Today’s engagement session on the blog is definitely one for someone who has a soft spot for romantic love stories! Cough, cough…that means me. 🙂
Anyways, when I first heard from Savannah and Mike, I was beyond excited and had already heard about their engagement from one of my past high school seniors that I did photos for (back when I did senior photos)! Katie is the sweetest girl in the world and I can’t wait for the day she gets engaged and gets married too! Mike is Katie’s brother and she told him ALL about me and raved that he NEEDED me to do their engagement photos and their wedding. With that being said, Savannah and Mike found their way into my inbox and I was thrilled. I almost immediately responded and pretty much jumped for joy! I just love being able to be a photographer that families love to use – I get to see families that I’ve been around before and watch their family grow and change throughout the whole process.
One of my favorite parts of learning about my couples is when I get to speak to each of them separately. I always love the sentimental questions and ask what they love most about each other. Mike’s answer in this case just made my heart skip a beat! These two are the sweetest lovebirds and they are SO meant for each other! Mike loves how young Savannah’s soul is and the fact that she will always be able to find the best in anyone in any situation. The reason he loves that about her is it makes him feel like a better person when he’s around her.
When he told me that, it got me thinking – ALL couples should feel that way. I definitely think when you find the one you’re meant to be with, you should always feel SO much better and like you’ve grown just by being around them.
Savannah loves that Mike supports her regardless of any situation she has been put through and always knows how to cheer her up. He really is the sunshine in her life and I saw that through my own eyes at the engagement session.
The entire time we were there he was trying to do anything and everything he could possibly do to benefit and serve and honor her and I just loved that about the two of them! Savannah and Mike have such an honorable relationship and I truly look up to them as an example of an everlasting relationship. I had so much fun with them at their FREEZING engagement session and these are just some of my favorite images we created that day! I can’t wait for your guys’ May wedding!!
