She Said, "Yes!"
Within the wedding industry, this time of year is often referred to as engagement season. Valentine's Day has come and gone and bridal shows are in business. Countless brides and grooms are beginning the planning stages of their wedding and vendors are displaying their services and products in glorious and elaborate ways. It's an exciting time! I love attending shows and meeting wonderful couples. I love being able to connect and hear about the love that lead to her saying yes--or to her popping the question. I love love stories.
This year, the end of my pregnancy falls right in the middle of spring bridal show season and the begging of wedding season. Because of that, I made the decision to skip the shows this year. However, I still want to connect, I still want to hear those engagement stories. Have you recently gotten engaged? I want to hear about it. Send me a message and tell me all about that special moment, tell me about what lead up to it, tell me about how your love grew.
In celebration of engagement season, I'm going to share some of my favorite engagement pictures from 2016. It was super hard to narrow down to just one from each session, so many of the pictures are great! I hope this summer and autumn provide me with just as many opportunities to visually tell more love stories.
Michael & Jamie This was shot on the coldest day of 2016, but it's hard to tell. Michael and Jamie are so wrapped up in each other that you can feel love radiating from them
Kenny & Jennifer This couple was so comfortable with each other and they were up for anything I asked. They were honestly so adorable, it was hard to pick this over all the other fantastic images from their session.
Josh & Jessica This was a couple I connected with instantly and they made my job so easy. Every picture was amazing, but I love this one because they are so focused on each other. I love the little shadow of her eyelashes on his nose.
Eric & Dianne What an easygoing couple! It began to pour down rain in the middle of their session, but they went with it. This was taken while under shelter from the rain, and it's beautiful.
Jeffery & Ashley These two were pros. There were crowds of people walking behind me during this shot and they didn't even seem to notice. I am so excited for this couple's wedding, it's going to be a blast! They were so much fun to work with.
Ryan & Jessica I just love how cozy Jessica looks...despite the fact it was over 80 degrees! Commitment and comfort is what I think of when I look at this picture.
Josh & Jessica Take 2 I love that I've gotten to work with this awesome couple twice! This was a styled session and they rocked it.
