This Brushy Creek Park Austin TX Engagement Session was beautiful! Amanda and Lewis were so much fun to photograph. The weather could not have been more perfect. When we arrived at the Brushy Creek we were thrilled to see Amanda and Lewis’s attire! We love that Lewis wore a jacket and he had a very stylish European look. It helps that he is actually European, German to be more precise. Amanda looked STUNNING! She truly has a face that belongs in a magazine. She did a great job with her accessories and her make up looked fabulous. By now you might know that we have a little crush on Maris Malone Calderon’s Makeup Skills.
We are really looking forward to their wedding in April this year!!
From Amanda and Lewis:
Lewis and I met October of 2011 in Oklahoma City at a restaurant called Republic. We chatted at Republic, and then we all headed over to another bar called the Sip. After a great night, my friend Brittany and I were looking for a cab and then out of nowhere Lewis pulls up and offers us girls a ride. I remember Brittany and I looking at one another wondering if riding with a stranger was a bad idea..but what the heck he was cute, sweet and had a nice car!
After months of seeing one another out and about, we decided (thanks to my friend Arlie) to have our birthday parties together. My birthday, March 19th and his March 20th. It ended up being the best birthday I have ever had! Our second date consisted of eating sushi and drinking wine on his patio until 2 am. He shared his stories of escaping from Germany and then eventually coming to America. I loved our conversations. I loved that he loved his mama and I loved that he always found the best in everyone..including me. I went home that night and that was the last time we ever spent a night apart. I knew then that he was the man for me and that everything in my past had led me straight to him.
We made our way to Berlin, Germany in September of 2012 and I met his parents for the first time. My parents also joined us in Spain and met his parents as well. It was a wonderful meeting. Lewis and I then headed on to Ibiza, Spain where he proposed on September 19, 2012! That day still makes me giggle everytime I think about it. Lewis was smiling and dancing around all morning. I asked him several times what was going on and he kept saying, “I am just so happy that we have great weather today!” We got in the car and headed to dinner at Amante beach club. Lewis decided to take the scenic route… Which ended up being hilarious because the scenic route was unpaved roads and huge craters that looked like they were going to swallow our little car! We could not stop laughing! As I walked into the gorgeous restaurant, the hostess led us to our table for two, which happened to be right next to the ocean. As we were toasting to an amazing trip, I turned around to Lewis on one knee. I was too overwhelmed with emotion to hear or remember all the sweet things he was saying. All I managed to do was wrap my arms around him and say YES!!
Lewis is, without doubt, the man I want by my side for the rest of my life, and I cannot wait to call him my husband.
