Houston Sesquicentennial Park Engagement Photos
Amanda & David
August 23rd, 2014
It was a very Houston-humid Wednesday night in July as we set out for an engagement session. I have begun to prefer shooting downtown as it provides and urban flair to the images. This day, the backdrop was the cozy Sesquicentennial Park, but we started at the graffiti wall near the baseball stadium. Amanda and David wanted images that spoke to their personality and provided an edgy flair.
I met Amanda and David at an open house in Katy earlier this summer. They are getting married at the newly rebuilt Station 3. Station 3 is a fire station turned wedding venue. David’s dad was a firefighter, so the wedding venue was a way to pay homage to his father. We should have called his father to put out the fire that he and Amanda shared during the session. (Okay, that was cheesy, but I just couldn’t resist). Sesquicentennial Park was abnormally quiet, no bikers or anything.
David is not taking advantage of his hidden talent as a comedian. He kept both Amanda and I and moments of near tears with his jokes. As you can see throughout the images we had a good time. We even got a few ducks from the pond to jump in a few frames and provide some genuinely epic shots.
Well, I could go on and on about this session, but you should just scroll down and enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them. The wedding at Station 3 should be a blast.
