Tate and Michelle

My sister is getting married in nearly exactly a month! I had the honor of shooting their engagement session.  I knew it would be good because we are all so comfortable with one another.  Whenever I give photos to clients, I always try to include the quirky ones too.  This shoot was no exception.  I feel that those are the moments that define a relationship. They may not be perfect, but they are true. And I’m all about honest photography.

 

Tate is one of the best things that I’ve seen happen to my sister.  He’s so many things that she’s not, and vice versa. The common joke is that Michelle is marrying someone exactly like me. He’s also really goofy, as you can see in the photos.

 

It’s been such an honor to get to know him over the past few years. I’ve seen him grow during that time.  Emotionally and spiritually.  I think he should be about done growing physically!  I’ve seen him realize what it takes to be a man worthy of a woman’s love.  He’s made difficult decisions in order to make her feel safe in their relationship.  So we welcome him with open arms and are excited to see where God takes the both of them.

Wayne and Leanna

Such a sweet couple to spend the day with.  I couldn’t get over the perfection of this day or the simplicity of their love. It seemed to flow over to everyone who attended. Here are a few snippets of their lovely day.

Sam and Fernando Engaged

My dear friends Sam and Fernando are engaged! Of course, Fern was a bit skittish when it came to photos, but part of my job is to change my clients’ perspective on themselves.  One of my favorite aspects of my job is when I get to make my clients feel comfortable in their own skin, and usually they don’t even realize they are changing throughout the shoot! This is where great humor and peace come in handy.  Check out how cute they are.

The Morgans + 1

Meet the Morgan family. The other night, we went out for a little shoot on the beach. We saw so many things: a little lady with a flash tattoo dancing on the beach, a little old man who photobombed some of the shots, and a ton of sea gulls! Lucas didn’t like the sand. He can’t say it yet, but he’s really excited about his little sister coming in January.  And  you could probably guess…Alex loves his photo taken.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
