White Rock Lake Engagement Photos | Jasmine and David's Engagement Session | Ellen Ashton Photography

I am SO excited to share Jasmine and David's beautiful engagement session!

I met Jasmine from a Facebook group for entrepreneurs last year and I knew through our email conversations that she was my kind of girl! 

Jasmine is the lovely lady behind the amazing fashion, beauty, and travel blog Jasmine Elias (click HERE to view her website).

I was so thrilled and excited when I saw via Instagram that Jasmine had gotten engaged to the love of her life, David. 

Photographing these two was literally the easiest things. I, mean, they are literally so precious!

These two are so fun and so incredibly in love. Seeing them interact with each other warmed my heart in so many ways. I always ask my couples how they met and I adored Davids response! He has so much admiration for Jasmine and it's so clear to see through the photographs that the love they share is a deep bond. Seeing people who truly love each other and so excited to spend the rest of their lives together is truly a contagious kind of joy.

It was amazing getting to hang out, joke around, and laugh with Jasmine and David as I captured their engagement photos. 

Not even the rain could keep the love they share from shining bright. 

I hope you all enjoyed this session as much as I enjoyed capturing it! Make sure to check out Jasmine's Instagram to see all her lovely work! (Click HERE for her Instagram).

Much love,

Brent And Carley's Downtown Dallas Engagement Session

I am so excited to share with you guys this precious engagement session taken right in the heart of Dallas. 

I met Brent and Carley via the internet and met up with them for coffee to discuss taking their engagement photos. I knew instantly that I for sure wanted to be apart of and capture this special time in their life. 

I enjoyed hearing all about their wedding day plans as we sipped on coffee and chai tea. This is such a treasured season in life and getting to hear all their preparation for when they become one makes my heart smile with joy! 

These two are truly the cutest and the sweetest!

Their genuine love for each other shines in each photograph. I LOVE it when couples are relaxed and themselves in front of my camera and these two were just that. 

We photographed the first portion of Brent and Carley's engagement session in the Bishop Art District. This part of town is a vibrant little neighborhood filled that all types of art galleries, boutiques and my personal favorite, emporium pies!  



I love it, I repeat, LOVE IT when couples choose to have a casual look and a dressier outfit for their engagement session. 

Part two of Brent and Carley's engagement session is to die for! I absolutely adore the romantic setting of a city skyline and that dreamy glow from the sun. BUT most of all I love the twinkle in their eyes. It just gives me all the feelings! 

I just can't get over how sweet they look! Aren't they just adorable?? I can't get enough! 

Sometimes the last few snaps on my camera are my favorite. 

We were about to part ways, but decided to snap a few more images agents this baby blue wall, and I am so glad we did. This is exactly what I love about being a photographer. Taking those last few impromptu shots really completed this beautiful, authentic and romantic engagement session. I always say, "the best images are the ones that just happen." This statement still rings so true. 

As always, much love and many blessings,
