Kate has a blog. And her blog is called “That One Girl”. If you know me as That Bride and That Wife then you might understand why I LOVED Kate before I even met her. Putting “That” in front of your name or nickname makes you instantly cool in my book. I’ve had so much fun reading her blog, hearing all about her wedding and how the two of them met.
When Kate suggested we meet up at a park with “giant teddy bear statues” I felt a little nervous.What kind of a park were they taking me to?…
These two taught me it’s best to trust my clients and their instincts because Highland Park is not only gorgeous, it’s filled to the brim with variety and interesting texture and backgrounds. There were benches and bridges and water and trees and flowers and stairs and bushes (I could go on and on!), and I’m so glad they introduced me to this area of Dallas. This natural setting fits the two of them perfectly, since they describe themselves as a “green” couple trying to be environmentally conscious. They are getting married in her hometown, Sherman, TX in the church where she grew up in, First United Methodist, on Saturday, October 10, 2009.
Adam is soooo sweet with Kate, always helping her up or down. We did all kinds of hiking under fences and down by the water, and Kate was such a trooper through it all while wearing high heels.
See how gorgeous Highland Park is? I’ve got “Secret Garden” from Jerry Maguire running through my head every time I look at these two images.
When asked to name three quirky things about themselves, Kate used the word “nerdy”. Apparently after watching the Olympics the two of them were inspired to get their lung capacity tested. Nerdy? Heck no, I think that’s something I would like to try for myself!
Kate created these fabulous letters all by herself using wooden letters and scrapbook paper from the craft store. I asked her if she would be okay with me copying her idea, and I’m thinking about keeping a few sets in my car for other engagement sessions to use as well. She put up a tutorial on her blog if you are interested in making your own!
Kate changed shoes and my draw dropped. Hello fabulous! Don’t you love the contrast between her shoes and his pair?
Turns out the giant teddy bear statues weren’t so crazy after all, although we didn’t get very many good pictures with them since their was orange construction tape and fences all around.
Looking good Kate.
I was originally editing this to be a black and white shot, but when I removed the black and white layer the colors popped right out at me and I realized I liked the color version even better.
And we’ll end with my second favorite of the day. I always love a good nuzzle.
Kate and Adam, I hope to see you again later this Fall. No matter what though, I’ll be following along with all of your adventures through your fantastic little wedding blog. Thanks for spending the afternoon with me, and for introducing me to this wonderful new location.
