Lufkin, Texas Elopement | Jessica + Mike

I had the opportunity, wait …HONOR, to travel to Texas to capture an elopement! This was my first, and hopefully not the last time to get to be a part of one.  It’s such a different feeling than a normal wedding day.  There is still tons of excitement and emotion, but rolled up into a shorter time period just makes the senses all the more heightened! And then of course, it’s a photographers dream to get an hour or longer after the ceremony to spend with just the bride and groom for a session. :)

We met up at Jessica and Mike’s home in Lufkin, Texas where I got some images of her jewelry, rings, bouquet, etc. (I LOVE details!), and then they did a first look! I was super excited when Jessica asked to be able to do this.  It’s always my favorite part of a wedding day.  Afterwards, we were off to say “I do’s.”

Jessica didn’t stop beaming all day long! I LOVE this one!  So much happiness in that one image.  After the vows were exchanged, we made a stop at the venue they will be having a reception/party next month, and then walked around downtown Lufkin for a fun session.   Jessica and Mike, I am so incredibly blessed that I could be a part of this exciting day.  Congratulations! And after the road trip with your family (which I feel like I’m now a part of :) ), I can say that I know they are so proud for you and so am I!
