Abby & Kevin: Engaged!

Last weekend I had the privilege of meeting up with Abby & Kevin to shoot their engagement photos. I was worried about the weather as I made the 2 hour drive down to southern NY, but after a few stray raindrops, was so relieved to see the soft sunshine peak through the clouds!

We met at a beautiful park, with lots of open space and shooting options, and my heart was so happy with the soft light!

Abby is a photography lover, and has made Kevin go on many shoots before, so they were old pro's by the time they got to me, which made my job extremely easy. It was also easy, because this couple is very clearly in love with one another, and happy to capture their love on film, there's nothing better I can ask for!

Thanks so much for a great shoot, guys, and many blessings to you as you start this new chapter together!

Holli & Tim: Engagement & Family Session!

I felt a special connection to Holli the first time we met. Sometimes you just know when meeting someone new, that you're going to be friends. When Holli called and asked if I'd be her wedding photographer, I immediately said yes, and was even more excited as I heard her wedding day plans, and got to know Holli as a person, not just another client.

I have some pretty specific things in common with Holli, and I've been so blessed by her open heart in sharing with me, and by the Mom she is. It's so true that no one comes into your life by accident, and I'm so thankful that I was able to meet Holli & her family!

Holli & Tim are getting married next month, so to celebrate, we met at their home to take some casual images of them and their children. As they're working to blend two families, I hope these images will be cherished for years to come! The joy in these children overflowed as they interacted with one another, and it was clear to see that even though there may be a bit of childlike resistance to pictures, this family shares a deep love for one another!

Thanks again, Holli & Tim, for having me over! I can't wait for the wedding!
