When I was brainstorming for my first portrait session of 2017, I was not expecting the (relatively) cold weather that ended up rolling in, but the temperature did not dampen the romance between Brooke and Jeffrey at all. If anything, it was the perfect excuse to get cozy! Of course, the hot chocolate helped, too. ;)
Brooke serves in the Air Force, and Jeffrey has stuck by her side for six years and multiple moves around the country. In all that time, they'd never had professional portraits made, and I am SO glad we got to change that! Look at these model faces!
These two were a dream to photograph. They are not only gorgeous but also classy and sweet. I loved getting to capture that in these photos!
Our walk in the woods was such a joy that I barely noticed it was so chilly out!
Brooke's ring is absolutely stunning! (Good job, Jeffrey!)
We switched it up with a little stroll in downtown Ocean Springs as the sun was going down. Like me, these two aren't from here and never expected to live in Mississippi, but, also like me, they love it! We found tons of cute spots for posing. :)
I am glad our adorable little town plays a role in their engagement photos, especially since they are planning a destination wedding in Colorado!
It was a true honor to get to help tell this precious couple's love story through these photos. Jeffrey and Brooke, I wish you a lifetime of happiness! (And I not-so-secretly hope I get to have your beautiful faces in front of my camera again sometime!) :)
