Engagement Story: Sara and Elliot

The elements seemed to be against Sara and Elliot's engagement shoot... until we arrived on the scene Saturday and WOW we were so glad we waited for such a gorgeous day!

It is always fun to head down to the place I met my husband in order to document another couple's love- Campbell University! Like us, Sara and Elliot met each other and fell in love around campus so what better place to celebrate their engagement.

Sara told me in the beginning that she loves sun flare...
luckily the sun delivered and I tried to take advantage of that!

I am a huge fan of having different colored stones in an engagement ring. YUM!

There are so many personal, lovey moments that I caught between Sara and Elliot...
I love it when couples feel comfortable enough to let me into their world

Engagement shoots are one of my FAVORITE types of shoots...
one reason being that I love it when couples show their personalities and parts of their love story during the shoot. Every couple has random details in their "how we met" story, and Elliot and Sara's are bouncy balls. Sara apparently threw a bouncy ball at Elliot and not too long after they were dating. Elliot loves this story and I love that he brought 100+ bouncy balls!

I also love it when a couple says they want to lay on the ground...
I ALWAYS love that :)

We got lucky and caught a security guard locking up the new chapel so we BEGGED him to let us in to take a few shots... surprisingly he said yes!

I like the pre-kiss, kiss and post-kiss moments...

I noticed this dreamy, secluded field on the way to Campbell and had a secret hope that Sara and Elliot would find it a fabulous idea. WHEW! They loved it- Sara even said it made her feel like she was in a Taylor Swift music video.

I happened to see this one on the back of the camera after I captured it and I knew exactly how I wanted it to look in the end. So warm and cozy in this moment...

Sara and Elliot: It was soooo fun getting to hang out with you guys tromping around campus and random fields. Elliot you were SUCH a good sport about doing anything we told you even though you were traveling by crutches. Most men could not have handled that :)
