Amanda + Kyle - Downtown Austin Engagement

I like to refer to Amanda and Kyle as my 'dancing couple'. That is actually how they met - at a dance class. Since they enjoy dancing I thought it would be a fun thing to incorporate into their session.

The idea behind these first few images was a touch of Hollywood glam along with some Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers thrown in. I love that Kyle brought along his Grandfather's hat too - perfect touch!















They also wanted some photos back at the spot where Kyle proposed to Amanda.













A stop at a local coffee shop for coffee, hot cocoa and a board game was also in order.







Amanda and Kyle, we had a lovely time with you during your session! Can't wait for July 9th!

  11. OK, I havta to go through them now, they are SO DARLING! These are my faves:

    Top row BOTH. Shows your great dancing and what a cute couple, against the brick wall.

    Third row BOTH. Really captures the dancing spirit too with how you're both dressed, very unique, shows off your two faces in both. The first one you're both smiling, the second one is neat and dramatic with Kyle's face down and tipping his hat, and Amanda's cool cool wistful face. I love these pics!

    Fifth row BOTH. First one is so edgy in the alley off 6th, and shows your dancing style again, and the one on the right is SOOOO cute of Amanda and her pretty legs, and real cute of Kyle too with his head looking back at Amanda.

    Sixth row, BOTH. The one on the left the hat covers both of your faces, but Amanda's legs are so beautiful, and it's playful and romantic! The one on the right is WONDERFUL, with the light on Kyle's face and Amanda in the hat, looking up at Kyle with her hands holding his face. This may be my all-time FAVE. The two go together really
    nicely.

    Seventh row, I really like the one on the right with Amanda alone. But the one on the left sets it up. That one looks kind of New Orleans-ish.

    Eighth row, ya'll on the park bench with The pink shoes ABSOLUTELY.

    You two just SHINE OUT with LOVE and LIGHT! I'm so thrilled for you both!

    Hope this helps! Can't wait for July!

    LOVE, JULIE

    P.S. FANTASTIC PHOTOGRAPHER. Elizabeth has so totally captured you two, she is the BEST, hands-down. The pics are so natural, not at all stiff or posed-looking. And all the locations and lighting, amazing. You two could so easily be actors/models!!! Teeheehee!
