Alexa and Gaston // Engagement / by Ally Willix

I met Alexa and Gaston at Freedom park on a beautiful afternoon in Charlotte.  Alexa had been there when she was a little girl a few times and I love that we went back here to take pictures for her engagement session with her sweet fiancé Gaston. Their little boy came along too and we did a mini family session at the end! He is so adorable and just may have stolen my heart that afternoon.

I love engagement sessions because they really let me get to know my couples more than email and phone correspondence ever could.  There's something special about hearing the story of how they first met (told a little differently depending on if you ask Alexa or Gaston), watching the way they interact and love each other, and just capturing the small, happy moments of their every day lives.

Alexa and Gaston, you are so wonderful together and I loved capturing your love and your little family! I can't wait to photograph your wedding tomorrow, I know it will be a beautiful celebration!

Love the way Gaston is looking at Alexa in the shot above.  I'm sure that I'll capture the same look of love in his eyes when he sees her walking down the aisle!

How sweet is little Dominique?! I could have taken pictures of him all day.
