Micaiah + Ben's Sneak Peak {Engagement Session}

This past weekend I had the great pleasure of taking Micaiah and Ben's engagement photos.  I work with Micaiah at my day job, and when Ben popped the question I offered to take these photos as a gift to them.  I couldn't be more honored that they trusted me to take their engagement photos, and I am so excited to share them with you!

I really love photographing couples but I rarely get the opportunity to do so.  Most of the time a couple will have their wedding photographer take their engagement photos for them, and after a couple has children it's tough to convince them to be have photos taken without the kids.  So, this was such a wonderful opportunity for me to do something that I love, and I couldn't have asked for more amazing people to share it with.

Micaiah and Ben are the sweetest couple ever!  These photos tell the story of their love much better than words ever could, so I'm going to let the images speak for themselves and just keep the words to a minimum...

I just love this one!  I was planning on taking some photos of the two of them kissing behind the greenery, so I asked them to position themselves behind it.  As soon as they were crouched down, both of them moved the bush aside and peeked through it, and it was too adorable not to photograph!...

I'm not a TV watcher, so this is totally over my head, but this is from The Big Bang Theory, and has a personal meaning to Micaiah and Ben...

Micaiah and Ben, thank you for spending your Friday evening with me and for allowing me to be a small part of this special time in your lives through your photos.  I wish you a lifetime filled with love and happiness.  Congratulations!!
