from the photographer: Ryan and Veronica love a fancy night out! They love to dress up, dance around, have so much personality and know have a good time. They have serious style and wanted an engagement session that reflected their love for each other, their city, and their love for fashion. We had a perfect night running around downtown Oklahoma City, full of laughs and non-stop fun. We started at their favorite spot for coffee, hit up the farmer’s market, and ended on the cutest roof in Midtown. Ryan and Veronica love each other big and have huge hearts. They are the kind of people you feel like you have known forever after about five minutes with them. They never stop smiling and absolutely adore one another. They are a photographer’s dream.
We are LOVING this bright, adorable, and oh-so-stylish engagement at The Belmont Hotel, a historic 1940’s Dallas hotel. Photographer Jenny McCann spearheaded the creative direction capitalizing on the retro vibe of the location capturing the couple’s chemistry beginning with cozy drinks in the hotel to delightful tromps around the grounds. We’re totally into the styling and love the way Ashley’s wardrobe of bold tomato red and lavender silk stands out against the graphic colors of the venue while TJ keeps things grounded with his tailored Mad-Men-esque suit. Check out all the feel-good images by Jenny McCann for some major engagement session inspiration!Click to expand for more
From Jenny McCann: While planning her 25th birthday celebration, one of Ashley’s friends asked if they could invite a new acquaintance to the party. “I know this guy, he’s new to Dallas and needs to make new friends.” Ashley casually agreed saying, sure, why not, there’s going to be a bunch of other people there. Little did Ashley know that upon meeting this tall, dark and handsome “mystery man” they would immediately connect. TJ, who was obviously experiencing the same instant chemistry, did not hesitate to ask Ashley out for sushi and drinks and now a year later, the adventure continues!
Ashley and TJ both loved the idea of shooting at The Belmont, which is a historic 1940’s hotel on Ft. Worth Avenue here in Dallas. We came up with a loose concept; first getting cozy inside the hotel, and then enjoying the outside surroundings. I helped style the clothing to compliment the retro environment while still keeping it modern and timeless. Ashley did a great job with her own hair and makeup and looked gorgeous in the sheer lavender dress and two-toned silk wrap dress. TJ rocked his modern cut suit pulling off the ‘mad men’ look effortlessly. It was a gorgeous day with a beautiful couple in love and we had the best time exploring all that The Belmont had to offer.
We’re loving Mariana and Ian’s engagement session from Madison Hope Photography. Captured at the very scenic Epping Forest Yacht Club, the images are breezy, bright, and dare-we-say sexy? We’re loving the couple’s clean styling and the way Madison captures their relaxed and carefree vibe. Enjoy!

Thousands of engagement sessions have come through GLW over the years, and yet we’re still completely delighted when a truly great one lands in our inbox. What makes an engagement shoot special can be the planned parts like a gorgeous location, or some crazy-on-point editorial fashion choices. Or, it can be a less tangible thing, like that certain, sparkling happiness unique only to an engaged couple. Either way, we’re always in awe of a photographer’s ability to capture the essence of their subjects and this shoot from Natalie Schutt Photography is a perfect example. Maia and Adrian’s SoCal surf shoot has, of course, the breathtaking scenery, but the magic really happens when Natalie hops in the water and captures the couple surfing. We get to see Maia and Adrian totally at ease, totally in love, and totally in their happy place. So props to Natalie Schutt Photography for capturing the epic location, that certain sparkle and some pretty fab underwater floral crown shots too—bonus!Click to expand for more
From the bride: We met in college at UC Santa Barbara through a combination of mutual friends and seeing each other out surfing. Neither of us thought the other was interested so nothing happened for two years. Then we had a groundwater hydrology class together and we started hanging out more and more. Then one evening Adrian asked Maia if she wanted to go watch the sunset at the beach and the rest is history. We love exploring new places together both locally and abroad. Pretty much anywhere that has the ocean, trees, rivers, or some combination of the three is where we like to be. Most of our free time is spent with friends, surfing, or working on projects!
