Oh, Hope and Greg. One of my most favorite sessions from the fall is hands down their engagement session. Hope and I have been friends since Kindergarten. We played on the same elementary jr. pro basketball teams. We had sleepovers and played with our American Girl Dolls. We played volleyball together in middle school; Hope cheered for the high school football team, and I played in the band. Our lives have sort of always intermingled, and I love that part of living in a small town.
Hope has one of the most beautiful souls. She is sweet and kind and a woman of God. I couldn't have even imagined someone better for Hope than Greg. Greg went to a different high school than Hope and I did, so I had only heard of him throughout their relationship. I finally got to meet Greg at the engagement session, and I was blown away at the very apparent match these two were. Greg is every bit as kind and sweet as Hope, and he truly wanted their engagement session to be such a positive experience for them! Sometimes the guys aren't too excited about pictures, but Greg was! It was so refreshing to be with two people so in love and so excited for their future together.
Hope styled their session perfectly, and she also incorporated several DIY elements. She made the banner and even the pillows! Hope and I share a love of crafting, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with for the wedding!
Hope and Greg, thank you for choosing me to document this exciting time in your life! I am so excited for your wedding, and all the things we have to photograph between now and then! :)
