I had a great time getting to know Amanda and Christian during their engagement session. We were able to take some pictures at Wildcat Den, where they got engaged. I also love the flowering trees that we were able to get in some of the other pictures!

I had so much fun with Kim and Travis during their engagement session! After spending the evening together, it’s clear to me that these two are perfect for each other. I can’t wait to capture their wedding day next month.

It rained just about all day, but we managed to squeeze in Morgan and Derek’s engagement session. The rain and clouds made the colors so vibrant and I love the way these turned out!
