A Fountain Avenue and Country Lake Side Fall Engagement Session in Paducah Kentucky
After a much needed break Sunday from all things work related, I’m jumping right back into this week starting with this lovely overcast engagement session taken back in the fall of 2017. Whoa! That’s almost two years ago! I know I know but I can’t not share it because I love these two humans beings so much AND their wedding is on the blog tomorrow AND their anniversary session on Wednesday! My Type A perfectionist self won’t let me blog things out of order :/
It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for high school sweethearts – Neil and I have known each other since middle school and start dating in high school. Elizabeth & Justin, therefore, had me loving them and their story from the beginning for the reason alone! But once I spent more time emailing back and forth with Elizabeth to plan their wedding photographer and engagement session I felt an immediate connection with her. I’m always excited to start working with a couple a their engagement session but I’m also a tad nervous. What if my personality is too much for them (I’m pretty smiley and giggly and, well, so excited to work with them… and I make noises because of that lol)? Not everyone is smiley and cracking jokes… BUT! My concerns we’re quickly erased when I met up with Elizabeth & Justin in person! I think you’ll notice that in their images below 😀
They met me just a couple blocks from my house in Fountain Avenue to shoot on the sidewalks in front of some of my favorite older homes in Paducah. I had been eying that location for weeks and as time grew on, the fall foliage became more colorful and more gorgeous so I knew it would be a great choice. We finished their session at none other than my parents’ property because I rarely can think of a prettier country setting than there.
