Oh, hi! Tatiana on the blog scene to show you this special engagement shoot for Samantha and Zachary!
Now, I say special because this engagement shoot had a plus one — or rather, 2-year-old Louella! Look at how precious she is!!!
When I met with Sam and Zach for coffee to go over our wedding packages, they wanted to make sure little Louella could be a part of their engagement photos since she is such a huge part of their lives. Of couuuurse! No one could say no to that cute, little face!
Sam and Zach chose Bass Pro Waterfall Park for their location because they really wanted to incorporate a waterfall in their photos, along with the changing leaves of the season.
Unfortunately, Bass Pro was not on the same wave length and although the weather hasn’t quite turned, the waterfall was “turned off” for the winter.
Our walk to the waterfall, however, sparked Louella’s main interest: the “duck-ducks” — which were actually geese … but she was in the right ballpark.
As soon as she saw those little aquatic birdies down in the lake, she had forsaken the rock she was so desperately clinging to the whole shoot and tried to bolt!
Luckily, her parents were on it and swooped her up, just like I was on it to capture the only smile we could get out of her!
Toddlers are hard to please, but she was overjoyed to go down to see the geese.
One day she’ll grow up and realize they’re actually kind of mean, but until then … enjoy those “duck-ducks!”
Of course when she kept trying to dive in, her Aunt, who was on standby, took Louella to the play area.
Now, back to the happy couple!
Zach chose a beautiful ring with an amethyst-like stone as the gorgeous centerpiece.
Since purple is my favorite color, it’s automatically amazing in my book!
Zach proposed to Sam on Valentine’s Day. He was going to propose when he took her out to dinner that evening, but Sam said he got too nervous and instead proposed right there in the kitchen before they left! Isn’t that adorable?!
Sam and Zach met online via “Meet Me.” We have noticed more of our clients are finding true love on the web, like our Free Engagement Shoot winners!
And we just love love! <3
Since then, they’ve created a beautiful family together and have a wonderful wedding ahead of them — which they booked through us! We’re so excited!
See you again on the big day! <3
And we send you the biggest congratulations!
