Amanda + Ben { engaged! }

I adore Amanda and Ben.  I don’t know what it is, but something about Amanda is just so fabulous, so fierce, and yet beautiful and vulnerable all at the same time. Makes her a dream to photograph!  I’m sure Ben would agree.  He is super sweet, super smart, and just adores her. After she and I met over coffee and after chatting via email about their engagement session, I knew it was going to be amazing.  I could feel it in my bones.  We both came to the session with a vision, and it totally came to fruition.  I love days like these, gets me all energized and inspired for the next one!

Ben and Amanda grew up on the water, and feel very at home in and near it. I used that as inspiration for their session, along with Amanda’s ridiculously fashionable style.  We met near the lake on a perfectly foggy afternoon…














A little experimental photography.  They were very good subjects  :)






Love. Major love.


We ended back where we started, at the lake as the rain began to fall.  A perfect ending…



You two are way too fabulous.  Can’t wait for the wedding!!
