Groom-to-be Ryan and I met in 2000 while playing on the Hendrix College soccer teams. And I must say, after four years of daily practices, weekly trips crammed onto one bus, and partying together, I couldn’t ask for closer friends than my Hendrix soccer teammates! Now 11 years later I was very excited to photograph Ryan and his beautiful fiancé, Saretta, for their engagement portraits down in McKinney, Texas. Despite the rain that started to roll in, we got some great portraits of them in a replica of a Croatian village. Who knew you could find such a thing in the middle of Texas?!?!
