When my brother, Shaun, and his fiancé, Sabrina, asked me to take their engagement photos in Austin, I about peed my pants (I’m not professional, let’s be clear, but I’ll jump at any chance to photograph a special moment like this). I had so much fun running around Austin with these two – from downtown Austin, to Hotel San Jose, to the State Capitol and Lady Bird Lake … there was a photo opportunity at every turn! Here are just a few of their Austin engagement photos.
His socks! I mean, could these two be any cuter? It’s not possible.
There’s really no other way to say it than to scream it from the rooftops. My brother is engaged! I am so happy for these two, I can’t even stand it. I’ll skip the engagement story, because it’s not my story to tell, but it was full of romance and – in true Shaun fashion – was planned out to a tee.
I was sitting around the dinner table with my family when we got the call. I screamed, jumped up and down, and cried. My kids were so confused. Colton was wondering what I was doing. Kelsey came over to the iPad and asked what was happening. When I told her that Shaun asked “Beena” to marry him and she said yes, she started to smile. In fact, it was the first thing Kelsey said this morning. She rolled out of bed and said, “Mommy. Shaun and Sabrina are going to have a wedding.” My heart melted.
You always dream that your brothers will grow up to be successful, smart, normal, healthy people and you never really know who they are going to marry. But with Sabrina … we all scored big. She’s the most loving, caring and beautiful girl and the best part is, she loves Shaun so much. I know she would do anything for him. And him for her. I am over the moon happy and apologize in advance because there are probably more emotional my-brother-is-getting-married-posts to come.
Congratulations you two. I can’t wait to celebrate your happily ever after!
