Oh how I adore Nina and Tyler! Nina and I met at an event professionals networking event and just totally hit it off! Little did I know it would lead to beautiful engagement photos 🙂 Nina works as a hair stylist at Urban Betty Salon, and Tyler works for Whole Foods. They’re just my kind of couple – down to earth, sweet, fun, adorable, HILARIOUS, and in love! Nina was hoping to hire me to shoot their wedding, but I was already booked (don’t worry, the amazing Suzanne Pressman will be taking the reins!). So we just knocked out their beautiful engagement photos at their venue, The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in southwest Austin. I was really digging Tyler’s sharp blue shirt and Nina’s coral pink dress and awesome boots! And for some reason, I really liked his watch and her wrist tattoo, so I had to get a shot of that. It became one of my favorites!
The best part of the shoot was at the very end, when the super nice security guard pointed out a mother owl guarding her eggs. Nina was absolutely in love, because she is quite the owl-lover, and now is the proud owner of a professional print of Ms. Owl! I just feel like she was a little gift from the universe. They were an absolute joy to photograph and we’re totally going to be friends once everything calms down after their beautiful April wedding. Here they are!
