Early on in this engagement session, I asked the future Mr & Mrs to share the story of how they became engaged. Nahloni paused, smiling her gorgeous smile as Will interjected that his master plan to propose began with a fresh haircut and shave, and - as is often the case for those of us with livestock and land to tend to - a rare trip to the city. This brought to mind an old rancher's saying: a rich man buying you something means nothing, a busy man giving you his time means everything.
One week from now Will & Nahloni will be saying their "I dos" and I couldn't be more thrilled to capture their celebration! After spending an evening with them and their clan earlier this summer, I left feeling like I had known them my whole life. Their beautiful girls giggled while their mom and dad snuggled and smooched. Little-big man, Beau chilled out in the wagon, happier than a pig in... well you know because there were horses nearby. This session was fun for the whole family, the donkey included. FYI, that's how you know a session is going to be REALLY good!
I leave you with my favorites from their session, meanwhile I will be over here, just counting down the days until these two tie the knot!
