Austin, Texas South Congress Engagement Photos by Texas Wedding Photographer Alicia Yarrish Photography

Most people don’t know that I travel outside of Houston, but I certainly do! Many of my couples are planning a Houston wedding while living in Austin or Dallas. I always explain that Houston is probably where their families are and that’s why you’ll love hosting your wedding back home. However, you should absolutely celebrate your relationship where it feels like home to you two specifically! And oftentimes that’s where the couple is living. I’m happy to make a trip to another Texas city for my couples to celebrate with an engagement session there. For Zak and Maddie that meant an Austin engagement session. And nothing seemed more perfect than South Congress engagement photos!

Zak & Maddie | Austin Engagement, Houston Wedding

I connected with Maddie through Instagram. Which as a side note, is one of my favorite places to meet newly engaged and excited couples! During our first conversation, I knew that her and Zak were the perfect fit for my brand. Her enthusiasm for marriage, the excitement of getting all the family together in one place to celebrate, and her vision of a minimal yet beautiful day that focuses on what’s important. She was checking all my boxes and it was like catching up with an old friend!

The Importance of Your Engagement Session

Maddie was very upfront with me by saying they had already done engagement photos (one of her best friends is also a photographer!) so weren’t sure they needed it in their collection with me. Engagement photos are so special and one of the few times in most marriages that you focus on celebrating your relationship with photos. Anniversary Sessions are always available, but the truth is few couples prioritize them. (Something I’m working on changing!)

Your engagement session is practice for your wedding day. You wouldn’t show up to your wedding without practicing your first dance, would you? Or having a trial run for hair and makeup? Photos are no different! It’s an extremely personal process. And while I do have a tried and true posing system, each of my couples fall into it differently based on what feels natural to them. Those are things I need to know before your wedding day so we are using our time wisely!

Aside from me finding out how to pose you within my system as well as what your favorite poses are it’s muscle memory for you. Zak and Maddie will remember exactly how to nuzzle when I say, “Oh, Zak- this is the perfect time for you to nuzzle Maddie like you did on the bridge during your South Congress engagement session in Austin! The one where I almost caused a bike wreck….” They’re going to know exactly how to fall into each other and I’m going to get some extra giggles while looking back on my clumsiness. It’s a win-win!

After explaining the reasons why Maddie quickly agreed and we started planning their additional engagement session!

Planning Their Austin Engagement Session

It took longer than we both had hoped to get their engagement session scheduled due to scheduling conflicts on both sides. We’re both “everything happens for a reason” people. And the day we photographed Zak and Maddie’s Austin South Congress engagement session was perfect! The stars had aligned- perfect weather, perfect scheduling (even Teylor was able to go and assist!), and such a fun session to break up the quarantine loneliness!

I let all my couples know that rescheduling their engagement session is nearly inevitable. The chances of the original date having great weather is pretty slim. I have had some couples reschedule 10 times- so 1-3 reschedules is mild! These are very important photos, and if your timeline allows waiting for perfect weather is more than ideal. After all, these photos will be on your walls, decor at your wedding, and in your engagement album!

We had an absolute blast getting to know Zak and Maddie in person! Teylor and I cannot wait for your wedding day at The Farmhouse– it’s going to be such an amazing day!
