So today’s post is all about some engagement pleasantries. If you’re a blog friend ‘o mine, you know that I love love LOVE my esessions, like right down to the core. When it comes to celebrating a ring and a big day to plan, I’m all about documenting it. New to the ole bloggity blog? Check out my post on why I love them so much. After reading it, you might just be down to agree. They are a must for brides, for sure.
I met Matt & Jenny at one of their friend’s property. As I drove up the winding gravel road that was lined with trees, I started getting excited. Then I passed the gazebo strung with hanging lights. Then the barn drooping with age (so beautifully, might I add!). I was starting to officially get stoked.
And then I saw the house. Ohhhhh the house. If objects could speak, this place was just begging me to shoot all around it. The green shutters and the brick walkway were framed by authentic stacked stone fences that were slowly being enveloped with moss- ombré shades of green that had me weak at the knees. Ombré does something to my soul.
As if it couldn’t get any better? Matt & Jenny hopped out of their cars with their pups in tow. Her- in her grandmother’s white coat and he- in plaid. Another speaker to my soul: plaid.
You might think that was the kicker. The thing that made this shoot skyrocket from better to “oh-golly-gee I can’t wait!” Oh no. It gets better. This esession was like an onion. Infinite layers of awesome.
You see, they drove two cars. It befuddled me at first. Why ride separate on this uber-awesome day of love?
Jenny smiled widely when she explained the props wouldn’t fit in one car. She had books, and blankets, and her grandmother’s old carpet bag, and outfits, and everything vintage that fluttered my heart.
Oh Jenny, where have you been all my life?!? ; )
This whole session was fab. From meeting their kiddos (a.k.a doggies) to photographing inside this charming home, I was loving everything I was seeing. My eyeballs were freaking out. Truth.
I’m just tickled to be sharing.
Without further ado, let’s hop to it. Image love to add to your week.
