a blustery day: ashlee and russ

It’s true, I LOVE engagement sessions! I admit, it’s an obsession! There is nothing greater than 2 people in love, spending time capturing their emotions, without the time constraints of a wedding day. I can’t think of many people, who find opportunities to do this at any other stage in their lives (although, I highly suggest it). Seriously, as a couple’s love grows and matures with years of love, adoration and respect it seems fitting to document it occasionally. Hmmm… anniversary sessions anyone?

I met up with Ashlee and Russ at Fort Desoto, on what happened to be a blustery day. Blustery actually may be an understatement, as more times than not we were dodging the wind, the whipping sand, the crashing waves and praying that the rain held off… which it did, showering down little sprinkles as we drove away.

Here are a few of my favorites from our time together!

Love this one!

These next 3 are my favorite series of  up close images to date! Oh la la! 


I had to post this just so you could see the sand blowing around. Ashlee and Russ were such troopers, even as it flew right into their eyes! 

Closing out in the water- another couple of breathtaking images!

Thanks Ashlee and Russ for hanging out, chatting about the big day and allowing me to capture these moments for you! I’m already looking forward to your wedding!
