When I showed up to meet Sharon + Jonathan for their engagement session Jonathan pulled out his guitar, I thought it was awesome and such a great prop to add to their engagement photos! Especially since during their courtship (now there's a word I got from my mom:)!) Jonathan played the guitar a ton for Sharon and it became on of her favorite things about him. So sweet!

Also, also, Sharon's beautiful hair and make-up was done by none other than THE Nicole DeAnne!

sometimes you see two people together and you just smile. sharon & jonathan are one of those couples. you captured their affection perfectly. i love the b&w "grass view" shot. there's also something about the very first shot that is just so classic -- i think this is one they will look back on til their old and grey with fond memories.

You know what I like about december being closer than ever before is, It remains to be true until it's here. Every day we get closer than before, until Jan 1. Then every day is getting farther away until the exact middle of the year, then it gets closer again. Hmm, good thing I didn't say that out loud. Pretty lame. Anyway, I'm pretty sad that you started putting logo watermarks on all your pics, because I've been getting weddings on a different blog by showing images I stole from yours. It's worked great until now. I'm just not as good. A photographer zero, with no calories or sugar. hahaha. Love the pics you guys! You continue to amaze me byte by byte. My favorite Photograph of this shoot was the ring shot...(that was a pre-emptive pat on the fanny for the future ring shot)

A few weeks ago Justin surprised me with tickets to see The Killers live at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. Just one week prior to this we were hired by a couple from Las Vegas (Morgan + Jake) to shoot their wedding in January and have since been emailing back and forth trying to figure out when and how we could get together to shoot their engagement session. The surprise trip to Las Vegas was a perfect excuse to "kill two birds with one stone" and photograph this adorable couple while making it a trip to see The Killers in concert (which was AMAZING, one of my favorite bands of all time, thank you sweetheart!).

It was awesome meeting Morgan + Jake and they were great in front of our camera, especially with never meeting us in person until we pulled up at the Mandalay Bay valet parking, which is where we picked them up and drove around town. Here are some of our favorites from that session:

Shooting in Las Vegas was super fun, there was so much to work with, we didn't even scratch the surface! We are looking forward to the wedding in January!
