Mayfield Park Engagement Session | Austin, Texas | Cole + Michelle


Austin Engagement Photographer | Photos by Yaz

You'd never know from these pictures, but the evening of the engagement session took a turn when the park we were supposed to photograph at was closed for repairs. So, I did what any professional would do and photographed around the Parking Lot!
 

How They Met:

Michelle would often fly out to Red Bluff, California to visit her best friend whom she met while in the nursing program at UMHB. It was during one of those visits that Cole noticed photos of Michelle on their mutual friend's Instagram and decided to stop creeping, and instead, reach out to her directly. At the time, Michelle thought he was too young (he's only a year younger than her) so she dismissed it and moved on. Two years later, a beautiful man appeared on her Instagram feed and she scrolled all the way to the birth of his page to like a couple of his photos hoping to let him know she was watching. He messaged her within an hour and their relationship took flight. They maintained a long-distance relationship for two years, surprising each other on special weekends and holidays. It only got more and more difficult to say goodbye each time they had to take a return flight home, knowing that it would be months before they'd get to see each other again.

How He Asked:

Somewhere along the way, they became best friends and as time went on, they couldn't imagine a life without one another. They started talking in November 2016 and two years later on Thanksgiving 2019, Cole + Michelle along with their family held hands and spoke about what they were thankful for. When it was Cole's turn, he nervously gave his speech, looked into Michelle's eyes and asked her to be by his side forever. Once Michelle graduated from the nursing program, Cole finally made the move to Texas.

 

Cole + Michelle, you two are super sweet, and I'm so bummed I don't get to follow you to California to photograph your union. I know it's going to be an unforgettable event filled with the love and joy your friends and family share with you. Maybe we can have another tiny-but-mighty drink when you return?
