Merrill & Thomas are an absolutely dream! From the moment she contacted us to when we met and started the session, I knew this would be a great one! They actually picked me up from my house and we headed over to the Dale Earnhardt The Venues where they will also be having their engagement session! We immediately started shooting and I could tell that these two were fun and madly in love which are 2 key ingredients to an amazing session! Also, they had a secret weapon, the cutest pup in the world, Luke! Luke enjoyed life and ran around as we shot but when it was time for his photo-op he showed up! All of this put together made for a killer combo!
Thee two met a long time ago in school and went to college near by so you can see how comfortable they are with each other! Merrill is the most kind soul you would ever meet. She was super thoughtful the whole time and seriously made my job easy! Thomas is an incredible compliment to her. The way he looks at her gives you all of the heart eyes and the way he cares for them and their future wedding is just awesome! Also, I think we may play in a flag football tournament so I’m super pumped for that!
One thing I LOVED about the session were the gorgeous outfits and the amazing grounds! The Dale Earnhardt pavilion is a gorgeous spot architecturally and with these two, it was a show-stopper. They also had the coolest bamboo forest that we planned and dreamed of how we would use for the wedding! After the session, we enjoyed some beer and chatted about life, I’m excited about this friendship!
We hope you all enjoy the photos because we are head over heels for these two and these photos!
