Well, this sweet engagement session definitely is a first for me…because I photographed it exactly nineteen DAYS before their wedding!!! These two booked me right in the heart of winter and really wanted a spring engagement session (which I 100% get!)…but it happened to finally be nice enough just right before their wedding! I absolutely cannot wait for their wedding after what I learned about these two the evening we all met up. They are warm and engaging and have such fun and beautiful ideas for their wedding. They want to make their day so representative of them and exactly what they want, which is 100% up my alley (Michael and I very much did the same thing!).

But something else I loved was how clear it is that these two just want to love each other well, and their attitude of serving each other. I saw both of them be so tender with the other, so careful with their feelings and wishes throughout the session. They are both just so very considerate of each other and those around them, and it’s truly a beautiful thing.

This session took place at Lindsey’s aunt’s farm, and my little country heart was in heaven. It was absolutely beautiful there, and these two let me hike them ALL over the huge expanse of farm to get many different portrait locations, and I believe it TOTALLY paid off, even if my calves were tired the next day!

I can’t WAIT for their wedding in just over a WEEK! Lindsey and Adam, I hope you LOVE these sneak peeks- full gallery coming to you SOON!
