Raya & Jonathan

I am about to head out the door for a day spent at IKEA furnishing my workspace! But before we go, I wanted to share one more session for the week! Meet the ever-so-in-love Raya and Jonathan! As soon as I stepped foot onto the property they chose for their engagement session, I knew I was in for a treat. The property is owned by a man Jonathan used to work for several years ago, and it's phenomenal. It's modeled after a European style village complete with gardens, bridges, fountains, and a stunning library. There's even a full sized chapel on the grounds that was copied from the plans of a medieval chapel in Italy. I had no idea a place like this even existed in Houston. It. was. AWESOME.

Getting to shoot here was special to Raya and Jonathan because Raya's mother is German, and Jonathan has traveled extensively in Europe. Getting to have a European vibe in their engagement photos seemed to fit these two oh so well.

Raya and Jonathan, you two were so much fun to be with and shoot! I adore the way you love each other, it's so joyful! And I'm just dying at the fact that I have to wait until May to photograph you again! Until then, enjoy a few of my favorites!
