Shooting Riley and Brock’s lakeside engagement session was such a treat! The two met in high school during the summer before Riley’s sophomore year and Brock’s junior year. They met through friends, but Brock might try to tell you that she slid into his DMs.
As a couple, they are both pretty simple people who just enjoy spending time together. They have done long distance for many years so they cherish any time that they get together. Their dates usually consist of eating Mexican food, exploring new restaurants in Dallas, going on walks, going to the lake, or playing a mean game of Mexican trains with their families. They simply just have fun together and are usually down for any sort of adventure!!
They dated for three and a half years and then took some time apart in college for about two years. Brock never stopped pursuing her, even though she pushed him away many times. He finally bothered her enough that she decided to give him another shot, and we are all happy she did! The couple officially started dating again in January of 2021 and got engaged in July! I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to capture the proposal and engagement party! Their proposal was truly such a special moment filled with so much love!
We started their session in downtown Tulsa, shortly before sunset. The couple wanted part of the session to be more formal, with Brock in a suit jacket and Riley in a blue dress with heels. After enjoying some time together downtown, we moved to a nearby lake. This couple loves being by the lake, and since their proposal happened on a family lake, it was important to have water views in their engagement session! Riley changed into a beautiful white dress, and they even had a surprise visit from the lake pup who resides nearby. As the sun started to set, and the sky turned a cotton-candy pink, we popped champagne and celebrated!
Riley was absolutely gorgeous, and glowing during her session! She and Brock were all smiles and couldn’t stop cuddling up with each other. It was so sweet to photograph!
One of the best parts of being a photographer is getting to see my couple’s love story unfold on camera. Having the opportunity to capture the proposal and engagement session has been such a pleasure. These two are so photogenic, the camera just loves capturing the magic between them! I am so excited to see the next step of their love story on their wedding day! If you are looking for a wedding photographer in the Tulsa area, make sure to get in touch!
