Houston Skyline Engagement Session at Eleanor Tinsley Park | Houston Wedding Photographer - Alicia Yarrish Photography

Seth & Marla

Have you ever met two humans that you just instantly love without even knowing them all that deeply? That’s Seth and Marla! After connecting via Weddings in Houston, I chatted with Marla over the phone last December and knew right away I wanted to meet Seth as well! I remember I was sick for a good while and we couldn’t meet up until January. I’m so happy they were patient with me getting better because to me- meeting them in person was worth the wait!

Not only did our photography styles mesh, but I also found out Marla and I have the same favorite breakfast goodie- avocado toast! And to top fate off the coffee shop I chose, that happens to be one of my favorites in the loop, is also Seth and Marla’s favorite coffee joint. I already knew Seth and Marla were good people but that was the universe telling me I was supposed to photograph these two cuties for sure!

Planning their Houston Skyline Engagement Session

Location, location, location

If you’re a Texan you know that it’s quite possible to have all of our “seasons” in one day. Or in one hour. Spring is also usually pretty raining in Houston specifically. So planning a Spring engagement session in Houston can be a bit tricky! Nevertheless, the first step in planning any great engagement session is determining location!

My engagement sessions always consist of two locations for two hours where you get to wear outfits! I like to keep it nice and easy- 2, 2, 2. Most locations lend themselves to certain days or time while others are more flexible. So it’s very important that I understand the look you want to make great recommendations on locations and seasons.

Marla really wanted a more manicured garden look and some skyline sprinkled in. And of course, I knew the perfect spot for a Houston skyline engagement session. Seth and Marla were even willing to wake up early with me to accomplish the look and feel they wanted that goes right along with my style.

Choosing Your Engagement Session Date

Next up- choosing a date! This seems easy, right? Well, if you ask Seth and Marla it’s easier said and done. I think by the day we actually photographed their session we had rescheduled 5 times! Which honestly, isn’t out of the ordinary.

Your engagement photos are so very special and you don’t want to settle for less than ideal weather. The mood of the sky greatly affects the overall aesthetic and feel of the photo. As an example, mostly cloudy can be difficult to look light and bright. Do I have tricks up my sleeve for your wedding day if that’s your given weather? Absolutely! However, my approach to engagement sessions that we control when we shoot. So let’s wait for the perfect day!

These two also had COVID going against them. During the height of the pandemic, it was against the law for me to photograph as I was not deemed essential. So for everyone’s health and interest, we rescheduled until after the quarantine.

Once again, though the stars aligned! After the quarantine, we got the perfect day and all of us knew those five reschedules were for a reason!

Having Fun at Your Session!

I have one rule at my engagement sessions- have a blast! Once again, there was no exception with Seth and Marla. We had a great time and I walked away gaining two great friends! We walked away with great inside jokes too- “that’s my favorite dumpster in Houston!”

Seth and Marla, thank you so much first off for the delicious rosé- it was so good! But also for opening your personalities up to me and my camera. It was so great getting to know you further during your engagement session and I cannot wait to capture your “I Dos!”

Don’t forget to check the blog next week to see their second location! Spoiler alert: it’s just as gorgeous as their first, featured below!
