This is Alex and Kyle and their amazing engagement session.  They have such a sweet spirit about them.  Kind.  Sweet.  Loving.  Peace.  Love everything about them.  Oh, and they like wine, too.  That makes them good friends of mine.  :)  They are planning a gorgeous outdoor garden wedding at Rivermont Collegiate and I cannot wait!  Picture this:  cream, blush, nude, champagne, soft, elegant and a touch a whimsy.  Eeep!

Oh goodness, I just loved this family sooooo much.  They were incredibly sweet and I can’t wait to work with them again.  Oh, and they chose a HUGE canvas wall collage.  I can’t wait to see it up on their walls!

I love how Heidi styled their session.  Lots of textures and a bit of color thrown in for good measure, too.  We choose to have their session at two different locations.  A few people in their family liked the green grass and a few people liked the field so I said, hey, why not capture them in both locations?  We did a few at my favorite location with trees and greenery then we headed to the field.  I love how much love they have for each other.  It’s definitely evident in my favorite images below.

These kiddos didn’t have any problems smiling for the camera.  We played, we laughed, we sang.  It was pretty epic.

And this lovely little lady was sooo sweet.  She laughed so hard when daddy tossed her in the air!

Laughing and tickling pretty much happened about every other minute.  ;)

And this image of the mom and dad make me smile so big.  They were married on the beach a few years ago and wanted a few updated pictures of them together.  How could I say no to that kind of picture?  It’s simply stunning.  Some of my favorite images are of parents showing their love!

This beautiful couple is Kimberly and Curtis.  Let’s take a moment to stare at the love for each other.  Done, yet?  Nope.  Now?  Okay.  I’ve been working with Kimberly for months now on their wedding plans.  We met earlier this year and hit it off right away.  Get this:  She’s planning an outdoor wedding with the reception in a barn.  Did you hear that?  Totally my style.  Burlap, lace, mason jars, the whole shebang.  I can’t wait!

Curtis proposed to Kimberly by writing her a little note.  We incorporated that into their session by having him read it to her again.  Some of those pictures are on my Facebook page as sneak peeks.  We also incorporated things that they loved to do such as fishing and bike riding.  The theme for their wedding is a bit vintage so I was able to arrange having an old bike at their engagement session.  It really fit who they are and I loved how it turned out.  Did you notice the flowers she’s holding?  Those are wildflowers and their wedding will be filled with them.  It’s going to be gorgeous!

Here are a few of my favorite images from their session for you to take a peek at.  Please enjoy!!
