Galveston, Texas Engagement Session: Shannon + Zach by Kelly Costello

Shannon and Zach first met at an Ol Ags Date Party.  They had each brought their own dates, and were only briefly introduced. A few weeks later, Zach and Shannon shared their first dance (by chance).It wasn’t until 2 months later, at Chillfest, that the circumstances finally allowed them to connect, and they had their first conversations. They were smitten and Shannon was invited as Zach’s date for the next party! They were without question in love and now each other's designated dates for every event.

After some time together,  Shannon one day found herself having a particularly long day at work.  She came home, a bit flustered from the day, to find dinner and flowers set at the table! Shannon was already very pleased with the gesture but was unaware there was more to the plan.  To her surprise, Zach whipped the ring box out right then and there, and asked Shannon to be together forever.  She said YES while still wearing her work uniform and a cute messy bun. A perfect evening they will never forget.

Zach and Shannon chose Galveston, Texas for their engagement session location, and it was a perfect fit! The two were clearly at home on the rooftops and in the streets of one of their favorite cities. Wrapping the session on the beach after hitting the Galvez Hotel on the Seawall was a beautiful experience. The wind blew Shannon’s dress too loud to hear us well, which led to a sweet moment of them together like no one was watching.

Frio River Wedding: MC + Beau Sneak Peeks! by Kelly Costello

Beau Crossed the Road...

Their story began February 9, 2013. MC was out with two of her friends in downtown San Marcos. They had left downtown, and they were walking to their car when a tall man, Beau, yelled at MC, and said "Hey! Don't move." MC looked over, bewildered, trying to see what this man was yelling about. Beau changed tactics and left his friends to run across the street. Once MC saw Beau, she called dibs to her two friends. 

MC thought Beau was going to ask them for help, but little did she know she was meeting her future husband. He told her that he wouldn't be able to leave that night without telling her how beautiful she was. Her two friends swooned, and MC couldn't believe what she was hearing. Ever since, the two have been inseparable and their love has grown tremendously. 

This weekend, MC + Beau tied the knot in one of their favorite places in the Texas Hill Country. The Frio River in Concan, Texas was the perfect setting for a week of festivities that ended with the biggest celebration with all their friends and family. We were so honored to have been there to capture it all along with some amazing wedding vendors. 

Here are some of our favorite sneak peeks from their wedding on Saturday! More to come!
