Where to begin? Rebecca and Jacob are like family to me, so this engagement shoot was incredibly special. So many ways to describe them as a couple: fun-loving, easy-going, hysterical (Jacob would be a comedian if he ever decided to quit his lawyer job), and all around amazing people...just to name a few. We started our afternoon in a beautiful field in Franklin, then moved on to the Loveless Cafe (a favorite local and tourist spot in Nashville- if you're ever in the area, be sure to go) for a cup of coffee and some really great photos. They kept me entertained the whole time making my job incredibly easy:) Rebecca and Jacob, thank you for letting me be a part of your engagement! I can't wait to see all those wedding details in place next August!
My love for photographing Ansleigh is pretty obvious I think. Besides the fact that I've been photographing her since she was 3 months old, she has the most adorable face and continues to become such a fun personality to be with! She is officially 3 and I still cannot get over just how big she's gotten in the last year. Stephanie, thank you so much for letting me document her life...I can't wait to see her again next year!
Meet the always fabulous Angela Shultz! She is a woman full of life and energy (as you can easily see). She's also an incredibly talented performer with an amazing voice. She's coming out with a new show in just a month that you will definitely not want to miss...Enjoy the preview!
This blog post is actually really hard for me because it's supposed to be a preview and I honestly want to show you every single photo we took at Adam and Leighanne's shoot! Obviously, I had a great time:) Adam and Leighanne are very good friends of mine. We met shortly after our move to NYC (at Adam's 30th birthday party actually) and have been friends ever since, so I was thrilled when they asked me to do a shoot with them. I loved the idea of doing a "love shoot" (a name you hear given when you need a name for a couple shoot that's not centered around engagement, wedding or maternity photos) with them and loved even more the way they embraced the fun of the day! We started our time with a milkshake at La Bonbonniere in the West Village, ventured around the Meat Packing District and then worked our way uptown to the Hudson River Park with some red balloons for some really fun photos by the water (one of my favorite places in the city). They laughed, flirted, pretended to be serious when I asked them to and I loved the whole afternoon! I wasn't kidding when I said it was hard to just show you a few, but here's my best attempt...
I've known Emily and her family for 6+ years now and I feel like I am part of their family, so I'm particularly excited about this shoot. I loved getting the news that Emily and Stuart were engaged and was thrilled to be a part of this time with them! Schedules fell into place allowing Stuart to come up from GA and me to come down from NYC for this perfect fall afternoon engagement session. We spent our afternoon in downtown Franklin with all of it's charm. And while the shops and cafes are enough to hold your attention here, they followed me to the outskirts too for some really fun backdrops (silos, weathered buildings, fields, and more...all the things a NYC girl misses out on these days). Needless to say, I loved this shoot! Emily and Stuart, I am so happy for you...enjoy the preview!
