I am LOVING all of the engagement sessions on my calendar lately! These couples are the best, and they fill me with so much JOY!

You may remember Jessica + Ashton from their session a couple years ago, but guess what? Now they’re engaged and planning their 2018 wedding day! They had already booked another couple’s session for this May, but their winter engagement made this spring session even more fun as we started planning for their engagement session + wedding photography… I’m so excited to share their engagement session with my blog readers!

Jessica + Ashton met at a bonfire in March 2015. By the end of the night, these two had been laughing so hard that their cheeks hurt! They realized that they had so many things in common that evening throughout their conversations and felt like they had known each other forever. I love their story because there were many times these two could have met prior to this night, but this was the very night that started their story! 

Then, this past February – at Ashton’s family’s annual Super Bowl party – he completely surprised Jessica when he proposed! Jessica told me that she was so excited and surprised that she forgot to say yes right away… These two will always remember Super Bowl 2017!

Over the last few months, I have LOVED hearing about all of their wedding plans + Jessica is such a planner! Love, love, love it! And on the day of their engagement session, I loved catching up with these two about life + wedding plans, and of course meeting their puppies Pyper and Harley. Their engagement session was nothing short of a success! The light and the love between these two were perfect, and I am in LOVE with those sunset images… So, so dreamy!

Here’s to the next year of planning! Love these two!
