I see weddings almost every weekend and those are some of the most romantic moments in the lives of the happy couple. I am so honored to be a part of those moments. But every now and then I get to share in another special moment that's almost as exciting.
Jonny first contacted me while I was in the Dominican Republic for that destination wedding. His needs were a little more complex than my normal session. You see Jonny is from Houston, not New Braunfels, and he hasn't been here for years. So he didn't know where to pull all this off and needed my help. His plan was to take Krystle for a walk along a river after a romantic dinner during their vacation to New Braunfels, and somehow have her fish with a pole that had a ring tied to the end of the string. She needed to reel it in and find the ring, at which point he would drop to one knee and propose. Only she doesn't like to fish, and she really doesn't like to pose for photos for strangers.
There was another little catch. We'd never met Jonny or Krystle and had just a some photographs on Facebook to go on in picking them out of the crowd of river goers along the river that evening.
They kissed, they hugged, they cuddled, they couldn't wait to update their Facebook relationship status. But they had to wait because I wasn't done with them yet. We stepped right into a little engagement session and fortunately, Krystle looked beautiful. "Aren't you glad I made you brush your hair before we got here," Jonny asked her. She was grateful and now it made sense that he'd be concerned about it when he wasn't usually.
Congratulations Jonny and Krystle. And thanks for calling me Jonny. It was fun to set up and fun to photograph. You two are so great together!
