Engagement Story: Natalie and Tim

I have been driving all over the place the past few days!  Sunday I headed to the western part of the state to meet Natalie and Tim for their engagement session in Hickory.  I don't know how they lucked out- it was like 79 degrees and gorgeous in the middle of July!  

Natalie and Tim were so cute and fun to work with!  It's a shame I have to wait a whole year to shoot their wedding.  It will be worth it!  They took me to an awesome park in Hickory, rich with a personal history of class field trips and prom pictures.  We started off the shoot with their furry babies...

We returned to the scene of those infamous prom pictures...

This bridge begins the path that took these two on field trips to study the marshy forest beside the park.  Since the severe drought a few years ago a large part of the path has been closed off and allowed to grow over where the water never fully returned.

Who doesn't love a little down time on the swings!?  This was a must-have for Natalie.

As soon we heard the music of the ice-cream truck (actually it is a van) Natalie knew that was the perfect way to end the session...

Natalie and Tim-  It was so great to finally get to meet you :)  I had a blast with you guys.  So far your wedding sounds so awesome- I can't wait to hear about the plans as they progress!
