We realized after chatting for a few minutes at their engagement session that I have know Elise for a decade! So crazy!! It seems like just a couple of years ago we were meeting up at the Bistro on CNU’s campus and living that dream college life that involved class but was mostly spent with people we loved! Elise has always been such an inspirational friend! She never settles for anything less than what God has for her and she’s bold in her pursuit of her dreams. She has spent almost all of her time post-college working and serving at a teach in Jerusalem!!
Isn’t that amazing?! She’s so independent, strong and confident. I knew one day I would receive an email like I did a few months ago. Elise emailed me recently and told me that she was engaged and SO excited to finally get to introduce me to her fiance! They actually knew of each other years ago but it wasn’t until recently that they really hit it off and started dating.
As soon as we pulled up, Michael said, “Wait, is that them?!”. The only car in the driveway at Seven Springs (their wedding venue!) was a beautiful Porsche! We quickly found out that Chris is the epitome of a “car guy” and he loves sports cars. I’m not usually one to gravitate towards shooting couples with their cars but for Chris’s sake (and because his car is REALLY photogenic), we took a few portraits with the second love of his life! :)
While I love their images and I love the recent paint updates at Seven springs (the lighter colored building make for gorgeous backdrops!) …. my favorite part of this shoot was our time together. I had a chance to catch up with Elise and Michael got to go on a joy ride in the sports car with Chris! We wrapped up their shoot right at the time evening thunderstorms were rolling in! It was perfectly timed!
I hope you enjoy these favorites of mine!!! And sadly, these two are getting married on a date that we’re not available and VERY close to my due date! I’m so sad that they won’t be on the blog again but I just know that it’s going to be the most beautiful day and Elise is going to make a stunning bride!!!!
On Sunday evening, I posted a reel on my Instagram about something NEW that I tried in the photography world and WOAH did it create an uproar.
