Abby + Josh's Engagement Session

Wow, where to start with this session?! I've known Abby for years, and Josh even longer than that! Needless to say, I was super excited when they got engaged and Josh called to ask me to do their engagement session a couple of days after he put the ring on Abby's finger.

Second, I chose way too many images for this post. I couldn't help it! I am totally in love with every one of their images and I know a ton of people that are looking forward to this post. Plus it's my blog so I can do whatever I want, right?

We started their session at Old Salem on a gorgeous and unusually warm fall day.

They are always laughing about something. It's so cute and makes me really happy.

I love walking around and finding cute little places to shoot, like this walkway that I hadn't seen before.

How amazing are these leaves? I love the color and shape of them. Does anyone know what kind of tree they are from?

I like getting little moments like this. Abby asked Josh to pull the leaves out of her hair when they sat up.

Thanks to Josh for holding my camera while I climbed this tree... and again when I had to jump down.

After Josh and Abby changed clothes we went to the Arts District of downtown Winston Salem

I found these mustaches in a vending machine at my grocery store. I was so excited to be able to use them in Josh and Abby's session. We were all laughing so hard!

Josh wanted to take some pictures on a city bus... GREAT idea! I loved it.

I love Abby's hands in this image. There's something about this photo that's just so soft and romantic.

Amazing job Alexa! LOVE IT! Melli was right, those yellow leaves are from the Ginkgo biloba tree. They are so beautiful. What a wonderful couple. It makes me want to do engagement portraits again with you! How many hours did you spend with them?
