This Texas Hill Country engagement, captured by Penelope L’amore at The Contemporary Austin at Laguna Gloria has us obsessed! The oh-so-lovely, Lainey and Tim, were recently married this past October, but their engagement shoot has us in awe. The Hill Country scenery matched with Lainey and Tim’s love for each other makes this shoot really something. Their personalities really come through in the photos! We can’t for our Austin brides to see all the prettiness!

From the bride: “Tim proposed on a canal bridge in Georgetown. He had me totally convinced we were just going to grab dinner with a friend who was in town, and then he stopped me on the bridge and got down on one knee. Our wedding theme was southern elegance with a little boho flair. The colors were burgundy, wine, ivory, gold and LOTS of greenery. One of my absolute favorite moments from our wedding was when Tim and I took communion together for the first time as husband and wife. At our church, we take communion every Sunday, but have always taken it separately as we wanted that to be something we shared in marriage.”
