Last weekend was a nice change of pace – I got to take engagement photos of my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law in Southeast Kansas. Big Hill Lake is beautiful this time of year, with the tall stone bridge, sparkling lake, and colorful fall leaves. And my subjects were pretty fun, too. Especially after they got used to that unnatural feeling of acting natural together while someone shoots photos of you. I love how these turned out…it was so hard to narrow them down!
Best. Engagement. Ever. (Except mine, of course)
This past Sunday was a special day for a special couple. Our worship leader pulled me aside about a week ago, asking if I could bring my camera to church on Sunday. Of course! At the end of the service, he announced his girlfriend’s birthday (also in the praise band) and started singing, “I wanna grow old with you” from The Wedding Singer. By the time he got down on one knee, I’m pretty sure the entire congregation was in tears. I’m so happy I got to take part in such a memorable moment.
Photo of the Day: How Time Flies
Five years ago, my boyfriend (now husband) and I traveled to North Carolina. I was excited for the beautiful fall colors along Blue Ridge Parkway and in the Great Smoky Mountains, gorgeous waterfalls, and quaint southern towns. I got all of that and more – most importantly, a gorgeous “rock.” Jerod proposed to me on top of Mt. Craig (the second tallest peak east of the Mississippi, since the tallest peak – seen below – was closed for construction). Five years seems like such a long time, because it feels like he’s always been a part of my life, yet five years has flown by. I know five years is just the beginning of our journey, but it’s been a great ride so far!
Day 282: Love Is In The Air
Here are a few sneak peek photos from Saturday’s engagement photo shoot with Jennifer & Brian at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. I’ve known Jennifer since 5th grade, but it was great to finally meet Brian and see how happy they are together. And despite what they may say, they’re so photogenic!
