I am so excited to share with you guys a true “Texas Hill Country” enagement shoot! I met Kaci last year when she graciously shared her talents and did hair & makeup for our Tuscany in Texas wedding photography workshop models and remember hearing about her really awesome boyfriend….who 8 months later asked her to be his forever! I sent Kaci a facebook congrats (all the exlaimation points!!!!) and was so excited when she contacted me to capture their love story and engagement photos at one of her favorite locations – a horse ranch in the hill country with her horse Izzy! I had a great time meeting all the horses, meeting their other fur babies (3 doggies!) and of course, meeting Fernando! It’s easy to see these two make each other smile and Fernando puts such a light in Kaci’s eyes and makes her laugh so easily and genuinely! Wishing you two a lifetime of laughter and adventures together! Thanks for having a great afternoon with me in Dripping Springs!! – Jessica
Tell us in a few sentences how you two met!
Fernando and I met at a friends Halloween party. We were both dressed up, myself as Edward Scissorhands the feminine versions of course lol I had always wanted to be him since I do hair and makeup after all. Nano got invited late to the party so he improvised and painted his face like a skeleton. I approached him to tell him how great his face paint was totally expecting him to say his girlfriend had done it…to my surprise he said he had done it himself. I spent the rest of the night talking and kicking his butt in pool. wink wink lol
How did you choose your date & wedding venue?
We chose our date because it is Halloween weekend so close to when we met. We chose Tulum, Mexico because we both love the outdoors and any body of water. I had always dreamed of a beach wedding and our families are both spread out so we thought if they were going to travel it may as well be some where beautiful. Fernando says If we had gills we’d get married underwater haha
How long is your engagement?
How did you choose your engagement shoot location?
We chose the barn that I ride at because it’s so beautiful and peaceful there. He says it’s my happy place and although he doesn’t ride he enjoys being there while I do and relaxing out of the city. Oh and…duh horses!
What’s your favorite thing to do together?
We do a lot of activities but I would say wake surfing or boarding probably is our favorite.
How did Fernando propose?
He took me to see the lights at Johnson City. I had been wanting to go. I pretty much invited everyone we knew and so not to ruin the surprise he didn’t say anything. That ended up being good because they were able to set me up for what I thought was a picture little did I know was a picture of him down on one knee.
How did you (he) choose your engagement ring?
He only really knew that I wanted something “timeless”. I genuinely wanted him to pick it out and wanted to be surprised by when he proposed. So he only knew what I didn’t like and that I like solitaires.
What’s the part of your wedding day you’re most excited about?
Seeing my sweetie at the end of the isle and dancing the night away!
Congratulations Fernando & Kaci!! Wishing you two a lifetime of happiness and adventures together!!
