Harrison and Jaden might seriously be my dream couple…
Okay, I may say that about all of my couples (because I get to work with the BEST couples), but these two are seriously at the top of my list!
Not only is Jaden basically my soul-sister (more on that in a minute), but the way these two look at each other just make me feel like I could be around them all day long – particularly if I’m photographing them because *wow*. I always tend to find a little piece of me and Cole in my couples and these two are no exception. They’re currently living in different areas and have to drive on the weekends to see each other which is exactly what Cole and I did for three of the four years before we got married. Living apart like that, especially while wedding planning, is such a hard thing to do, but has such an amazing way of bringing you even closer together too.
Now on to my soul-sister comment… During our consultation, it was so clear that Jaden and I had so much in common. But not in the usual ways you’d normally think of. While there were several things that made it so easy to bond over, there’s one thing that was more crazy than the rest. Jaden grew up in the same city that my dad did in Oklahoma and they even went to the same high school! Crazy to think that out of everyone in the country, we both have a connection to a high school in Oklahoma and we both ended up in North Carolina. Easy to say, the fact that she reminds me of one of my favorite people in the world made me so excited to photograph their wedding next June!
If that all wasn’t enough to make this one of my favorite engagement sessions, here’s the cherry on top: Their whole first outfit was done at my mother-in-law’s farm. I’ve been so lucky to do several sessions on her farm over the years, but this is definitely a favorite of mine. This land is so beautiful and so special to me already and I just loved getting to share it with this amazing couple!
My absolute favorites! How cute are they?!
Another favorite! The way they look at each other just melts my heart!
