Gloria and Patrick’s Love Story
Photographing couples in love never gets old! Watching them be playful and silly, laughing, and looking at each other with adoring eyes makes me so incredibly happy. Seeing them transition from long-term relationship, to engaged couple, to marriage is even better! Read on to hear more!
Gloria and Patrick met their freshman year of high school. They had classes together, and both ran cross country. Their White Rock Lake and Uptown Dallas Engagement Session wasn’t the first time I was able to work with these love birds! I was fortunate to be a part of their proposal when Patrick asked me to sneak in and snap some photos at Goar Park. He surprised Gloria on their way to dinner after what seemed to be an “ordinary day”. It began with a morning run and a trip to the grocery store. She had no idea, and the surprise went off without a hitch! The two were walking on cloud nine!
An Uptown Dallas and White Rock Lake Engagement Session
This time we met up for an engagement session at White Rock Lake and Uptown Dallas. Gloria rented two beautiful dresses from Rent the Runway. What an amazing idea! Patrick was dressed in a dapper suit, and changed into a jeans and a coat later on.
They were relaxed and having fun together, which made my job so easy. We were able to capture many genuine smiles and laughter. We got to White Rock Lake when the lighting was gorgeous, and it was the perfect backdrop for this stunning couple. Gloria and Patrick have long disagreed on the color of her hair – he says red and she says brown! I think in the photos it shows up a gorgeous auburn color, which is a nice compromise between the two (something they’ll do a lot of in the years ahead, haha!). I just adore this sweet couple, and I know these high school sweethearts will have many happy years to come!
