Couples Session: Amanda and Connor / by Tess Cagle

In March, I took a quick break from SXSW to escape off to Brushy Creek with my pals Amanda and Connor. They are the final couple who received a free hour-long session in honor of Valentine’s Day—and we did their session just in time for their one year anniversary (which happens to be TODAY!) 

Amanda is not only a returning customer—I took her graduation photos last spring—but she’s also one of my dear friends. I clearly remember the day she told me about meeting Connor last year and it was an honor to be a part of celebrating this huge milestone for the two of them. Plus, I’ve never really had the chance to get to know Connor and our session was the perfect time to do that, and witness for myself the incredible chemistry the two share. 

We did the session at the Twin Lakes Family YMCA that’s connected to Brushy Creek. Since moving to Northwest Austin, the 3-mile trail has become an almost daily part of my routine and I have been dying to do a session in front of the waterfall. 

Fun fact: the creek is now filled with bluebonnets—book with me today so we can frolic in fields of flowers while they're still around. (I'm doing a bluebonnet special — $75 for a 30-minute session in the field of your choice.)
