Houston Engagement Session by Photographers Skeen
May 10, 2012

I am going to really give myself away as a the biggest blogging nerd ever in this post. You've been warned. Because lovelies, we are looking at the engagement session of the voice behind Pretty Shiny Sparkly and her soon-to-be hubby (ummm how gorgeous are they?!) captured by Photographers Skeen (who just happens to be the other handsome half to Kendi Everyday). Ahhh! So many fabulous people in one post my fingers just want to go on an adjective-induced typing frenzy, but instead I'll just send you to the full gallery of fabulous and try, trrrry to keep my nerdiness to a minimum, but it's going to be hard because this shoot is ah-mazing!

From the Bride-to-Be... I met my fiancé Houston on the first day of medical school, when he introduced himself as my tutor (in anatomy, no less). It felt like gravity. Sparks flew, and six weeks later (after his role as my tutor ended), we went on our very first date. Fast forward nearly four years, and I am a style blogger at Pretty Shiny Sparkly about to graduate from medical school, and Houston is a resident in orthopedic surgery. We chose these two spots for our engagement session because we love contrast. The water feature area was where Houston proposed, under the guise of shooting an outfit post for my blog — so we went with soft, romantic and relaxed. Then we decided to play dress up at the River Oaks Country Club, where I went with a leopard top and bright red high-low skirt, and Houston donned a coat and slacks (with boots, of course).

Our engagement session was shot by the lovely husband and wife team, Photographers Skeen. Blog readers may know Bryan Skeen's better half as none other than Kendi Skeen of Kendi Everyday. We are so excited to have them capture our upcoming wedding, which will be another pairing of contrasts: rustic and glamour.
