Lush, Flower-Filled Engagement | Roanoke, Indiana


Goodness, gracious… The weather really threw this sweet couple’s engagement photos for a loop! The week before Kendra and Andrew’s session, we had scheduled to shoot during what happened to be the one TWO-HOUR SEGMENT OF DOWNPOUR that we’d had in weeks! 😐 As you can assume, yes, I was very frustrated. And I know Kendra was so disappointed, it broke my heart!

So our reschedule date came and boy it was HOT. I mean, I definitely sweat any traces of makeup clean off in a matter of minutes! I always start my sessions with a little pep talk to my couple. I tell them what they can expect, what my plan is in regards to how much daylight we have, etc. I could tell these two were a little hesitant, somewhat quiet (unlike me, haha!) but I reassured them that 1. they looked GREAT and 2. this is super casual, just us hanging out, getting to know each other before the wedding day!

I know for a fact they thought I was C R A Z Y during this session. It didn’t take me long to have them standing in some landscaping, I was shooting through flowers, looking like a creeper in the bushes, ya know… typical Courtney shooting behavior. But NOW I’m happy to show them what I was seeing through MY POINT OF VIEW.

Their images are jam-packed full of foreground elements. I LOVE FOREGROUND in my images to not only make it interesting but HIDE distractions! When you’re shooting in a downtown environment, you have to a lot to work around–cars, trash cans, signs, all kinds of stuff! And luckily, I found two big bushes of pink roses and white hydrangeas and ya girl, here, was in heaven!

Kendra, Andrew, this is what I saw while shooting through the bushes like a creeper. Looks better than you thought, right?? Enjoy! xo, Court

I’m obsessed with this romper, it’s SO freaking cute! I love it when my couples’ “casual” outfit is still pretty dressy. Kendra knocked it out of the park with her outfits!
