It was a bright, chilly, Wednesday afternoon when I met Caetyn and Henry at TMI Episcopal school in San Antonio, Tx. While this was our first face to face encounter, I felt like I already knew Caetyn. Caetyn found me through our mutual friend of Katherine Swain. She’d seen Katherine’s bridal images and wedding gallery and contacted me when she got engaged. So during our phone conversations, it was easy to chat with her like an old friend. In person, she was every bit as lovely and easy to get to know.
Caetyn told me she and Henry wanted to photograph their engagement session at the school where they’d met at age 13. The two of them were touring the school and competing for the same scholarship. Caetyn remembers telling her mom that she thought he was cute, but she was going to win that scholarship.
She may have been right, but as it turns out, they both won. At 14 they started dating… and they’ve been together ever since. Each are incredibly well accomplished. Caetyn, wears scrubs most days and specializes in helping little ones overcome developmental delays. Henry, a US Army Ranger, is finishing up his final year at West Point, after serving our country in Iraq. Truly, they are incredible human beings, who put the lives of others before their own.
Sunset light, in the Texas Hill Country, is incredible.
Having already photographed Caetyn’s Bridal session at The San Fernando Cathedral, I can honestly say, she’ll take everyone’s breath away. Now, only another 11 months till their winter wedding in San Antonio, when I can finally reveal her bridal session!
Caetyn and Henry, thank you for sharing your amazing story with me. I cannot wait to tell the next step in your journey in December.
