Lindsey + Quentin // Engaged

I love proposals.

Photographing them does make me nervous though, like way more nervous than any other kind of event. The kind of nervous where you kind of forget what you're doing & lose your ability to give direction or think or speak. Maybe it's trying to keep the secret & seem discrete while keeping my excitement at minimum [I'm not good at that].

But as nervous as I was, I think Quentin probably had me beat. 

With the help of Lindsey's sister, Kelsey, he had been planning this for a long time & if you didn't know it's a pretty big deal to ask someone to be yours forever. Thankfully, he pulled it off wonderfully.

His location choice. His ring choice. His future wifey choice. Yep, Quentin is winning!

And Lindsey, well, she's winning too & it's written all over her face. 

Congratulations, Future Mr. & Mrs. Miles! 



Ya'll, my cousins are basically models. Just see for yourself: 

I love them dearly. 

Thanks for checking out the blog today. 

Channing & Jordan

Channing contacted me a while back to book a session for her and Jordan, she already knew then she wanted to do something a little different. 

I brainstormed & drove around all kinds of places in the London area looking for something that wouldn't be the same 'ole same, but I was just coming up short. Then, Channing suggested a tree farm & since there isn't one locally (that I know of) we ended up heading north to Baldwin Farms in Richmond. I had been there before, back in early college, but I was having trouble remembering a lot about it. 

The photographer inside of me got way when we pulled up and I realized there were endless opportunities for photos AND the sun was going to set in the most perfect place possible.


I'll be honest & say, sometimes I hate nearly every photo I take at a session & other times it's like the stars just line up, the sun is perfect, the place is perfect, the people are perfect, & I just can't get enough of the photos. This session was definitely one of the latter. 

Special thanks to Jordan (& Channing on occasion as you'll see below) for pulling that wagon around the entire farm just so we could haul my stuff & use it for photos. Ya'll are the best! 

Here's to love & 2016!
