Valentines Day | Sweetheart Snaps Mini Sessions

Couple Sessions


Happy Valentines Day everybody!!! In celebration of today, I wanted to share six beautiful sessions that I had the honor of photographing these past two weeks! I offered these mini sessions in honor of this holiday and was blessed to be able to capture the love shared between all of these amazing couples! Couples are one of my absolute favorite things to photograph. Being able to capture the love and emotion between two people is something that I will never get enough of! I am SO excited for all of my upcoming couples and engagements and I’m even more excited to expand my photography into weddings in order to capture more and more gorgeous couples like this every day! Enjoy some of my favorites from each of these sessions below and leave them all some love!

Caylin and Collin:

These two are SOO cute! They brought the most adorable props to their session because Caylin plays softball and Collin’s a baseball star! I even got a chance to test out my macro lens on the gorgeous ring that Collin bought her for Christmas 🙂

Ashley and Jared:

These two are absolutely GORGEOUS and couldn’t stop laughing during their session-it was precious! I know Ashley personally, so it made this session that much more fun! We were FREEZING during their session, but you would never know! Props to Ashley for changing into that dress in the cold!

Morgan and Jake: (and Brandy!)

Okay seriously…how adorable is Brandy?! She is a Rottweiler puppy and Morgan & Jake’s baby! She was so well behaved at their session and made an ADORABLE addition to an already gorgeous couple 🙂

Haley and Keith:

These two are SOOOO sweet! The love that they have for each other radiates and they are the perfect match! Keith was such a trooper during the lovey-dovey photos that we let him chose some fun shots at the end…he can get some serious air!!

Last but most definitely not least….

Julissa and Tony:

These two were the only couple that picked the “city” location and I am SO glad that they did! Their outfits were so perfect and they looked gorgeous together! Not to mention that it was sunny and snowing at the same time…who knew that could make such gorgeous light?!
