I was so excited when Ashley asked me if we could do Cotton Mill engagements.  I have been to the famous Cotton Mill in McKinney, Texas many times before doing bridals, boudoir, and weddings, but this was the first time I got to do an engagement session.  And we had a blast.

How did Ashley & Tyler meet?

In 2011, Ashley went out of town to visit her sister in Amarillo.  They attended a Christmas party at the Dalhart Country Club with some additional family members.  Her and her sister-in-law were just about to leave, so she came in to give her sister her purse and say goodbye.  When she did, she saw her sister talking to Tyler.  They were introduced and talked together for the rest of the night.

How did Tyler Propose?

Ashley & Tyler had been hard at work renovating their house for the last four months.  They were out buying steaks to grill out at home for an impromptu date night, and they picked up some champagne to take to a wedding in Austin.  By 11:30, Ashley was so tired that she was resting on the floor, when Tyler asked for her attention.  He told her that he REALLY got the champagne for them to celebrate all of their tireless work on the house.  Ashley goes to get it out of the fridge, just to find the ring box taped to the bottle.  She started jumping up and down screaming before he even had the chance to ask her anything.  He did ask, “So, is this a ‘Yes'”?  Obviously so, and here we are today… ready for their beautiful wedding on June 28.

Cotton Mill Engagements

So, we get there to the Cotton Mill and it is really quite cold (duh! It IS winter…)  =)  But, we had a great session and it was a lot of fun.  I love it when my clients just trust me to do whatever I want.  They said they just didn’t want the ‘typical’ engagement session (I LOVE these people!!).  Check out some of my favorites of the day!
