First things first... photographing folks with great personalities is a huge plus, and these two are pretty much naturals in front of the camera.
Second, it wasn't quite 'golden hour' light yet, but we found some good light and fun backgrounds around downtown Terrell.
Old storefronts are abundant.

Shady spots are good, but you still have to look at where the light is coming from. I did not have any helpers for reflectors or lights, so I packed very light. Just a fill flash here and there and available light for this shoot.
