Louisa + Zach. NC Engagement Session.

Where to even start? Zach and Louisa's engagement session was one for the books... Gorgeous weather, beautiful people, great locations, and tons of laughter! I don't think I've ever laughed this much during an engagement session. Between the jokes, precarious positions, and multiple slipping accidents, we had a good time and got some amazing shots...

{Quick note : In previous posts, I make my comments below the photo being mentioned... I've found that this is a little confusing and, from now on, will make my comments at the top of the image}

We started the session at Louisa's grandparents house. They have a beautiful backyard full of ivy!

Seriously gorgeous. Louisa looked down for a split second, her hair fell perfectly around her face, I snapped the image and immediately fell in love with it.

004

Jonathan shot this session with me and grabbed the shot below. Isn't it beautiful? They look so relaxed and comfortable with each other.

I don't even remember what happened to get the reaction in the photo on the right, but I love it.

Ok, does this look like it belongs in a magazine or what? They're just so cute!

After a quick outfit change, we headed to Zach's super secret fishing spot for a vintage feel.

I love these photos we grabbed while Zach was setting up his fly rod.

This is where it started to get funny. Some of us were having a hard time crossing the rocks without falling in the water ;) But I love this dramatic photo with the waterfall.

Jonathan climbed a huge wall to get this angle. I love the flare!

This image just deserves to be bigger. They look so gorgeous and in love!

I grabbed a few shots of Louisa alone. Check out those gorgeous eyes!

Louisa and Zach were so awesome during the session, that water was cold!

This is one of my favorite images of Zach. So handsome!

I have no words for this one. GORGEOUS! Ok, I did have one word.

Louisa's left-hand bling...

We let Zach fish for a few minutes and grabbed some cute photos. I love Louisa's bare feet in this image.

Zach was all about fishing but he couldn't help getting distracted by the beautiful woman beside him ;)

042

043

We walked back up to the car and the sunlight was perfect in this field! I asked if we could shoot here for a few minutes and they were happy to go along with it. This shot was a joke at first but I ended up loving it! It cracks me up every time.

045

This one needs to be printed and hung on a wall somewhere. Seriously.

046

048

One more outfit change and we drove for a few minutes to catch the last of the sunlight.

049

050

Don't you love their red hair?

051

We crawled through a hole in the wall and found another gorgeous waterfall! This location was much more dangerous than our first water location, though. All the rocks were covered in moss and there were more than a few slips and falls but Louisa and Zach never stopped smiling!

Zach and Louisa, we had so much fun with you at the session and dinner afterward :) I can't wait to shoot your wedding next summer!

Gorgeous couple and photos! I mean seriously, awesome. My favorite engagement shoot photos that I have seen in a long time. And the one you said needs to be printed and hung on a wall - the b&w one - FOR REAL! Put that up in stock and it will sell a ton. It should be a poster.
