she was an athlete in training. One day they ended up side by side on a treadmill and got to talking. He asked her if she was preparing for something and she said she loves to eat, but works out to stay in shape. As fate would have it Kenneth is a chef who loves to eat and works out to stay in shape. Kenneth says he knew right away that there was a certain spark between them. The conversation then led to them going on, finding common ground and then on to them falling for each other.
Kenneth had planned a perfect proposal in Hermann Park when out on a stroll a week after Christmas. He even informed the families in advance and had their wishes as well. The rains came down and it seemed like it was just not going to be possible, so Kenneth popped the question a day after Christmas on the couch when they were being all morbid and talking about the futility of life in their pajamas! He went down on one knee right there and said, ‘I wouldn’t have my life any other way, or change a thing, because I have you.’ It was genuine, intimate, and damn near perfect.
Crystal had no make up on, was in her most comfortable clothes, talking about random things with a glass of wine in her hand, and was completely taken by surprise, a good one. Kenneth’s plans were ruined by rains, but when he spoke to his mother, she apparently told him that when the time was right, he would know.
The wedding is set to happen on the 13th of October with the reception at the Bell Tower on the 34th. Crystal, by her own admission is not a great planner of things, so she’ll have to work extra hard and is not as fun as it seems, being oftentimes overwhelming. It will be worth it, she says, when after it all she gets to call Kenneth her husband. She says that she is most excited about being able to share her love with all those who care about her first. Also to see the look on Kenneth’s face as she walks down the aisle, of course!
The one thing that Crystal would like to give as advice to all couple who want to get an engagement shoot done is to consider the height differences between the couple as she is over a foot shorter than Kenneth and to plan the clothes and set up accordingly. She also advises future couples to be prepared to step outside their comfort zone and trust the photographer to make them comfortable through it.
