From the photographer
“I know we’re young, but we have the kind of love that could last forever. Let us grow together, have our root intertwined, and our souls merged.” -Unknown
To meet the one your soul feels an immediate connection to is special. These high school sweet hearts fell in love and as the years have passed, it has only grown stronger. We designed and styled this session as their dream elopement. Shantel loves the forest and Brian adores her. So we drew inspiration from old love letters. We found a quote that perfectly depicted the emotions felt between these two. Their connection evident in every image. It was intimate, every detail meaningful… thoughtfully put together. It was an absolutely beautiful evening among the trees.
