Spring showers… Goodness, have we had spring showers! Luckily, just a week and a half ago for Stacey + Jake’s engagement session a dreary, rainy morning turned into a lovely, sunny afternoon + evening with a GORGEOUS sunset!

Stacey and Jake are the sweetest, and I loved officially meeting them for the first time at their engagement session! These two have known each other for as long as they can remember – growing up around each other as friends, and Stacey was good friends with Jake’s younger sister. Until a few summers ago they were just friends, and then these two hit it off and connected instantly! When Jake proposed to Stacey, he surprised her with so much happiness and joy to bring up her spirits in a rather challenging winter week. I love how simple and sweet his proposal was – especially because it was so very special to Stacey!

Like I said, these two are so sweet (they really, really are!) and fun to be around. As soon as we started the session, they felt like old friends, and I loved talking with them about so many different things all throughout the session… Wedding planning, local restaurants, photography – you name it, we probably talked about it! 

Their session was the perfect mix of urban textures + organic scenes (my favorite), and I am so thrilled to share photos of these two!
