When Ryan + Amanda walked up to meet us for their engagement session, I squealed inside … they look SO good!! Amanda was radiating, Ryan just exudes that super chill, super cool vibe, + their pops of bright red … man, I was in a photographer’s heaven!! And to only make it better, following behind were Amanda’s parents wearing matching “Mother of the Bride” + “Father of the Bride” shirts!! We had also decided to bring Vivian to the session (since these two are thinking about getting a small dog + we HAD to convince them how great it is!!), so between the 7 of us, we had quite the crew!! I’m so glad, though, because it made for one of the most fun, chill, + enjoyable engagement sessions to date!! By the time the night was over, it truly felt like we were a part of their family (especially Caleb + Mr. Henn–these two worked together to hang a chandelier from a tree, which you will see later!!, + I think they formed some sort of special man bond ; ))!! Hehe : )
Ryan + Amanda are one of the most down-to-earth + easygoing couples I have ever met!! They are so perfect for each other + the chemistry between the two of them is so evident + heartwarming!! The just “get” one another, + gosh, the way Ryan looks at Amanda, with the BIGGEST smile on his face, will surely make anyone’s heart melt!! To say we cannot wait to see these two again in August, when they will finally be tying the knot (!!!!!!!!), would be an understatement! Amanda, you are going to be the most STUNNING bride!! Eeeeekk! I can’t wait : ) Until then, enjoy some of my favorites from their session (it was so hard to choose!!) + have a WONDERFUL, apple-cider-and-pumpkin-patch-filled weekend : ) xo, M.
Amanda!!!!! SO BEAUTIFUL!!
This is the chandelier I was talking about!! These two brought this along with them since chandeliers will be a part of their wedding day + they wanted to tie the theme into their engagement session. I LOVE this intentionality!!!!!
Such a beautiful fall night!!!
