~ARKANSAS ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER~

Ok ok ok if you know Kristen and Trent in real life they aren’t really engaged and this isn’t really their engagement session but I am an Arkansas engagement photographer so I felt like with two beautiful young people that should totally get married I can title my post as such! Love you two!  Ok but really I’m friends with Kristen and Trent and they referred one of their friends (Hello Kiana!) my way for her wedding so I decided to return the favor and offered them a mini session!

 

It was freezing cold and a bit rainy that day so we just decided to stay in and shoot at their cute little home!  I’m so glad we did because HELLO all my feather pillow fight dreams came true! I can promise you next time someone suggests this to Trent and Kristen they’ll probably say no, F…E…A…T…H…E…R…S  EVERRRRRRRYYYYWHERE!!!!!!  But it was sooooo worth it!!!!! We had so much fun playing on their bed, pillow fighting, playing with Ollie, their adorable pup, dancing, reading, making coffee, and lots of snuggling and kissing!

I’m usually not a fan of doggie kisses but I do absolutely adore this capture!

This is what pillow fight dreams are made of! I can’t even tell you how many feathers were all over their room but I can tell you this session was in the fall and they are still finding feathers around their home daily!!!!!

For some reason I just love these ones of their feet all snuggled up together!

Arkansas Fall Engagements at Sassafras Springs Vineyard

Kiana and Riley wanted some photos with their pups but didn’t necessarily want them in ALL their photos. So, we decided that I would meet them at their home, capture some with doggies then we could head out to Sassafras  and capture some fall engagements.  They will be having their fall wedding at Sassafras Springs Vineyard and I couldn’t be more excited!  That outdoor ceremony location with the Chapel Ruins is awesome!

 

 

 

 

Warm Bright Sunny Arkansas Engagements // Courtney and Reeves

Trying to pump out some blog posts from all the work I’ve done all summer and fall! Yay! Courtney emailed me interested in having me come over to Jonesboro to capture her gorgeous wedding day so as usual I gave her a ring.  We clicked instantly! She was so sweet and we chatted all about her vision and what our plans would be! Love those chats! Fast forward a little bit and I invited them to shoot some engagements but seeing as they lived in Jonesboro and I live in Northwest Arkansas we decided to meet in the middle at The Buffalo River.  Let first explain that these two are saints, I had to reschedule on them because I showed up to second shoot a wedding on a Friday (in Tulsa) that was supposed to be on Saturday following day which is when we planned to shoot, then when we were meeting at the Buffalo the river was up (I had no idea….how do you even tell these things beforehand?), there was no cell service, we were driving back up the road separately trying to get a hold of each other.   IT WAS A MESS.  We parked my car at an elderly man’s home, I hopped in with them and we literally gave it a shot in the dark at to where a cool location might be! I’ll say we got lucky! I love how warm bright and sunny these engagements are! Oh and how could I forget the snake by Courtney’s door when we were all wrapped up ready to head home?!?!?!?  So many memories! I’m so thankful these two still trusted and believed in me, because I can’t wait to show off their wedding images!

Kelsey and Weston Engagements | Arkansas Wedding Photographer

Kelsey found me through my friend BJ Matthews of B.Matthews Creative, after he sent my name at the top of his referral list…..thanks BJ! Love you!

I met with Kelsey and Weston at a coffee shop, just like I try to do with all my wedding couples! I met Weston’s daughter there for the first time and she had me hooked, she’s so cute! They expressed at that time they wanted their wedding to be all about uniting them as a family and for their engagement session to be mostly of the three of them.  Done! Their little “K” did so great! It’s hard to take a ton of photos when you are only three!!!!

Updated to add: Check out their wedding day here!
