Brittany & Christopher {Engagement}

Brittany & Christopher are one of the absolute sweetest couples I've ever had the pleasure of photographing...and it didn't hurt that they were also completely relaxed in front of the camera, too. In fact, I think it's safe to say they were the first couple who really did fully go with the "pretend I'm not here, and there isn't a huge camera lens focued on you" direction right from the start. In fact, sometimes I think I continued talking just to make sure I still knew I was there. It was fabulous...kinda a "homerun" session for me. pardon the pun.

 So both of these two lovebirds are in the Military...something I highly respect and fact, Christopher had just flew in from Fort Drum in time for our session together, and Brittany deploys soon. {I always secretly wished I was cool enough to be a Soldier; in fact if I could pick any superpowers to have for myself there would be two:  the ability to purr (I think it would be super cool to purr like a cat-then when my hubby hugged me he'd truly know how happy I am to be in his arms) and the bravery to be a soldier. Getting off topic here, sorry!} They also share a huge love of baseball. In fact, they got engaged at a baseball game and their wedding is a vintage baseball cool! {their "guest book" is actually a jersey for everyone to sign.}

So in honor of their love {of baseball AND each other} we headed out to J.P. Riddle Stadium, which is home of the Fayetteville Swampdogs. {many, many thanks to Jeremy there who gave us free run of the stadium. I had a blast photographing there!}
 Peanuts & Crackerjack? Yum. Add a gorgeous engagement ring? Even Yummier.
{not to take away any coolness from the little prizes, but I'd say finding the love of your life trumps getting a pencil topper anyday. sorry, Crackerjacks.}
After these fun series of photographs we  headed downtown to Arsenal Park & The Transportation Museum...I think it's safe to say this session will be the next one up on my "featured session" section of my website; there's just too many adorable ones not to share them all. But Brittany & Christopher get first peek!

Brittany & Christopher - I really enjoyed working with you, and am so glad you picked me to capture these memories for you. I look forward to hearing that you're home safe & sound, Brittany, and I hope the next few months fly by for you both. I cannot wait for you to see your whole guys are the best! XOXO
