Hermitage, AR Engagement Session: Matthew and Annslie

There are times in life when we get to know people when we are young. Then you lose track of them and then later in your life, they are back. For some people it’s family and for others, it’s friends. That’s the way it was with Annslie and I. She and I first met when were around eight. Then, because of moving around with my family, I lost track of her. Around ten or eleven years ago, my husband and I moved back to where I am from. Probably five years after that, I saw her across the room in a restaurant, but I didn’t say hi because I didn’t think she would remember me. I have a bad habit of doing that. Then a couple of years after that, she was at a mutual friends house and she did remember me. She is a blessing and I’m blessed to know her.
A little while ago I was on scrolling on Facebook and came across Annslie’s post where she was announcing her engagement. I was very excited for her. I hadn’t gotten to meet Matthew at that point, but I figured, I would soon. Then I got asked to shoot the wedding. When I met him, I figured out that he was the perfect match for her. Annslie is a very outgoing person and Matthew is quiet and reserved. The saying, opposites attract, proved to be true. I asked Annslie how she felt when they met and she said, she knew she loved him when she didn’t want to spend another minute without him. Now that, I’d say, is true love.

Annslie and Matthew, thank you for letting me be apart of these life changing events. I’m so excited and happy for both of you. I’m glad that you have both found your one and only.

Monticello, AR Engagement Session: Walter and Brandie

I go to an amazing church. When I walked in the doors for the first time, I felt like I was home. Along with that came a great church family. These are some of the best people you could ever meet. I truly love them like I love my own family. Sometimes I get to work with people that go to my church. Not long ago, I got a message from Brandie asking about engagement sessions. We emailed back and forth a couple of times and after discussing it with Walter, they decided they would have me take their engagement photos. I love engagement sessions and I love getting to work with new people. It’s a perk of the job.  I’ve said it before.
When we all got to meet in person the day of the session, both Brandie and Walter had huge smiles on their faces. The day was beautiful, but a little windy. The laughed easily and it was infectious. We had a fantastic time. I could tell by the way they looked at each other that they are in love. It’s almost tangible. It was very easy to get good photos of this couple because I really didn’t have to tell them to do anything. They were themselves and it was truly a pleasure to work with them.
Walter and Brandie, I wish you the best and many years of wedded bliss.

The day was beautiful. Walter and Brandie are people who love the outdoors. They also love the lake. We decided to make that one of our locations. Although it was windy, it was a lovely spot. I even got to see a couple of Canada Geese.
