Houston Engagement Photography – Melinda & Kyle at the Rodeo

When planning engagement sessions, I like to come up with places that are the perfect fit for the couple – and Melinda & Kyle knew right away that they wanted to incorporate the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Carnival into their photo shoot! They love to go to the Rodeo every year, and I met up with them there so we could get some fun shots for their engagement photography around the carnival grounds before the show!

Of course, we had to play some games and get some cotton candy while we were there too!

We went inside the exhibit hall for awhile, and made a stop to see Elsie the Borden Milk cow while we were there too!

Thank you again to Melinda & Kyle for such a fun time at the HLSR Carnival! I had a great time exploring the carnival with you, and it was such a gorgeous day!
