Bride Kristen planned her engagement shoot herself—and it shows. She knew she wanted a rustic, homey feel that would stand the test of time and bring her and hubby Josh joy whenever they looked at their photos. Well, what better place to make timeless memories than a 100-acre family farm on the outskirts of Houston that has been in her family for decades? We should add that this lovely spread of land also happens to be the very site where Kristen and Josh will build their family home once they are married. Beautiful. Kayla of Simply Love Photography tells us that Kristen put as much thought into the e-session’s props, as its location: “One main item was an old wooden window frame that was hand-painted with floral designs. This window was in her room when she was a child and she has held onto it for year and years. She added their wedding date in wooden numbers to the window to have as a keepsake for their home once they are married.” Yes, that is a tear that just welled up in your eye, honey. Ready for the full sob? Here’s what else Kayla revealed to us: “Josh was involved in a very tragic accident in 2006 where his truck was completely totaled. His legs were severely crushed when the truck hit a tree, and he was not supposed to be able to walk again. After much dedication and rehabilitation he is almost fully recovered today and has the opportunity to start a new beginning with the love of his life”—Southern belle Kristen, who stole his tough cowboy heart. We wish this lovely, loving, lovable couple a full life of happiness. Thanks so much to you both, and to Simply Love, for sharing your photos and your remarkable story with us.
