David + Anna | Garden Heights Engagement Session | San Antonio Wedding Photographer

May 04, 2017  •  2 Comments

"We met at work at Northeast Methodist Hospital. I was working as a nurse and he was working as security. As usual, we always had the one aggressive patient, this time an elderly man who was known for becoming violent with nurses. I called a "code green" for security and back up since this particular time this patient had refused to get out of the bathroom, insisted I had broken into his home, and began yelling threats.

In walks David, distracts me, but helps me get this patient back in bed and calmer. Flirted a little here and there, but I refused to go out with him because we worked together (keep it professional, this is not Grey's Anatomy). We distanced ourselves for a while, but then met at a party outside of work, and we both knew something was there. We started dating back in 2014 and soon realized how well our quirks worked together. As far as our engagement, David planned to go to my favorite little Indian restaurant, but it was so busy. The noise level, the amount of people there that day and overall ambiance were not amenable to any romantic gesture that night (don't ever go to India Oven on Friday night for a romantic night, but if you do go, try the sag paneer and the chai). He was antsy, but I thought it was just the crowd. When we got in the car we just started talking about marriage, and out of nowhere, "so, you wanna be my wife?". A normal girl reaction is surprise, and possible happy crying.

I punched his arm, "For real? Seriously though? Now? Wait, what?". Once I realized what happened I verbalized a yes forced through this smile I could not wipe off my face. Between Indian food leftovers and the steering wheel, we just sat in the car, just happy.As far as the engagement session experience... Well I was so nervous. This is the first official, like, photographic documentation of our intent to marry, which will go out to family, friends and be part of our story forever. Add to that a couple of hyper puppies and it was the perfect formula for nerves. I cannot reiterate how nervous I was, and to add insult to injury I had been scheduled to work at a health fair that morning. The one consolation I had was that I knew you would somehow produce good pictures, like a photo fairy Godmother. I had seen your work and was not disappointed with anything that I saw. I was able to line up Kyle and Jill to help with the dogs, and help make us laugh. David was nervous too, even if he didn't admit it. I could tell by how awkwardly he was smiling. The time for the shoot flew by, and I hardly remember any of it, but the result was more than gratifying. I feel proud to send these pictures out and mark the beginning of wedding adventures. Yay!"
