any couple what's willing to keep shooting in the rain is my kind of couple!!
briena + rigo were absolutely naturals in front of the camera, all of their giggles and kisses made my job soooo easy! we had to break a few times and wait out the florida rain showers in the car, but they didn't even mind getting a little dripped on! and if you look really close, you can see rain drops in some of the photos hehe.
I love when couples are up for anything, and when clients become fast friends. briena + rigo thanks for making this shoot so fun, and I can't even begin to explain how EXCITED I am for your wedding next year! eek!
couples who bring beers to their engagement session are the best kind of couples. lauren + jonathon absolutely killed their session this week. when I arrived they had already pitched their tent and were ready to go, and we had so much fun capturing their love for camping, craft beer, and each other. their chemistry is undeniable, and I cannot wait for their wedding!!
MJ + Vaughn were my valentine's day giveaway winners, but after shooting with then I feel like I'm the real winner here! I love how these golden hour shots turned out, and we had a blast together (hence all the giggles from MJ). even when we got kicked out of our original shoot location (oops!), these two were flexible and we laughed it off, and to be honest I ended up loving the second location even more than the first! It feels so great to gift these photos & memories to these two, and I'm definitely inspired to do more giveaways!! follow along at @tylee.shay to catch the next one!
winter snow engagement session
these two are so crazy in love and so fearlessly chasing after God and it's amazing. megan & drew met and knew that this was a not only a good thing but a God thing. They will be getting married later this fall (heck yes to short engagements!!) and what I love about these two is their confidence in Christ. they met, they fell in love, they prayed until they knew this was God's plan for them, and they pursued it without looking back.
megan & drew reminded me that God's timing is the best timing. there's no sense in rushing love, but there's also no sense in withholding from it when you know it's meant to be. when God honors a plan, He paves the way for everything to fall into place.
megan & drew, I'm so excited for you two and everything that's in store! thanks for letting me capture this milestone for you.
one of my favorite engagement sessions ever! shout out to lexi & quinten for braving the freezing cold waters! i love getting to do engagement sessions for couples who are fun and fiercely in love, it gets me so excited to be a part of their wedding day!!
yes, it's possible to do an engagement shoot with a beer in hand. in fact, it's highly recommended. gabe & toph thanks for such a fun night of shooting. I had a blast with you guys and I can't wait for the wedding. cheers!
moments like these make me feel so happy to get to do what I do. even if I had to hide in a tree for nearly an hour in cold, rainy conditions, being a part of monumental memories like this make me feel like the luckiest person on earth... ESPECIALLY when it's two of your best friends! ben & kenzi, I'm so excited for you! congrats!!
congratulations to cory & jessica on their engagement! such a fun couple with a contagious energy. it was a pleasure to capture these photos and their passion for one another. best wishes to the both of you! p.s. go blue!!!
