It was lovely to spend time with Mara and Mark for their Cooper’s Landing portrait photography session. Intimate engagement sessions like this always feel like a collaborative exploration. We found rustic bridges, scenic river views, and an eerie selection of boats stuck in the ground.

I loved Mara’s choice of outfits for this session! A fun red dress paired well with Mark’s rugged plaid look. Later in the session, Mara broke out a super funky and colorful jumpsuit! These outfits looked so great against the spring backdrop of fresh green growth along the Katy Trail!

Our last engagement session at Cooper’s Landing had such a different feel… it’s amazing how we are able to capture so many different backdrops in the same place!

These two are planning their wedding for 2021 in Texas and I know there are great things ahead in their future!
