I am so excited to share this lovely engagement session with you today! Jaye and Scott are the best, and I think you’ll think so, too!

Jaye told me that she first started following my work through my sister-in-law Deidre, and the two of us finally “officially” met at the grand opening celebration of Vintage Oaks Banquet Barn. You guys, the people in this business are incredible, and I am grateful. It amazes me that some of these relationships may have never happened if it weren’t for certain people, places, and God things throughout this process.

Jaye and Scott two had known one another for many years – growing up going to the same school – until a couple summers ago, when they hit things off after a summer festival in their small town! After that weekend, they were inseparable and could see their future unfolding. So, it was perfect when Scott proposed around Christmastime last year!

I love this couple so much. They are simply sweet and truly excited for their marriage adventure ahead… They are thankful to God for this life, and they truly believe life is good! They have big things happening in their life together, and their immense love is the icing on the cake!

Their engagement session was simply sweet, too! From planning the session to picking out outfits to actually meeting + shooting the session – it was all a dream and so, so fun! We started the session at Jaye’s family’s property and ended the session at Scott’s aunt and uncle’s property… How meaningful! I LOVE IT!

Here’s a look at their engagement session + I’m so excited to share their December wedding day later this year!
