Martin + Zari | Engagement Session

When I photograph an engagement session, I want to know details about my couple. How do they act with one another? Does he make her laugh? What is their relationship like? I honestly think, that this is what makes an engagement session. Needless to say, my engagement session with Martin & Zari was amazing.

First of all, Zari is the cutest & super sweet! Zari is also a small business owner. She is a hair & makeup guru from, Cherry & Zari’s Hair and Make Up. We have been following each others work for the past few years, so when I received an email from her for their wedding photography, I was sooo happy! Especially because she was engaged to Martin! My husband & I have known Martin for the past few years & it makes us really happy that he has found such a wonderful and sweet girl.

We met in the little town of Gruene, on a Tuesday. Let me tell you, Gruene during the week is totally different than Gruene during the weekend. That is for sure. We pretty much had all the little areas & corners to ourselves, so that was a real treat.

When Zari & Martin pulled out their giant gold & pink balloons with the ribbon, I freaked out, because hello, GIANT BALLOONS!

 Can’t wait to photograph their December wedding at the gorgeous Texas Old Town in Kyle, Texas.

Take a peak at Zari & Martin’s engagement session.

Sometimes I like to look through my camera to make sure I’m getting the shots I have in mind in take. They think I’m not paying attention, oh, but I am. In those moments, my couples start talking & just being are those photos. I mean, can it get any better? Love them!!

This is why sunset is my favorite time to work. That glow. There is nothing else like it.


These black & whites, I’m telling you 😉


Gorgeous Zari! I think Martin thinks so too 🙂


At the end of their session, Martin & Zari allowed me to do a little experimenting with my OCF. So happy we took a little bit of time to do so, because I LOVE the way they turned out.
