Amber had originally scheduled their engagement session in May, but between sickness and the weather, we just couldn’t make it happen before I had to go to North Carolina for my internship.

Y’all! I’ve been working on something that I’m really excited about! I had this idea while searching for outfits for my own engagement photos. I was not having any luck finding a dress that I was hoping for. I didn’t have the money at the time to spend on the style of dress I really […]
