Every so often I'll get a couple who is so natural together, I don't have to pose them. I love the way these two just ARE together. I mean, Carine is holding David while he plays with her hair. Can it get any sweeter? One of my tips for your engagement session: never stop touching each other. Hold hands, hug, nuzzle, dance, walk together, be with each other. It's those little moments in-between you smiling at the camera that truly show your love for each other. #stephsmithweddings #engaged #engagementphotos #arkansasbride #arkansasphotographer
I had a Skype call with Carine and David a few months ago to get to know them and see if we'd be a good fit for their wedding. And guys, Ava was home from school that day. Bless her little heart, she tried to stay away, but the TV wasn't working and she was frustrated and despite interrupting our very first meeting together, these two STILL booked me for their wedding next year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If that doesn't say so much about them, I don't know what else does. They are kind and patient and so so good together. Thank you both for being so amazing. Can't wait to celebrate with you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #stephsmithweddings #engaged #engagementphotos #arkansasbride #arkansasphotographer
When we first met in person, they had already booked me for their wedding. We drank coffee, chatted about work and life, connected enough to know we definitely all liked each other. But then. Then I needed a babysitter last minute. And Kara volunteered. While I'm always nervous about brides seeing my messy life and crazy kids, she was warm and gracious and so good with them. She even came back to watch them again. That's huge. And then we had coffee one day, and found out we are so much more deeply connected than I ever thought. I even cried in front of her. And y'all, even after being so real and vulnerable in front of her, she still wants me there on her wedding day. Kara and Blane, you two mean so much more to me than you know. I can't wait for your wedding day. I am so glad to know you, but even more, so glad you found each other.

I got an email from @karamorriss a few weeks before her engagement session. The subject line said Engagement session and my bad fashion sense. ♥️ I absolutely adore this girl so much. She knew I offered styling services to my couples, so I was SO HAPPY to help her out. Kara is stunning and tall, so we picked out this beautiful dress from @asos for her to wear. It was elegant, fun, and perfectly her. Hair: Kristen @Crownbeautybar Makeup: Jessi @glolimitednwa #stephsmithweddings #engaged #engagementphotos #arkansasbride #arkansasphotographer
