Brandon and Ariel
A 2014 Forest Falls country engagement session. This might be my favorite engagement session of 2014!
Everyone meet Ariel and Brandon! Ariel contacted me through my website about doing their engagement photos and we struck up a little email friendship immediately. I had originally thought Ariel had found me through my Instagram account but when we were finally able to meet for the first time, I found out that not one…not three…but FIVE people had recommended me to her. FIVE!
In the early days I booked weddings entirely by word of mouth. Since at that point I had zero ideas about how to build a business, it was always so amazing to me that it kept snowballing all from referrals. This has truly been such a crazy and amazing journey that’s for sure.
Ariel is a nurse and Brandon is a firefighter (such a beautiful cliché they joked about). They have a gorgeous baby girl together too (now they have two). They are so much fun and so in love! We had such a blast and basically laughed the entire time at this Forest Falls country engagement session It isn’t unusual for me to be climbing all over things, standing barefoot in a creek , or laying on the ground…but not everyone will go right ahead and jump in the creek with me! These two did just that and then proceeded to have themselves a little water fight as well because they’re just that awesome.
So go ahead take a look and fall in love with their photos and their beautiful love just as I have. I know you’ll still love this Forest Falls county engagement session. We had so much fun that they decided to hire me for their rustic Clovis, Ca wedding the next year despite having plans to hire locally.
I have such a sentimental attachment to those first few years as my own business. It’s been such a wild journey.
