Amanda + Chad | Fairmont, NC Engagement Portraits

Last month, Dave and I had the pleasure of traveling to Fairmont, NC to meet Amanda and Chad for their engagement session. Amanda and I had only communicated by email prior to the session and through the whole process of booking their wedding so I wasn’t sure what or who to expect when we arrived as to what kind of personalities were in store. Amanda and Chad had to be the cutest couple EVER, inside and out! Sweet would not even begin to describe Amanda and Chad was just as laid back as can be! They both had dimples that went on for days and for anyone who knows me well…. dimples are MY FAV!!! We shot in Fairmont, NC on a farm that belonged to one of their family friends. Amanda and Chad were a little nervous about what they should be doing at first, but they quickly loosened up started to just be themselves and love on each other and I think that we captured some really sweet images of two of them together. Although we had to battle some WICKED poison ivy at our first location, I am glad that we took the risk because I think that there is something so magical about the pictures of them in the woods.

I love this next picture because every time I look at it, I see a heart formed by their heads! Do you see it too? LOVE IT! 🙂

These next few pictures remind me of that older country song (Yes, I can’t believe I am about to quote a country song! Ha!) where the lyrics are “You and me goin’ fishin’ in the dark, lying in the grass and counting the stars, where the cool grass grows…”. I think was singing that song out loud the whole time I was editing these pictures! While Amanda and Chad were laying and enjoying one another, the dragonflies were curious to see what was going on. Dave did an AMAZING job of capturing them in flight in a few of the following pictures! Dave, I am so proud of your innate photographic skills! 🙂 And jealous all at the same time! 😉
