Oct 2, 2009Engagement :: George and Maria are engaged!!!
I can not begin to tell you how excited I am about these photos!!!
George is a good friend of mine who goes all the way back to grade school. When I discovered he was engaged I was SO excited ... and a little discouraged because he and Maria live in Salt Lake City, Utah. How in the world would it ever work out?!
Well ... of course it did work out! These two will be getting married next summer at the Shirley Family Farm in Pigeon Forge, TN. They were in town for a quick visit a few weeks ago and thankfully we were able to get together on the farm and do a few engagement photos. Actually it was more like a million. Who's counting?
I was speechless when George drove me to the top of the ridge where the ceremony will be held. The view is breath taking. On this particular ridge is a grape vineyard.
George and Maria are SO LOVELY to photograph!
All of their interactions are completely natural! I had to give them so little direction. They are so good looking and SO good at being in love.
Every single photo from the day is my favorite one. All of them!
Especially this one:
At the base of the farm are the black berries. Millions and millions of huge sweet blackberries. Also known as Heaven.
My favorite thing about doing photos on a farm is that there are always interesting equipment and vehicles. I don't know why I love dirty old cars but I do.
So just to get a little contrast in there ... we thought we'd do a few images in downtown Knoxville.
I LOVED Maria's red shoes ...
