Claire & Garret are getting married at The Gin at Hidalgo Falls later this year, and you guys I am ECSTATIC about this amazing venue! So when they said they wanted to do their Engagement Session there, I was all about it!
Claire and I first met when she was a bridesmaid in a Wedding I was photographing. We’ve stayed in touch over the years, and we even go to the same gym now!
She is a doll, and I was so excited that she wanted to meet to talk about her Wedding right after her and Garret got engaged.
Most of the time, I am the one doing consultations, but every once in a while Chris joins in on the fun. And this was one of those times. We met at Downtown Uncorked (one of my fave wine spots!) had a few glasses of vino with Claire & Garret and just had the very best time. We laughed and talked and by the end of the evening I was so excited to be their photographer and couldn’t wait for their Engagement Session so I could get these two cuties in front of my camera!
Claire is just a beautiful soul, sweet and kind. Garret is hilarious, a fantastic story teller and a goof ball! But under the jokes, it is incredibly obvious just how much he truly loves and cares for Claire. Together these two make the most precious couple! We get so lucky y’all! Our couples really just are the very best!
This Engagement Session was so much fun. The Gin provided so many places to take pictures. When planning their Engagement Session, Claire had expressed concern that her Wedding pictures and Engagement pictures might look similar if done at the same location…but as you will see and as I explained to her, this would not be the case at all!
Why you ask?
The day of their Wedding, the inside of The Gin is going to be set up for the Reception. So having their Engagement Session at the location when an event is not actually going on allowed us to use the inside in a completely different way than we will on the day of the Wedding.
Aside from that, getting to take pictures in their beautiful Honeymoon Suite and driving out to The Falls was such a treat! It really is a beautiful and unique location!
