Confession of a photographer: I still get butterflies when I arrive to a session. I am either eager to meet new faces or excited to reconnect with old friends. And shooting during this season of life has been so sweet. I, too, am engaged & can connect to my clients in a whole new way & it's the best feeling.
When I showed up to Katie's family property along the Black Warrior River in Akron, Alabama on a Sunday afternoon, I was greeted by smiling faces. Nerves melted away with every laugh the couple shared.
I have known Katie since high school & seeing her with Brandon brought my heart so much joy. Seeing someone connect with their person is why I continuously show up to capture people's love stories butterflies & all. This October I will return to my hometown to capture their fall wedding day & after their engagement session, I cannot wait!
Katie's dad built this pergola for her brother's wedding a few years ago & it's where her sister got married last year. So of course this part of the property had to be included in her portrait session.
Enjoy this sweet season of engagement you two!
