All Photos – Location: The Post Oak Hotel | Photography: Civic Photos

Houston couple Tristan and Rachel, captured by the lens of Civic Photos, are engagement shoot #goals, pure and simple. This beautiful-inside-and-out Houston pair (he’s an academic director, she’s an MBA candidate and former Miss Texas) chose The Post Oak Hotel for their engagement photography session–AND for their upcoming nuptials!–and took full advantage of the luxury property’s many amazing spaces as backdrops. Collaborating closely with his subjects, as he does for with each unique wedding couple he shoots, photographic artist Barett Henry, owner of Civic Photos, brought out the romance and joy radiating from the to-be-weds. Some images are cool and sophisticated, some are flirtatious and playful (that smile, Tristan…no wonder Rachel is crazy about you!!), and some are downright…fire. It’s the perfect union of couple, location and photographer. And it’s the perfect example of the magic that happens when two joyfully in love people allow their hearts to shine through each moment, and each pose. Join us in congratulating Tristan and Rachel on their engagement, and join us on the journey through this gorgeous Civic Photos engagement shoot! Click here to read the rest of this post »
