Katie and Dakota. I’ve known Katie for over 15 years, so this one was like photographing a family member’s wedding, which has it’s ups and downs! I wanted to capture everything I possibly could in a new way, especially since I grew up working summers at the Pecan Plantation Country Club, so it was quite a task to re-invent. I focused on the Texas-isms, since I’ve been in D.C. the last 4 years, it felt like coming home and looking for what makes the place so unique. Nostalgia, warmth, textures, and cool temp color contrasts were what I was looking for. The day was a lot more than I anticipated, but in a good way. It kept me working for perfect moments to show the close knit group Katie and Dakota share with their Camp Eagle friends, and all the relatives that feed off their energy. Thanks to the Capps family for everything and inviting me to cover such a special day in Katie’s life. Congrats to you guys and here’s to your next adventures!
