Oh my goodness, I cannot get enough of these fall engagement sessions and these AMAZING couples I am blessed to work with!! I had so much fun with these two and their adorable dog on a crisp fall evening, and can’t help but think about how lucky I am to get to do this. It is just amazing to be around newly engaged couples, soon to be graduated seniors, and families that want to capture their memories and to get immersed in their stories. There is so much joy involved in this work (if one can even call it that!) and I LOVE that- it is one of my favorite emotions! 🙂 I met Laura at a wedding I photographed earlier this year and she was NEWLY engaged- so exciting! I was thrilled for her then, and so excited to hear from her a few weeks later that she wanted me to photograph her wedding as well- it’s amazing! So we got planning right away, and I just loved getting to know and watch her and Craig together. They are so comfortable together, and there is no fuss…just easy and completely visible love. Both of them are so EASY to talk to and spend time with, and made photographing them a breeze- they were up for anything and totally engaged in the process, which I LOVED! And their puppy…I just am not sure I have seen a prettier dog- and she had all the energy and craze of my Piper, which only adds to the fun! I can’t wait to share them with you- enjoy this beautiful fall engagement and be on the lookout for their beautiful fall wedding next year!!!
This was within the first 3 minutes, and I KNEW things were going to go well! Laura, you are gorgeous!!
