Couples Session: Audrey and Chase / by Tess Cagle

I first photographed Audrey when she graduated from UT Austin last year and we had a BLAST running around campus, so naturally I was ecstatic when she and her husband, Chase, asked me to take new photos of them.

I've been crossing off my bucket list of amazingly scenic spots around town and for this particular shoot, we shot at one of my favorite spots in the city: Pleasant Valley Park. The park is located in the heart of Riverside and provides an amazing view of the Austin skyline. When I lived in the area in college, this was my happy place and where I went when I had a bad day or needed some inspiration. I'm so happy we picked to shoot at this location—especially because Lord knows what's going to happen to the park as East Austin continues to undergo gentrification. 

The actual shoot itself went amazingly—especially considering we met at 8 a.m. (my first morning shoot!) and it was the day before SXSW kicked off. So without further ado, here's some of my favorite shots from the shoot!
