• Tim + Amber | Engaged

I took a break… a long break…. a much needed break. After shooting weddings back to back all summer long and trying to plan my own, I was tired. I had a few little meltdowns….my family may disagree with the “little” part but hey, I made it! After the wedding Michael and I had 4 days to live at home… at OUR HOUSE before we left for the honeymoon and it was the best decision ever.

I think the day after the wedding I took a 4 and a 1/2 hour nap!

I needed a break  from my job,  from the computer screen and from my lifestyle in general. Going to bed at 4am and getting up at 9 is not normal!! So I took all of October off and didn’t have my first session until this past

Monday! It was the perfect amount of time! I was so ready to get back to shooting people! (Only photographers can say that and get away with it!:)

So Monday I had the pleasure of hanging out with Amber and Tim. Let me just say that I LOVE THEM! I met both of them at Jackie and Jason’s wedding last December and fell in LOVE with the Banta family. When Amber emailed me and told me that she was engaged I was thrilled!!! Now I get to celebrate with their family all over again!! I have an awesome job. I love it. Amber and Tim made my job super easy because they just naturally love on each other and the camera loves that! Their session was perfect and I cannot wait to spend more time with this sweet couple at their beautiful April wedding! Enjoy some of my favorites!!

get. it. girl. Amber this is a favorite!!!

Ohhh even though it was the WORST time of the day to shoot….they worked it… well.

Aren’t they just beautiful people?! I have beautiful clients! Now imagine Amber as a bride! oh my gosssh! April can’t get here soon enough!

The end! Remember if you liked a pose or the light or just had a favorite… add it to your DesignBook!
