Last year I met a sweet couple, Marshall and Katie, and I had the privilege of photographing their wedding. I fell in love with them right away and LOVED meeting their families. I just thought everyone was so sweet, polite and special. At the end of last year I received a message from Marshall's mom, Mandie, telling me the awesome news that her oldest son, Michael was in love and planning a wedding. A couple of days later I spoke to his fiancé Cierra and immediately loved her laid back personality. When I met her I discovered she is a brilliant as she is beautiful and equally sweet.
Cierra and Michael really wanted a rustic feel for their engagement session so we stuck close to my house and began our shoot at the creek. They had me laughing right from the beginning. I love that they made each other laugh as well!
After a few minutes down by the creek we travelled down the road to a beautiful farm! We shot for a few minutes and then it was time for an outfit change!
While they were changing we had to get this gorgeous ring its own photoshoot!
I love this farm!! I also loved Cierra's jacket and wished I had one exactly like it, mainly because I am a copycat! lol! She looked amazing in her outfits - so did Michael. lol!
Finally the sun began to set and we felt like our time together was finished. Except I had one more idea. There is an area towards the river that has the most beautiful yellow flowers year after year. I have always thought they were canola flowers but I was wrong, they were these delicate little weeds. I have driven by this area for more than a decade and always wanted to shoot there. So we did! I think they were my favorites from the session!!
Now the countdown is on until December 8, 2018 when we photograph their gorgeous wedding at the Events at Tranquility in the lovely town of Adams, Tennessee. I love that venue, and it's owner! I know their wedding will be a perfect day for them and I just can't wait!
