Meet Joey + Sarah, an absolutely adorable, fun-loving and giving couple who enjoy life to it's fullest don't mind if that includes a little bit of goofiness! When Joey proposed to Sarah it was in the form of an elaborate and thoughtful scavenger hunt. She was driven around in a limousine to various locations where the merchants were to give her the clues Joey had prepared. If memory serves me right, the hunt concluded when she was at the State capitol at dusk and the chauffeur directed her to a spot in the garden and then told her to turn around....and there he was on one knee with a beautiful ring and an even more precious promise of the future they would have together. Swoon.
One of the stops on the hunt was Rick's Dessert Diner. This was our first stop at our session last Sunday and I had not anticipated what a hot spot it would be on a Sunday afternoon! Person after person kept coming in and the line nearly went out the door, but Joey found us a corner table and we enjoyed capturing some moments between them as they shared a milkshake and then some coffee before heading back outside for a few minutes with their babies (aka Bubba the Blind and little Tyson).
Next we headed to a nearby church that Joey + Sarah love.
They are due with their first baby, a little girl, in a couple of months and enjoyed this opportunity to meditate on their many blessings.
It was so much fun being able to share these moments with them.
Despite going to separate schools and not meeting until their mid-twenties, it was in this old auditorium where they both graduated from their respective high schools. It just happens to be across the street from one of their favorite restaurants, P.F. Changs.
This last image they're reacting when I exclaimed I may have been the target of an unclean bird above...oh the lengths we photographers go to tell the story!
Thank you Joey + Sarah for a fantastic time and journey through some of the special places in your lives.
One hot mama-to-be!
I think these next couple of images are some of my all-time favorites with their classic beauty and simplicity.
And like all good stories...They Lived Happily Ever After! THE END.
