Nearly every engagement session we show up to reminds me of two things: a) Our clients are amazing, and b) The Walla Walla Valley is a beautiful place to live. To get to know each couple during one of the most exciting times in their lives is an unbelievable privilege. And to spend an evening photographing them in a spot they love, or doing a favorite activity, is probably my favorite part of the job. That, and watching the groom's face as he sees his bride for the first time ... It's my favorite expression in the whole world.
Anyway ... as I think about the couples we've spent time with this year and the ones we've yet to meet, I'm just so grateful for their willingness to share this time with us. I'm also thankful for rolling vineyards and painterly light and small-town charm. Travis and I couldn't ask for a better way to spend our days.
Thanks to Lucy and Rene for the lovely evening at Basel Cellars. You two are exactly why we love doing what we do!
