Engagement photo shoot with Michael and Andrea.

Michael and Andrea taking in the beauty of the Dallas Arboretum. Luckily the sun came out just in time for their engagement photo shoot.

I've known Michael for a little over three years now and was recently introduced to his beautiful fiancé, Andrea. Michael and I used to coach at the same ice arena and became great friends immediately- mainly because we were both into photography. Michael is a real estate photographer and runs his own photography business called Photography4MLS. (If you know of anyone trying to sell their house, check out his work. He's amazing and highly skilled at what he does.)

It was a privilege and an honor to photograph these two. Their wedding day is coming soon and they can't wait for this special day to arrive. Best wishes to my two wonderful friends, Michael and Andrea.

I love it when clients aren't afraid to climb a wall and stand on it to create the perfect photo opportunity.
