Mrs. Gayle, April’s mother and huge part of her life invited April to dinner. For April, a family get together is a common occurrence so she didn’t think anything of the fact that her sister came into town. What her sister was really doing however, was helping to implement Josh’s proposal.
April was dolled up for the night…looking snazzy in her heels. She walked up to the front door of her parents home, anticipating a meal with her family when she opened the door and could not believe what she saw.
First, daisies: Lots of them…daisies are her favorite flower. Before her mind could even comprehend, she turned her attention to Josh. There he kneeled, lit by candlelight, in the center of a heart of petals. (Sounds just magical, doesn’t it?)
April was speechless; so shocked in fact that she needed a moment. When she came back, with her hand extended, she accepted Josh’s proposal. :)
We spent their engagement session shooting in the beautiful landscape of Jungle Gardens. It’s become one of my ABSOLUTE favorite places to shoot because I just love the neutral colors, incredible locations, and gorgeous light. We really couldn’t have asked for a better day!
Josh and April have such a fun love. April keeps everyone laughing…especially Josh. She’s light-hearted, hilarious, and Josh loves every bit of her. It was so wonderful having the opportunity to get to know them even better and to document their chemistry. Here are a few of my favorites from their session:
About halfway through their engagement session, this alligator crossed our path! This was a TRUE Louisiana engagement session. :)
Not only is this my favorite images from their session, it is quite possibly one of my favorite engagement session images….EVER.
Have a wonderful weekend!
