Samantha laughs as she recalls that she and Robert first met on MySpace. They were in the same town—Victoria,Texas—but attended different high schools. And they were YOUNG. So young, in fact, that they were not allowed to date. Samantha was not allowed to date until she was sixteen, so as soon as she had her sixteenth birthday, Robert took her out (after spending time with her parents, of course!). The couple enjoyed dinner dates at the Olive Garden and Chili’s in town, and also had fun at high school football games.
Samantha and Robert met each other early in life, and they realized they each had personal growth they needed to go through on their own. They parted ways when Robert headed off for college. However, they reconnected, and when Samantha headed to Texas State, Robert transferred over to be with her.
Their time in college at Texas State only deepened their connection, as they supported each other through the obstacles of college life. They currently share a life in Austin with their giant golden doodle and small malteepoo.
For Samantha and Robert’s session, we headed out into a gorgeous park where we could capture them just loving on each other. I love that Samantha wanted some photos without shoes on! She is so bubbly and positive and embraces the moment. Robert is a bit more reserved in his personality, and the pair balance each other out in the sweetest way. Samantha and Robert, it was such a joy to capture your engagement session! I can’t wait for your wedding in 2018 at Vista West Ranch!!!!
