In life you meet that one person that completes you. You always want to be with that person. They are constantly on your mind. I think I just met that couple. Deedee and Manny, you two are so perfect for each other.
I got in touch with this Austin couple through Deedee’s sister. A while back I had volunteered my photography services for a Make-A-Wish Foundation RGV Event for this beautiful young lady Messalinda Anzaldua, who’s wish was a winter themed quinceañera. Deedee’s sister Erica is a coordinator with the Make-A-Wish Foundation Rio Grande Valley and was helping at the quince. Well, after meeting me and seeing my work, she contacted me letting me know that she had a sister who was engaged and looking for a photographer. [Volunteer, it’s good for you!]
Months later, here we are standing on the top of this rock at the Austin 360 bridge photographing the beautiful Deedee and very handsome Manny Garza on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The couple was so much fun to work with and great to talk to. Sometimes I forgot that they were my clients because we all got so lost in conversation.
It was most definitely a fun Austin engagement session. We met at the Austin 360 Bridge, then traveled to Jo’s Coffee downtown Austin to photograph at the the famous I love you so much wall. Then we finished the session at the Performing Arts in Austin Long Center.

I recommend Ben 110%! Ben is awesome. He was our photographer for our engagement session and wedding (Stephanie Rios assisted and is great, too). Ben is a professional in every way possible. He’s detailed oriented, skilled and takes the time to get to know you. I had several vendors at my wedding and Ben was by far the best, easiest person to work with. Ben can direct you on how to pose, but can also take excellent candid photos. Book him!

Melody is the sweetest person you could ever meet. There is something about her voice when she speaks to you. It’s almost as if she speaks in song; very gentle and pleasant to the ear. Her visits to my office are always super fun. We would talk about everything from church to relationships and music. Melody is such a special person and Mr. Edgar is a very lucky man to have put a ring on this beauty.
This engagement session was so pushed around that we never knew when it was going to be set. One day we finally we chose a date and got them done. Let me tell you..this couple is a very good looking couple. Edgar was sharply dressed; he was so “GQ”. Melody, I believe can model any look and that day she pulled off her two outfits flawless. These two fashionistas are truly meant to be!
The session took place at the Villa De Palmas Venue in Alamo, Texas. It was my first time photographing at this beautiful hacienda. I knew it existed but I never got a chance to book a session there but I finally did. They gave us an hour but ended up taking about two hours or more. The place was so huge and has so much to work with. We are extremely grateful to the owner for allowing to photographing at her beautiful home. The images are the result of this special engagement session for Melody and Edgar.
