The Day

after the girl’s sleepover at our house, I wasn’t thinking and scheduled two sessions that were back to back! I was a little worried about my lack of sleep and how that would affect my energy level. Well, I am happy to report that I made it through just fine and shot two of my most favorite sessions from this fall! Maybe I should shoot with less sleep more often! (Michael, I’m kidding).  Stephanie has been on my “can’t wait to hangout with” list since we started emailing this past summer! She was so excited to be engaged, LOVES pictures and LOVES details! I love her!! The best part about engagements sessions is that I get to meet the bride’s other half! I had never met

Andrew before last Saturday and all I can say is that they are perfect together…….absolutely perfect.  Andrew is so kind and soft spoken, he would do anything for Steph.  Together they are one of the most genuine, sweet spirited couples I have ever worked with…truly. I love them and I left their session being reminded of why I LOVE my job. I get to work with happy, amazing, GORGEOUS couples that are in love! It’s incredible.  Andrew and Steph will be married next July and I wish we could move their wedding to January! July is a LONG time to wait! However, I know it’s going to be amazing and I can’t wait to be a part of it! Steph and Andrew, enjoy a ton of my favorites!!! I’m so blessed to have couples like you two!!

Love these two… absolutely love them.

This was our first spots to start shooting…can you IMAGINE how excited I was when this was one of our first shots?! Oh man! Steph, you’re absolutely gorgeous!


A fav!

How cute is this?! Random donut shops make me happy… and make for cute backdrops:)

Andrew, your serious face is awesome!

An awesome outfit change… I’m always a fan of lace!

oh sweet goodness!
