Today the weather was perfect in our NC Mountains. We had a full day planned and that included crouching around in the woods like tigers to catch a marriage proposal. Our littles went with us because we had plans to take them to Tweetise after the shoot. Taking our kids to sessions is definitely not the norm but Ryan insisted they would do great, and they did awesome! After our lunch picnic we placed them where at least one of us could see them but be sure they were out of site of Jack and Emily. These kids took it so serious they whispered for 40 minutes even when we said we will tell you when you have to be quiet. They were part of the day so we had to include them in some of these images =). Ryan placed himself in a rhododendron bush with a camo net over his face and body. I got so tickled at him (picture below). We separated so we would be sure to have different angles depending on where Jack stopped. When I heard Emily's voice coming I got all excited...I love surprises! These kind of images are a lot of times our favorite! Real moments. Real Emotions. Once we got the proposal and came out of hiding, we went back to where Emily's parents were grilling out. Congratulations you two! We are excited for you both!! MUCH love.

Happy Friday Friends! Goodness you are going to love this session! We shot Lee and TJ's engagement session in Marion last year near Lake Tahoma. Ryan and I absolutely love when we get this precious time with our couples to grab awesome engagement pictures but to also get to know our couple. This is so important for the wedding day and we adore these sessions! This session reminds me of the movie Dirty Dancing for some reason! I just LOVE it!! These two will say I DO tomorrow and we are super excited to be a part of their day! TJ and Lee's engagement session was also featured on Southern Bride and Groom Magazine Blog!!! You two we can't wait to see you tomorrow! MUCH love...R and J
Finally sharing Walter and Jessica's engagement session. Thank you to Antique Vending in Granite Falls for the use of their beautiful museum for part of the shoot! These two were naturals in front of the camera!! Jessica's bridal shoot coming very soon and finally their beautiful rainy ;) wedding day!!
Its a beautiful sunny Saturday and pretty warm outside so cooling things down a bit with an engagement session we shot last January! It was super COLD outside that day but these two were so fun and didn't let it bother them! We shot Hannah and Matt's engagement session at Matt's Uncles house/land. It was the perfect location for their shoot. We even did a little hunting ;)...Yes! Hannah hunts with Matt! They are so cute!! Enjoy smiling while looking at their images!
Good evening friends! We shot this super adorable and sweet couple at Millstone Meadows Daylily Farm for their engagement session. Of course I completely adore this place and fell in love with it all! From the precious animals hanging around to all of the old antiques sitting about...we were not there during peak daylily season so didn't get to see that beauty. I'm planning a trip there soon! Enjoy~
