Congratulations are in order for this wonderful couple - Amanda and Stephen!! They are getting married next June at one of my favorite venues - The Mansion Inn. After our initial meeting with Amanda and Steve this past summer Ed and I both said how great it would be to shoot their wedding next year - what a great couple they are! So you can imagine that I was really excited when they let me know they wanted to book with us for their big day! I always recommend an engagement session with our couples. I've said it before: We get to know each other so much better before the big day (not to mention you get more comfortable in front of the camera). And Amanda and Steve were all for it - in fact, Amanda had lots of great ideas for what she wanted out of the session! So last month we got together with them and their beautiful dog Ellie for a very special session. Here are some of our favorites.Congrats again you two - we are really excited for your special day next June!! Oh, and hey viewiers - why not comment and leave your congrats and best wishes for the beautiful couple after you've enjoyed their beautiful photos. ;)Meet Amanda and Steve and their sweet dog Ellie.Gorgeous bling!!!Ellie's moment to shine!
