Sam & Nia Rader, Engagement Shoot, Wills Point, Texas

Sam and Nia had been sweethearts since high school when Sam proposed to her, I was so happy when he asked me to be their Dallas engagement photographer.

Sam and Nia Rader are from a small Texas town called Wills Point, it is located about an hour’s drive outside of Dallas. When Sam asked me to be their Dallas engagement photographer, they already had a good idea of where they wanted their photos to be taken.

Since they both met in high school and had been together since they wanted to celebrate that part their relationship. They first wanted to go to the city park where they frequently spent time together and getting to know one another. I took photos of them sitting on the park bench, playing in the playground and swinging together. They are such a cute couple and compliment each other extremely well. It was such a pleasure to photograph them.

After the park we went to the Wills Point high school football field and took some photos out there. They wanted to make sure they got some photos of place where it all started. That’s where I took the photo below. After we had been there for a short time and the sun started setting, they just stood up and started dancing on the field in the sunset. I absolutely love how this photo came out and they do too. I feel I was able to really capture their love for one another and show how pure it is. Standing there, they look like high school sweethearts.

Matthew did an amazing job with our wedding. Our phones are wonderful these days and they are able to capture the small moments in our lives – but having a pro for something like a wedding is crucial. We were so thankful to be in the professional hands of Matthew on our big day. The shots that he captured were truly special – and he did so with such ease and calmness. We absolutely recommend his services for any occasion.

Matthew did a wonderful job capturing photos with my fiancé! They are so natural and beautiful. He has a great way of making you feel comfortable during the shoot — which comes through on the camera. He really captured some sweet unstaged & authentic moments. He has an amazing eye for composition and light. We will treasure our proposal and engagement photos for years to come.
