Emily didn’t know when she went to work at Stockdale’s that it would bring about the chance meeting that would change her life forever. When Hunter walked in, she stopped still and tried to breathe. When she could think again, she stole his phone number and then she stole his heart. And any young man who is willing to smile and do an engagement session in 45 degree weather and wade through a water soaked yard and field clearly doesn’t own his heart any more. And it’s a sweet reminder of how love happens, and how amazing each story of romance really is. It doesn’t matter if you’ve known each other since childhood and love suddenly blossomed, or if it was an accidental meeting at Stockdale’s, every story is beautiful. I hope your favorite will always be your own.
Emily and Hunter were such fun to photograph and willing to do absolutely anything I suggested. It’s no secret how much I love doing couple and engagement sessions, so it was a perfect way to end a week of rain and and more rain. Even though it was very chilly, the light was clean and a slight overcast made the perfect combination for a great session.
Part of planning a meaningful session is thinking through locations that are special. Emily wanted to do pictures at the the Pocket Park with Lambert’s Pool Room and at her grandfather’s barn and pond. Those both have significance in her life and made beautiful backdrops because the light just worked in our favor. I loved the beautiful afghan that her grandmother made for her too. Love in itself is special, but adding sentimental elements brings out a whole new layer of emotion.
Emily and Hunter, I loved doing your session. You are a beautiful couple and the love you share is refreshing and fun to just be around. I can’t wait to photograph your wedding and I know you can’t wait to say “I do.” Love and blessings, Pat
