Have you ever had one of those evenings when you just let yourself be “up for anything”, without a step by step plan, and just let yourself see what happens? Sam, Spencer and I had one of those nights together! We met up at Crooked Tree Coffee house, and decided to just walk the area for photo spots! The area has so much history, with beautiful homes, and colors, so I knew we wouldn’t have a problem with finding great locations! We wandered through the neighborhoods, and as you’ll see, we found some INCREDIBLE walls, which worked out just perfectly! About half way through the shoot, Spencer mentioned how much fun it would be to go down to he and Sam’s favorite date spot, S. & D. Oyster Company, and since it was only a block away we did just that! Little did we know that our adventure would get even more interesting…Scroll through the loveliness to hear how!
Around this time, I noticed some very large men walking our direction. Naturally, I assumed they were just going to walk on by and cross the street. Even more naturally, I was wrong. Those huge men walked right up all in my space and asked “are you guys taking pictures?” … (obviously, im holding a very large camera and they’r kissing in public) “yes sir!”, “will you please step down to the other side of the black suburban?” (weird) “sure!”
We watched and waited to see why these large men with earpieces had asked us to move…speculating of Pro Golfers, Jerry Jones…the usual. But when Spencer loud whispered, “Guys! It’s George!” I froze in sheer excitement. Sam and Spencer were cool enough to respond when George W. said “Hey guys! How are y’all doing?” and actually waited for our response…8 feet away. Of course, there was a small muscular man all up in my space, again, which kept me from taking a photo… and we waved like small children as they drove away…So did George, Laura of course waved like an elegant southern Queen. For the rest of the evening, we would share awkward pauses followed by…”DANG IT! Why didn’t we ask for a picture!!!” Because George totally would have. Sam and Spencer both graduated from A&M and as the great tradition goes, class rings hold a lot of Aggie pride!
Sam and Spencer, thank you for being up for anything, rolling with the punches and trusting me to lead you around an old neighborhood all evening. You guys are such a blessing to have as clients and I am so anxious for the big day! I wouldn’t have wanted to share our fun adventures with anyone else!
