Todd and Amanda are completely in love and perfect for one another. I met Amanda years ago, and was THRILLED when she reached out to me about photographing their engagement and wedding!
We had some hiccups on this session but you’d never know by how the photos turned out. First, we were anxiously waiting for the trees to bloom. We have a very small window in the spring where the blooms are on the apple trees. As in 4-5 days, max, and that is only when the wind works in our favor. So, we had to change dates a few times. Then, we were all set to go and there was a tragedy in our small town. A local place down on main street caught fire. It was awful. All of main street and the surrounding area was evacuated as a precaution. The salon where Amanda was getting her hair and make up down that day in preparing for her engagement photos was part of that evacuation. Luckily, no one was seriously injured and our wonderful emergency response teams in town acted swiftly and efficiently to contain the fire. Amanda wound up doing her own hair and make-up, which came out awesome! In the end, we were just so thankful that everyone was okay and the situation wasn’t worse.
As you’ll be able to see in these photos, Amanda is gorgeous and I’ve never seen her happier. Todd is her person and they way he looks at her is incredibly beautiful.
We also had an incredible sunset so I was geeking out a bit, but if you’ve ever had a session with me- you know that when I start to geek out is when the magic starts to happen.
Check out some of my favorites from their engagement session.
