Kate + Sheldon

Hi friends! It's been forever and a day since I blogged and I am so excited to finally catch up and show you guys what I've been up to this Summer!

Today I am sharing one of my favorite shoots so far this year... my sister and her fiancé's engagement session! Sheldon and Kate got engaged in May, while on a romantic trip to Sheldon's hometown in England, and since the moment he popped the question (ok let's be real, since they started dating over a year ago) I was planning and plotting what I would do for their engagement photos. I love working with family because I feel more free to try new things... like an engagement shoot in a coffee shop! We started to O'Henry's Coffee, and ended on a downtown bridge overlooking the sunset on Morris Avenue. I couldn't have asked for a nicer evening, better light, or more attractive subjects. :)

Kate and Sheldon, I am so thrilled for you guys and can't wait to stand by your side as you tie the knot in February! Now here are just a few of my favorites from the shoot:

Hannah + Alan

When Hannah reached out to me last month about her engagement photos, I was so excited to work with her and her fiancé. Hannah and I had never met, but I had heard a lot about her because she is the maid of honor in one of the weddings I'm shooting this Summer! I was especially excited when she asked me to shoot their engagement photos in Tuscaloosa, at Capitol Park and around the beautiful University of Alabama campus, where she and her fiancé, Alan, met. It is such a beautiful area, and one of my favorite places to shoot!

We met on a hot Sunday evening, and began shooting at Capitol Park. Hannah and Alan are so naturally comfortable together, and I was able to just stand back and capture their adorable interactions with barely any instruction. :) After a quick change of clothes, we headed to the President's Mansion for a few photos, and then around the quad across the street. We strolled around campus talking about how Hannah and Alan met, and their upcoming wedding in October. They danced, and laughed, and we all enjoyed the beautiful golden sunset.

Hannah and Alan, thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet and work with you guys! I wish you all the best as you plan your beautiful wedding! Now enjoy these favorites from the shoot!
