White Rock Lake Engagement Shoot, Dallas, Texas

Kim & Steve wanted me to capture come fun White Rock Lake Engagement Photos of them while they were on a picnic.

Kimberly Clark went on a vacation to Hawaii with her mom to get away from Dallas for a little while. Little did she know she would meet the man of her dreams while there. One evening while hanging out in a Karaoke bar she ran into man named Steve Van Oursouw from Australia. They started spending time together, and over the next several months fell completely in love. Steve flew to Dallas to meet Kimberly’s friends and family, and propose. I was very fortunate that they asked me to do their White Rock Lake engagement photos. We went to White Rock Lake in Dallas and had a great time photographing this special time. Here are some cute photos I was able to capture of them together:

We came across this no parking sign and Kimberly suggested that her and Steve get a photo in front of it. She wanted to tell the world that from now on they are only for each other and no one else will be “parking” in their lives anymore. I thought it was cute idea and took a few shot. They really liked how the photo came out and the blakc and white treatment I gave it.

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.

Matt did a great job shooting our wedding! Found really good candid shots and got pictures of all the little moments that you might have forgotten about after the wedding. Would recommend him for any of your events.

Matthew did a wonderful job capturing photos with my fiancĂ©! 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.
