When I first met Danielle a few months ago, she showed up for our meeting in the cutest summer dress and a big, floppy hat. I knew right then that I loved her! She was initially wanting just an engagement session, but the more I talked to her and Will, the more I knew that we had to shoot their wedding too! I quickly learned that not only were they the cutest couple ever, but, like us, they love to laugh and have fun! Lucky for us, they agreed, and we can't wait to shoot their wedding next year in Arkansas. In the meantime, we had a great time together at their engagement session!

Andrea and Jimmy are college sweethearts. They met on the balcony of their 4th floor dorm, where they discovered they were exactly 2 floors apart. She was in 253, and he was two floors above, in 453. She knew lots of other girls had their eye on him, but Andrea knew that 2 floors would be the farthest apart they would ever be. Six years later, Jimmy made sure of that when he proposed on that very same balcony where they met!

When Brenda and I were chatting about and planning her engagement session, she knew that she wanted to include her puppy, Nica. Photographing pets is always a challenge, but we love incorporating these lovable family members when we can! Nica was a bit shy, but perfectly behaved. I've learned that the best way to take photos of pets is to be fast! Nica would only look at us for a second at a time, so it was imperative that we were ready when she did.
