“If we’d never met, I think I would have known that my life wasn’t complete. And I would have wandered the world in search of you, even if I didn’t know who I was looking for.”-Nicholas Sparks, The Longest Ride
Let me just start by letting you know that I’m not often speechless. When I started editing these, I just could not get enough of this day! We had such an incredible day! Sunny and 75 degrees…yes it was a perfect Jake Owen song….then add in some horses! It truly was the perfect day for Andy & Jaycie’s country engagement session.
When Jaycie and I started discussing her engagement session, I told her that I encourage my couples to pick places that are special to them! Why? The engagement photos mean so much more to you when there is sentiment behind the location. When you look back on the photos later on, you’ll get to re-experience the day and the sweet memories the location holds. Jaycie brought up that they love horseback riding, and that Double M Campground is one of their favorite places to ride. Jaycie asked if I would be willing to horseback ride to a couple locations between Double M and within the Shawnee National Forest….uhh like she even had to ask?! I absolutely said, “Of course”!! This is why I absolutely love what I do!
So, last Sunday I (over)packed my gear bag and made sure my snacks were in reachable places, of course. We rode all day and stopped a few times to hit all of their favorite spots. I truly had the best day with these two! They are the absolute sweetest. Scroll down to check out some of the highlights from their country engagement session. I can’t wait for their fairytale wedding this fall!
