Hi Friends!
When preparing for an engagement session, our hope is to create a session that allows the couple to say comfortable, focusing on things they love, taking an adventure, and hopefully capturing a glimpse into who they really are individually and as a couple. It is quite a task because unlike a wedding where things are naturally happening non-stop, and engagement session usually has it where I have to tell them what to do the whole time. 
When Katie shared with me that Forest had proposed to her on their sailboat, the whole story sounds so romantic and sweet that it seemed to be a perfect setting for their engagement session. Katie shared with me..  "i had just gotten off of work, and was really tired, but he wanted to go sailing, so how could I say no to such a sweet man. Little did I know this little sailing trip would be the best day of my life..." 
Katie and Forest, I had the best afternoon with you two. Thank you for treating me for a little sailing ride and glimpse into your love story! I know the wedding is going to be amazing, and looking forward to it in just over a month!! YAY!

Much joy!
alea

Hi Friends!
This session was a perfect little picture of summer! I met Ellen and Dave at their favorite parks to hike with their puppy Cayenne, and no more then 5 minutes in, I could see exactly why it was their favorite. Spectacular views with a deep breath of fresh air, and two people who adore each other made for a perfect for an a summer evening. 
Ellen and Dave, it was truly one of those sessions that was more fun than work and for that I have you two to thank!! Hope you enjoy these photos and  certainly can not wait til the wedding!!

Hi Friends!
With nearly two shoots everyday for the last week, my body is feeling a little bit like I have been running a 5k. that good tired and sore.  and with this week not over yet, im definitely pushing through to the finish line, with a happy satisfaction every time I check something off the list. 
I am so excited to blog and share Emily and Sam with you. I met the two of them for the first time at their engagement session which always adds an extra element of wanting to get to know them while taking pictures. But, these two were a breeze to take pictures of, and I loved them together. So fun, light hearted, and adorable. They live in the loveliest yellow house right off the park. We enjoyed a lovely stroll and chatted about how they met, how Sam proposed at the botanical gardens, their wedding plans and how they get work together everyday. 

Sam and Emily, thank you for such a fun afternoon. I loved getting to meet you both and lady, kitty, and turtle. Just from a small time together, I already know the wedding is going to be blast! Can't wait til April!

Much joy!
Alea

Hi Friends!

I am so excited to share my dear friends Katie and Ashley. I met Katie a few years ago while working a wedding together and have always just adored her floral creations. Since then, we have worked together at some of my favorite weddings, met for a many lunch dates, and some behind the scene flower making together. We have chatted about getting together for some photos of her and her sweetie for a long time. So, when their anniversary came around this time, it allowed for a perfect excuse for an impromptu shoot in their darling backyard with tons of hydrangea, a putting green, and a peach tree. Oh, did I mention a peach tree?! In their backyard? I had such a blast, and these two are truly some of biggest hearted, amazing people know. So, just too fun and such a joy to get use my camera to share these two hearts. 
Hugs Loyds! 

Oh, I did want to mention that there is a second half to this shoot that I am going to do a separate post for because of its amazingness it deserves its very own, so stayed tuned soon! 

JOY!
Alea

Hi Friends!
I often get asked what makes for an awesome session, and the answer is very simple. A couple that is 100% in love with each other. It won't matter how comfortable they are in front of a camera, or what they wear, where we go, or what things we bring, it comes down to the love they share because that connection will show. So, to make your session easier especially if you both are nervous or weary of the experience, just remind each other that you will get to hold hands, laugh, hug, smooch, so it should feel like you two filled to the brim because you are both totally into each other. ;)

I was so excited when Alyssa wrote to say she and brandon were engaged! I met them both at Alyssa's sisters wedding, and I knew it was just a matter of time. These two are both teachers, and we excited chatted about the many many summers ahead that they would have off together to work on their new home, having a couple months where they both get to sleep in, hanging out at the pool together, go abroad and work at a scooter shop situated right on the beach you know all the perks of being teachers. 

Alyssa and Brandon, I had so much fun with you both. The botanical gardens and running around the park was perfect because of how easy you two were to be around and photoing two people who were clearly over the moon for each other certainly made my job easy! 

Much joy!
Alea
