Ryan + Sarah | Austin Engagement Photography

I’ve known Sarah for about 11 years now. ELEVEN, y’all! This is back when she was in high school and I was not yet married to her brother. Oh, and before I stole her name. Yup, for about 10 years, Sarah and I have both been Sarah Owens. In June 2018, she will get a new last name that she will then share with Ryan’s sister, who is also named Sarah. Hah!

I will be sad that we don’t share a name anymore, but I am so excited that Sarah and Ryan are getting married. Ryan first met our big crazy family several years ago, and he fit right in. While on a trip to Austin (where they met), he asked Sarah to marry him, and we were all so excited to get the news! When we planned for their engagement session, it seemed only natural that we should head back to Austin where it all began.

We had a wonderful time around Austin capturing both a natural and downtown/urban setting for Ryan and Sarah before they headed back to their home in Arizona.

One of the best and worst things about my job is that I love being able to participate in the engagement, bridal, and boudoir sessions, but I prefer to celebrate alongside my family and friends for the actual wedding day rather that work to photograph the day. So, although I won’t be photographing Ryan and Sarah’s wedding, I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to photograph their engagement and Sarah’s bridal portraits, and I can’t wait to see these two again soon and to celebrate with everyone at their wedding!!
