Back at the site of what Abby and Derron said was the best date they've ever been on, we walked around the grounds of Fair Park's art deco buildings and beautiful landscaping. They told me about how Abby first noticed Derron reading at their university library and how annoyed he was when she interrupted his book, but then realized the interruption might not be so bad.
When I asked Alyssa what she loves about Cody, she said his bravery and selflessness, and how he can always make her laugh when she needs it most. I love that I got to capture that in this session.
Emily and Joel's engagement session went down as an all time fave for lots of reasons (cutest dog ever, right?), but mainly because they brought a blanket and explained to me that every important conversation they've ever had has taken place under it—pillow-fort style—including the first "I love you's." THIS IS THE MAGIC STUFF, PEOPLE. I love it. I live for it. Tell me your secrets and bring me your secret fort blankets that make up your stories.
