Can I tell you my favorite part of Elizabeth & Sam's engagement session? Beyond getting to explore a new-to-me place—Brumley Forest Nature Preserve, which is, as it turns out, only a few miles from our old house!—beyond their sweet smiles, beyond even the gorgeous golden light that closed out our time together, this was my favorite part: when I told them they could relax between poses, or while I checked my settings, they didn't break away from one another. They just kept holding on, revelling a little bit in the snuggle. Most of my couples will relax their limbs, adjust their clothing, unstick any sweaty skin, but not Elizabeth & Sam. Their connection is so thorough, they are so obviously enamored with one another, that it made them just an absolute dream to photograph.

Add back in to the mix those sweet smiles and the golden hour light, and the session as a whole is kinda magical. I'm excited to see what these two have in store for their wedding next April, but until then, enjoy a selection of my favorites from their engagement session below!
