Love in the Garden

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.”- Brene Brown

I finally got to meet these two! Joanna hired me last year to photograph her September wedding and let me tell you, I was so excited to finally shoot some engagement photos. to start our day, we went to an INCREDIBLE greenhouse with an amazing bar and cafe located inside.

Yes, you read that correctly.

BE STILL MY HEART Y’ALL.

We had a cocktail (and I had a snack, because, beer cheese) to break the ice, chat about the wedding, and hopefully lower some of the anxiety about having photos taken. Once we are all relaxed and chatting, the magic started to happen.

Is there anything better than really connecting with another person? The whole time I had a camera in hand, I couldn’t stop thinking about what Brene Brown says about Love and Connection:

“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.”

Take a peek at some of my faaaavorite photos from their sweet session.
