Shelby + Will- Engagement

“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple comes together, it is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”

Meet Shelby and Will.

For my blogs, I try (try being the key word) to only pick about 10 pictures as to not overwhelm you…however when you have a couple as fun and easy to work with as these two…you can’t resist!

Shelby was in search of a photographer for her wedding, in April, and found me on Wedding Wire. She was super sweet and actually booked me right away! I hadn’t met them when we scheduled the engagement shoot (which is included in most of my packages) but it wouldn’t have mattered because we hit it off right away!

The interactions between these Shelby and Will were so fun to watch. Shelby laughed a lot which made for some amazing candid pictures and some real genuine expressions! You will be able to see that throughout the blog.

At one point I told them both to be themselves and relax and this is what I got out of Will…but it is so him isn’t it? BUNNY EARS!!!

I just cant get enough of how fun this couple was…I found out a lot of fun facts about these two. For instance, one of my favorite facts was that they two step..but not just your basic two step…like the dancing and swinging you around and dancing that you see and wish that you could do! About halfway through the session, I asked them to dance for me! I loved watching how they moved together and could anticipate what was coming next! Here are just a few of my favorite shots I got of that!!

This couple was so great to work with, the whole time! Even though they have never had professional pictures taken, you would never know how quickly they became comfortable in front of my camera.

Will was a little more hesitant, as most guys are, but warmed up quick! By the end, Will was having a blast! Towards the end, I asked Shelby if there was anything that I may have missed. She said no, but Will chimed in and wanted to climb up the side of the rock that they were next too. I obviously obliged and told him to hop up there, knowing full well that Shelby was not going to follow him. This is one of my favorite pictures because you can see how happy he was to get a picture that he thought he probably wasn’t going to get (It is an engagement session after all). I love the way Shelby is looking at him in it!

I can not wait for this wedding and am truly blessed to be able to meet such amazing people who are so passionate about the journey they have ahead of them! Congratulations Shelby and Will! I can’t wait for April!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read all the ins and outs of this shoot. I appreciate all of you everyday and cant wait to work with you all!
