I was so honored when these dear friends of ours asked me to take their engagement portraits... it's so incredible to help bottle up what it feels like as you start your life together.
I like to photograph at meaningful locations when possible and they already knew where they wanted to have the session. Harmony Horse Farm in nearby Adams, TN was the perfect backdrop for these two! Roberta and Frank often spend the weekend at the barn, riding and caring for the rest of their family: Cookie and Daisy. Cookie was even featured in their session! We spent a warm May afternoon together walking around the farm and they endured my little assignments like "run to each other like its the Survivor family episode!" in order to get some fun, sweet, and gorgeous golden memories.
They ended up with a LOT of favorites at their viewing and they chose to build an Anthology Box with them. They even got their box with additional depth so they could add to their story in the future. I can just see them sitting down in 15 years to flip through their engagements, wedding, baby and family photographs all in this one beautiful heirloom. So beautiful! We framed their favorite ring shot and hung a 20x30 Canvas of their favorite portrait too!
Enjoy the slideshow of some of their favorites!
