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.
Yesterday was Nathan and Marcy's wedding day at Gambill Farms!! Eeeeeek! We absolutely love these two. We met Marcy several years back when we shot her sister Megan's wedding. This family we truly love. So many of our clients turn friends and its such a awesome feeling. For their engagement session we wanted to incorporate Nathan's love for music and just being outdoors. A rustic laid back feel. Enjoy!
Catching up a bit here and there on blogging. Bailey so beautiful and sweet. Our afternoon was a bit warm that day and a tad buggy....she didn't miss a beat! I absolutely love her blue floral heels! Enjoy~
To say we loved shooting this session is an understatement. These two not only are adorable but so in love. We met Jill at our church several years ago and instantly adored her beautiful voice. Ryan cries every time he hears her sing. Every time. Her voice and presence are beautiful and shines. We had to incorporate their new pup, and love for music in the session. These two met in college. "I was the singer and he was the sound guy" in Jill's words. We are thrilled to be documenting Brad and Jill's wedding tomorrow.
A DIY back drop we all worked on including the bride and her sister, a beautiful bride, perfect bloomed trees, and lovely sunshine! SWOON!

Tomorrow is the DAY for these two!! Ryan and I cannot wait to capture their love story on camera. We met Jennifer and Joe last Summer at the Apple Hill Orchard for their engagement shoot! The weather was perfect and these two are just as fun as they are beautiful! A huge thank you to The Apple Hill Orchard for allowing us to use their beautiful property. Moms and Dads this place is such a great family outing...take the kiddos and pick your own apples! They sell delicious goodies in their store as well! Looking forward to tomorrow! Much Love ~
