Oh, you guys! We have such a treat for you today! I am in love with this engagement session for so many reasons:
  1. Hannah and AJ are the sweetest couple! We loved getting to know them better.
  2. We shot Hannah's mom's wedding nearly seven years ago, and we are thrilled to get to see everyone again for another wedding!
  3. We were so lucky to be able to use Orion Hill for this shoot. The property will be open for weddings next year, but we got to be the first photographers to photograph a couple on the grounds!
  4. Hannah and AJ are total BABES, and a photographers' dream!

We made an instant bond with Erica and Travis. We felt attracted to their genuine and sweet hearts, but when we learned that they met and fell in love not far from the place that Ed and I did, we loved them even more! I have always wanted to photograph a couple in the Mississippi Delta. Ed and I began our lives together in the Delta, so when Erica and Travis told us that they wanted their engagement session there, we were totally on board! It felt so good to get back to our roots!

I'm going to be straight-up honest in today's post. This beautiful little civil service is one of our very favorite weddings ever, but it didn't start out that way. It was the hottest day of the year so far, over 100 degrees! The bride's hair was nearly ruined the day before. The groom really wanted a ceremony in the courthouse, but no judges were available. Instead, we would be at a law office, with no idea what the location or light would be like. My heart sank. I was beginning to wonder if we should reschedule. Things just weren't going our way. Then we arrived at the location.
