I’m a photographer based in Houston, TX that specializes in sophisticated wedding and high school senior photography.
Cypress engagement photos at Cy-Hope in Cypress, Texas are always a favorite of mine. This one was special because the Morales family has such a special place in my heart. Sarah contacted me a few years ago when she was a high school senior. I had the pleasure of capturing her senior photos! Fast forward a year or so, I then had the distinct honor of photographing her sisters wedding! Now, Sarah is also an RGP bride and I couldn’t be happier! Sarah reached out earlier this summer to secure me as her wedding photographer but was still looking for the perfect venue. Once she and Trainor decided to have their wedding this December at The Gin Hildago, it all became official. My associate, Aly, captured this engagement session for Sarah and Trainor while I was recovering from sinus surgery and I was so excited to edit such beautiful images for this lovely couple!
Trainor and Sarah met on campus at Texas A & M University while studying. Trainor noticed Sarah while he was with a group of friends and asked everyone he knew who that girl was so he could ask her out! From their first date back in November 2020, they have been together every moment since. They knew that God had brought them together. It was only fitting that their engagement session took place at Cy-Hope where there is a bridge with a gorgeous, mossy oak tree since Trainor popped the question under a tree!
Sarah and Trainor became engaged on September 4th, 2021 under the Century Tree on Texas A&M’s campus! Sarah was completely surprised and said Trainor did a beautiful job! He lined the pathway to the tree with candles and had a sword arch. Trainor invited all of their closest friends and family to be there to watch and celebrate this glorious union. Oh, and Sarah said YES!
Trainor is an officer in the army and will continue his career there for about 6-8 more years! Thank you, Trainor for protecting our country! He is also a history major and loves to teach. In the future, he hopes he will be a teacher and a football coach at a high school! Sarah is currently working a part time job as a barista while she finishes up at Texas A&M University studying education. She also wants to be a teacher! And what a great one she will be! She is very passionate about psychology, and would love to teach psychology to high school students.
When they are not working or studying, Sarah and Trainor love to watch movies and TV shows together. They enjoy a great meal out, love to read to each other and play card games. All in all, they just love doing life together and it shows! Their love for each other is infectious.
Congratulations, Sarah and Trainor, on your engagement! I am so honored to be able to capture your wedding day at The Gin Hildago. I am so excited for you both and can’t wait until your big day this December!
