Engagement: Matt & Kellie


A few days ago, I had the pleasure of taking my brother and future sister-in-law's engagement photos. Everything worked out perfectly. I was able to borrow a friend's DSLR camera (due to my lack thereof) and we found the perfect location not to far from my parent's house. 

Matt and Kellie such a lovely couple and they made it so easy for me to capture these images. They looked so natural in every pose. I know they are so excited about getting married this December. I am so glad I've been able to see their love story unfold...it's a sweet southern romance. They are absolutely perfect for each other!
Matt wanted to make sure we got these ring shots! :) The story behind how he got the ring is pretty amazing. Matt has been traveling with a ministry group called Life Action for the past two years, which meant saving money was practically non-existent. Well, it just so happened that the pastor at one of the churches they visited was a retired jeweler. Matt told him what he was looking for, and a few days later he showed Matt this ring! He was able to get it for a great price. It was such a blessing.


 Ah, young love. {Swoon} Can't you tell how in love they are? I can't wait to see where these two will go!



PS: I will be without a computer for a while because my mac had to go to the doctor. :( I will miss you guys until it comes home to me. I hope you all have a great weekend!
