they were laying in the grass as i set up the shot, she started playfully singing and he joined her. they looked at each other and laughed. he brushed the hair out of her eyes and she leaned in for a kiss. he whispered to her that he loved her and she giggled. they froze there in a moment so sweet with their eyes locked, like there was no one else in the world. the chemistry between these two is unbelievable, and spending the evening with them reminded scott and i how amazing life is when you are consciously putting effort into making one another feel loved all of the time. we got in the car and started driving home after the shoot and he reached for my hand. this isn’t unusual but something was different. it was like i could feel his heart behind this small gesture and he didn’t let go until we pulled into the garage. the effect of watching two people so amazingly in-love is powerful. and the type of love and happiness these two share is contagious. it makes you want to smile and giggle and go cuddle your loved ones. i’m so excited for traci and travis, and scott and i feel so blessed that they came into our lives!!
another reason why i am so excited about these photographs is because of how much effort traci and travis both put in to make sure the session was the best it could be. they spent hours driving around the okanagan in search for the perfect location that fit their vision. they organized to have the old red truck for the shoot, and traci spent her afternoon today getting her hair and makeup professionally done, something i recommend to all of my brides for their engagement sessions 🙂 ~ not only that, but travis had purchased the dress traci wore back in october as gift to her, and she has been saving it in her closet ever since then because she knew it would be the perfect outfit for their engagement photos ~ now that is will-power ladies!! 😉 – i am so blessed to have so many amazing couples this year who put a crazy amount of thought and energy into the details of their shoots, it really does pay off and i am grateful for every single one of you!! traci and travis, the time and effort that was put into your session definitely did not go unnoticed!! you both looked amazing and i am so excited about the images! thank you so much again and scott and i seriously can’t wait for your september wedding!!! ~ enjoy! <3
