Engagement Session at Eleanor Tinsley Park in Houston, Texas photographed by Alicia Yarrish Photography

I’m a morning person, but that doesn’t mean all my couples are. So I’m always extra appreciative my couples trust me! Trust me to not only pose them but to set their alarms way earlier than they ever would on a weekend! Luckily now that it’s Fall sunrise isn’t nearly super early. Even if it doesn’t feel like Autumn in Houston yet! All that to say- if you love Chis and Carrie’s engagement session, sunrise might just be for you! 😉

I could tell these two were so excited about their engagement session they didn’t care about the time!

Houston Engagement Session | Eleanor Tinsley

The first fifteen minutes of any session is really important to me. More often than not that’s the first time I’m meeting a couple in person for the first time. Whether it’s a proposal, engagement, or anniversary session. I like to use those moments really wisely to get a feel for what’s most important during our session time and the best way for me to make that happen. And believe it or not, it’s different for every couple!

I spoke with Carrie on the phone a few weeks prior to her Eleanor Tinsley Park engagement session. From that, I felt like we were going to work great together! Sure enough, the first fifteen minutes confirmed that. The three of us had the same goals: to get lots of photos with variety as quickly as possible so we could get out of the heat. 😉

And one of the most perfect places to do that? At Eleanor Tinsley Park, of course! There’s the skyline, opportunities to sit on benches, white gravel to give some seriously gorgeous light, and plenty of flowers and foliage. Truly a dream for engagement photos.

Houston Engagement | Chris and Carrie

I always love talking about how my couples met, but Chris and Carrie’s story started off in the best of ways. Carrie told me, “Chris is convinced that we would have met no matter what with how our lives played out.” Isn’t that so sweet? He’s from New Braunsfels and she’s here in Houston. When couples end up in one place, from two, I automatically assume someone moved for the relationship. That wasn’t the case here though! Chris moved to Houston for work so he’s convinced even if they didn’t start dating when they did… it would have happened eventually since they are in the same friend circles. Hearing the confidence as Chris talked about Carrie like that was just about the sweetest thing!

Another sweet thing during their engagement session? Their willingness to be outgoing and truly showcase their personalities in their engagement session as we roamed through Eleanor Tinsley Park! Being in front of a camera is in no way natural. That’s why I spend a lot of words and time guiding couples so they feel comfortable. Although some poses I’ll let you know it’s not going to seem comfortable or natural, but it’ll look great! Regardless, it’s hard! Chris and Carrie didn’t shy at all with my camera though. They actively made each pose their own which allowed us to get the perfect glimpse into their relationship (and how fun they are!).

Chris and Carrie, thank you so much for hanging out with me this weekend! It was an absolute pleasure and I’m so excited for your Emery’s Buffalo Creek wedding in April!

P.S. This is just part ONE of Chris and Carrie’s Houston engagement session! Check the blog next week for their second (just as gorgeous) location!

    I couldn’t help but laugh a little at “he’s a handful!” He was great in front of the camera and his personality shined and made it so easy to capture Chris and Carrie’s relationship! It was such a blast and I can’t wait for their wedding at Emery’s Buffalo Creek!
