“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


I’m usually not speechless. When I started editing these, I just could not get enough of this day! That day was gorgeous! Sunny and 75…yes it was a perfect Jake Owen song….then add horses!

Meet Andy and Jaycie! (Yes, almost a Toy Story Love Story!!!)
This glowy, romantic, breathtaking, awe inspiring engagement session gets filed under Favorites!


When Jaycie and I started discussing her engagement session, I told her that I encourage my brides to pick places that are special to them! It means so much more when there is sentiment behind the location. She told me about Double M Campground and about how it’s one of their favorite places to horseback 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!! Of course!! This is why I absolutely love what I do!!

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. It was nonstop gorgeous views all day.

These two are the sweetest! Take a look at their gorgeous gallery documenting their day. I can not wait for their fairy-tale wedding this fall!!
