Sometimes you feel an undeniable connection to the couples that you photograph.
That connection goes beyond just sharing their story, to actually being invested in their story. As a photographer, you begin to feel that this special couple has been brought into your life for a reason – and whether that is a season or forever – you can’t help but feel invested in the outcome of their relationship.
That is how I feel about Ross & Laurie.
They are such a fun, and delightful, and completely-off-the-charts adorable couple… but there is just something more about them that makes them very special. Maybe it’s the way Ross prays before we go out and do a shoot. Maybe it’s because Ross & Laurie actually did the legwork to scout for their engagement shoot and photographers love that effort! Perhaps it is because they just have such a natural grace when they are around each other so it’s fun to be around them.
Though I am not sure what it is, I know that I have been absolutely captivated by Ross & Laurie’s story and I continually reflect on what an honor it is for me to get to share it!
This is part II of our adventure to Barrel Oak Winery (BOW) and my favorite Starbucks couple pulled out all the stops by the time we got to the winery side of BOW. We started with a picnic under a giant oak tree nestled quietly amidst the mountains. Then we went inside BOW to meet the staff and so Ross and Laurie could show me around. We stopped at the willow tree (*swoon*) where I could take some “romantical” pictures and Ross could pick Laurie a flower, and then of course create a monkey tail out of the willow tree, and then we sprinted along the wheat fields as the sun went down.
All in all – a perfect day!
We were so grateful to the owners of BOW for letting us have the run of the property and I can’t wait to take my hubs back to see it (psst, click on the logo below to hop on over to their website!)
One word about “Winederful” Barrel Oak Winery – *swoon*
If you haven’t been to BOW – go! Pack up the fam, the dogs, the picnic and go! It is not only gorgeous country, but they have outdoor seating, wine tasting, and the owners are FAN-tabulous! It’s just a great place to chill out for the afternoon.
Did I mention you can bring your dog? OOOO such fun!
