Jocelyn and Joey's engagement

Jocelyn and Joey's engagement

I met Jocelyn at Cincy Chic. She used to work all of the photoshoots with me. She is a fantastic makeup artist and we got along like peas and carrots :) When she got engaged, she told me that she couldn't imagine anyone else photographing her wedding. My heart melted. I was (and still am) so honored. She couldn't wait for me to meet Joey. She talked about him all the time. When I met him, he definitely lived up to all the hype. He is a true gem and I couldn't be happier for the two of them! I headed over to Kentucky for their engagement session. We started at this adorable Bed and Breakfast and then walked to a nearby fairground. Here are a few of my favorites from our time together ...

Gotta love the beautiful warm soft light ...

Joey is a 'pointer' ... he would crack us up with all of his pointing :)

This next one is for Joey ... he was dying to get his 'lean on' at the barn - so, we obliged him

Quote of the day

an interesting quote I found on the internet the other day ...
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make -- not just on your wedding day, but over and over again -- and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife. [barbara de angelis]

Jenn and Tim's engagement

Jenn and Tim's engagement

This couple is so ADORABLE together. I can't say that with enough emphasis - the text doesn't get big enough! And Jenn has one of those award winning smiles! Jenn and Tim were engaged at Ault Park so it was only fitting that we go back for their engagement photos. Jenn was telling me that she had done her friends' engagement photographs at Ault last October. So, needless to say, I wanted to make sure I made her proud. Here are some of my favorites ...

love me some backlighting!

everything was so bright green!

but we did manage to find some color ...

I love this next series ... and I had to post them in a series ... kind of like a flip book (but without the flip. - ok, it isn't a book either - but you get the idea)


Tim is looking very GQ in this photo ... don't you think?

holy sun flare ...

awww ... had to do this series as well ... (you know ... the flip book thingy?)

I have no idea what is going on here ... but Tim looks happy about it :)

Big Big Fun with you guys! Can't wait for the wedding!
