I've driven by this tree nursery a million times. It's on the way to my church, and I've gone to my church 3-4 times a week ever since I was in high school, just with the various events I'm a part of. One day as I was driving past it, and the sun was going down, I realized it would make such a beautiful location for photos! So I did what any photographer would do - find some people to style and model for me as soon as possible.
Enter Kristyn and Spenser. They were engaged to be married and needed some engagement photos, so it worked out perfectly. I asked her to model this burgundy dress for me, and she asked if she could wear the floral dress. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm obsessed with florals. So I definitely said yes. I even made a bouquet out of artificial flowers for the session! It was absolutely perfect. Even more than I had envisioned. I just adore the way they look at each other, don't you?!
As promised, part two of Linsey + David's session by the lake, and IN the lake. Yup. We got in the water. Soaking our clothes in the lake is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to do at my sessions. Don't worry. Fall is practically here, so that'll put an end to those. Too cold. But next summer, you better believe I'll be getting in the water again.
I'm absolutely obsessed with this purple dress and that golden light. All I can say is, go extra for your photos! Buy that dress you've had your eye on, but had no reason to wear it. Wear those shoes you never wear anywhere else. Get your hair and make up professionally done! And be up for ANYTHING to get the photo. You will not regret the results.
I've known Nicole since grade school. And now she's getting married next fall and I'm lucky enough to be the one to shoot her wedding! She and Josh started dating in High School and the day before 4th of July. So this shoot was absolutely perfect for them. And I loved getting to make all the silly jokes about how their "love was on fire" and the "spark between them."
