Jamie & Nicole
Ok, you have to hear this story. When Jamie first emailed me a few months ago, he said he was planning on proposing to his girlfriend & wanted to surprise her with an engagement session. Apparently she’d been dropping a few hints about getting hitched & she really wanted Leafo Photo to be their wedding photographers (woohoo!), so he was wondering if we could help him pop the question. Um, YEAH! So cool!
We emailed back & forth for about a month, and, knowing that it’s tough to get a girl excited about having her photo taken without giving her advance warning to primp, Jamie took care of all of the details. He ordered her a cute outfit, figured out ways to have her get her hair & nails done without seeming suspicious, and scoped out a great location for the shoot. Nicole had always wanted to do an outdoor photo shoot with a farm/barn background, so Jamie called up a friend who owns a nearby farm & set up a time. We scheduled the shoot on Nicole’s birthday and drove up ahead of time to hide in the barns. Jamie told her that they had to head over there to pick up a birthday gift for her, and the plan was set!
Don’t you just love her smile? Gorgeous!
We fell in love with these yellow-green fields & the golden afternoon sunlight.
The skies went back & forth from blue & happy to dramatic & rainy. Kind of fun to have such variety in one shoot, and they were total troopers about the weather. We were a little worried about her white dress in the rain…gotta keep these photos G-rated, people!
Jamie & Nicole, awesome job rocking your engagement photos! It was truly an honor to be part of your engagement story, and we are SO happy for you two! Congratulations!!
