When I met Jessica and Craig in Covington for their engagement session we got around 15 minutes of photos in before it started pouring rain. We decided to wait it out in my car, the rain didn't stop, but it gave us a good opportunity to get to know each other. They are a fun loving couple who I felt like I had known forever. I love when I click with couples so quickly. It makes spending time with them on their wedding day feel like way more fun than work. We met up again a week later for round two. This time the weather was perfect and I was able to take them to some of my favorite spots. I am very excited to spend the day with them at Neltner Farm for their wedding next month. Here are a few of my favorites from both days. Look how cute that dress is!
Beautiful fall weather and so much love. This one was very special for me. I got to hang out and watch these two compliment each other perfectly.
After a long friendship, with lots of flirting, Kristen and Sean's relationship revealed itself as love. They were drawn to each other and couldn't deny it any longer. I asked them when they knew it was the real thing. Kristen responded, "I knew it was real one day when we were watching TV together, he leaned over to scratch my back. It was the first time we touched in a different way. He said " I knew when I took her for a long bike ride. She had been holding onto me all day. I knew she was the one."
They let down their guards and really felt each other, their hearts opened up to the love that they had for each other. So sweet.
I fell in love with Tina's spirit when she joined a friend and I for a night out last year, she has a very comfortable personality, like someone I have known for years. I met Joe soon after when they invited me out for dinner. We talked for hours about life, love, and following your dreams. We also talked about their wedding...I was blown away when they said they want to have a very intimate destination wedding in Asheville, North Carolina and they wanted to bring me with them. WHOA!! It is a dream for me to be able to photograph people I connect so well with.
For their engagement session we hung around Devou Park where they live and spend a lot of time. It was late in the day, the sun was shining and their love was a breathe of fresh air. Joe adores Tina, she is the gentle spirit that completes him.
I am so happy to be part of their love story.
