This attractive young lady is someone I am really excited to see get engaged! I used to babysit Stacie back when I was in high school. I was honored when she told me I was the first person she thought of for pictures. (And she actually emailed me the same day he proposed I think!) LOL!
I had a great time getting to know her fiancee, Casey. He seems like a responsible guy that has a lot of the same interests as Stacie. Namely farming.
When asked what he first noticed/liked about Stacie, he replied, “I liked that she liked tractors.” Awwww! And Stacie has been actively farming with her parents for a while now, taking after her mom, I guess. (I remember seeing her mom in the tractor about as much as her dad.)
To add a more personal touch to their portraits, they brought some red/green tractor brand sweatshirts and some toy tractors to create some more fun images. I was racking my brain trying to come up with something cool. So I had them lay on their stomachs, facing each other, playing with the tractors… can’t you just hear them making the “Vrroom, vroom” sounds?
And, I had this idea to make the heart shape with their tractors and some sidewalk chalk to help pull it all together. Any of these would be really fun for save-the-dates!
P.S. The song “John Deere Green” by Joe Diffie kept playing over and over in my head as I was proofing this session. If you don’t know the song, look it up. 🙂
“On a hot summer night, He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene, In letters 3 foot high, And the whole town said that he should have used red, But it looked good to Charlene, In John Deere green…”
I’m excited to share the images from my latest engagement session with you. It has been truly beautiful around here the last two weeks. I have a ton of trees that turn colors and they make fall a very photogenic time of year at the Rebecca Lynne Photography studio!
This gorgeous young lady, Ellie, just so happens to be related to me through my husband. And so I’ve known her over 10 years now, but haven’t gotten to spend all that much time with her before now.
All Ellie knew… was that she loved LOVED my images! 🙂 I was touched by how adamant she was about having me photograph her wedding.
And I’m really enjoying getting to know her better and hearing about her wedding day plans. It’s so much fun to create a “vision” for the day… and it really helps when your photographer has a good understanding of that vision ahead of time so they can capture it fully.
The day we took these portraits, it was pretty windy and I was a tad worried about Ellie and her long hair getting blown every which way. But she was so cool and laid-back about it all. She was like, “No biggie, I can put my hair in a ponytail”… my kind of girl! 🙂
Anyhow, I just wanted to say, before I sign off… that I really like Alex and know he will be a great match for Ellie. Seeing the way they interact with each other and all the cute faces they’d share, makes me feel really good about their upcoming marriage.
This family came to me via a referral from one of my favorite clients so I had a pretty good feeling we’d be a good fit and as soon as I arrived I was at ease. They were such a nice group of people!
I loved their home and their big, shady yard. The kiddos were just the cutest and so well behaved. It was like a dream come true! 🙂
Also, the one son just go engaged to the sister of the gal that referred me so they asked to do a little mini-engagement session at the end. Of course, I obliged!
The whole thing went so amazingly well, it made me thankful I accepted the Sunday morning session.
I can’t wait for the family to see these!
Another amazing couple visited my studio last week! It’s just been puppy love like crazy around here!
Miranda is just adorable. She’s so petite and ever since I’ve known her she’s always looking cute with her makeup and hair done.
Her fiance isn’t hard on the eyes either! He’s a hunky farm boy and I’m guessing she thinks his tractor’s sexy… heeheehee. 😉
Sorry, that was totally corney! LOL! … there I go again! I just can’t stop.
Seriously though… they are going to make my job so hard. They just take too many dang good pictures. Love it!
Guess it’s a curse I’ll have to bear.
Can you feel the love??? I just adore engagement sessions. It’s all the love, without all the wedding day pressure. (Or the super-tight dress!) 🙂 Who can really breath in those things anyway? Glad I didn’t live in the day when you wore a gown all the time. I’m not sure I could have survived.
Anyhow, back to the task at hand. Focus, focus! I haven’t been working much this week as I’m attempting to take a vacation since our daycare gal has the week off for her own vacation.
But, today I have my parents watching the little guy and I’m catching up a bit and needed to show off some great images from Kelly and John’s engagement session.
Aren’t they just cute? I can really tell that John’s just head-over-heels for Kelly. He looks at her with such love, it is sooo sweet.
If you like these, stay tuned, I have more engagement pictures coming up and a senior…. and next week is chock full of sessions, so there will be lots to share!
