An Ethereal + Romantic Engagement | Memorial Park | El Paso, Texas
For all of my Orange is The New Black lovers, Lindsay is Taylor Schilling's doppelgänger & I couldn't help but point that out as soon as we met. She instantly said "I get that ALLL the time! So I dressed up as her for Halloween one year!" Seems fitting!
Rob + Lindsay showed up & I was blown away by how effortless they were together, both adventurous souls but completely & undeniable completely about one another. Laughing, cuddling, + enjoying each other as we explored Memorial Park. It was only perfect that as we were using the park to the fullest, we found a tree that is shaped like a heart if you stand juuuuuust right.
Upon hearing that these two got engaged on the Swiss Alps (holy wow right!!) I knew that we had to put a little bit of extra excitement into their engagement portraits (at Memorial Park here in El Paso, there are plenty of hills that we hiked up to get to each of these locations) so as we made it to the back of the park with the mountains & a huge tree, I asked them if they'd be willing to climb a bit & hop on - they were both super up for it even in their best clothes! I'm sure we had the whole park watching us at that point but it was so fun to see them be up for just about anything to get the shot & it turned into absolute magic! 💛
