Rachel+Matt engagement NYC | by gary donihoo

Rachel and I had a chance to travel to NYC to shoot Rachel and Matt’s engagement portrait. While there we took advantage and had a mini vacation and saw The Book of Mormon, bumped into a few stars, literally, and was treated by Matt and Rachel to a great dinner at Pastis and The Red Cat. Thanks Rachel and Matt for your hospitality!:)

katy and josh, dallas engagement pictures by carter

One of my favorite things to do with a couple before a wedding is shoot engagement pictures – Katy and Josh came all the way in from Tyler to hang around with me for the afternoon and we got to know each other a little bit. Their wedding will be in Tyler in April and I’m really excited to get out to east Texas and make some pictures.
