MOLLY + ROYAL || A Sunset Engagement Session at Laguna Gloria

“Y’all were so incredible to work with and we said it as soon as we got in the car, ‘the nerves went away immediately because they felt like our friends!’”

Laguna Gloria engagement sessions are practically a rite of passage for Austin wedding photographers, and for good reason. This stunning mediterranean style villa is unmatched for elegance and beauty in Central Texas, and makes for the perfect setting for a romantic and dreamy engagement session! 

But when it comes to elegance, beauty and straight up romance, Laguna Gloria has met its match with today’s couple: Molly + Royal! 

When Molly inquired through our website back in March she described the overall vibe of their Canyonwood Ridge wedding day as “light, airy with lots of greenery!” – ummmm, yes please!! 

And they were such a joy to work with during this session! We quickly learned that Molly + Royal are major artists in their own right. Molly is a portrait photographer and fellow Cannon shooter, while Royal graduated with an art degree and has experience with everything from photography to sculpture and everything in between. Yet another reason Laguna Gloria was the perfect place for their session! 

After our session was finished and we went to do our post-engagement session ritual (aka grab some P. Terry’s), Molly texted with what must be the highest compliment we’ve ever received after an engagement session! She said, “Y’all were so incredible to work with and we said it as soon as we got in the car, ‘the nerves went away immediately because they felt like our friends!’” 

We know how anxiety-inducing getting your photo taken can be, and we go into every session with the goal of making our couples feel care-free, connected with each other and comfortable on camera. So to get this text from Molly, confirming how much we helped alleviate those nerves was so meaningful to us! 

Molly + Royal are getting married in May of 2022 at Canyonwood Ridge and we are already counting down the days! Thank you two for having such great attitudes and being so cooperative during this session, and for sharing such a sweet compliment that totally made our day/month/year! 

With all the love,
