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.
