Engagement sessions make my heart sing. So today I want you to step back from wedding galore –just for a moment — and soak in the beauty of love before the big “I do!” This engagement session is filled to the brim with picture perfect moments and a whole lot of l.o.v.e. On a gorgeous afternoon in Lafayette, Louisiana this couple set out for Lake Martin to canoeing with Kerry and Denny from Heirloom Collective there to capture. The result? Something straight out of e-sesh heaven.
From the photographer… It was a hot summer night in Jasper, Indiana—Population 15,000. Amanda was in town from Pittsburgh, PA visiting her father’s hometown for the annual Strassenfest celebration–a festival of german food, music and of course beer. In the Bier Garden with her friend and cousin, Amanda caught, out of the corner of her eye, a man. Not just any man. This man was handsome. This man was amazing. This man was…wearing a cape…and dancing like an idiot. She knew right away that this was the man for her.
After a year of talking and texting and accumulation of numerous frequent flier miles, Amanda ultimately moved down to Louisiana to be with Charlie. A few months later they were engaged and are looking forward to being married in New Orleans. They will be married in Jackson Square, in front of St. Louis Cathedral, with the reception a few blocks away at the House of Blues. They’ll end the evening with their very own second line band, dancing through the streets of the French Quarter.
