Excuse me while I gush over this beautiful couple, but I’m beyond excited to share photos of Declan and Sarah’s fall engagement session in Hobart, Indiana! I met Declan and Sarah in a Bible study at Saint Joseph’s College, where the tree of us attended school (#PumaNation). There is nothing more exciting to me than seeing a new family form that is founded in Christ from the start.
Sarah should seriously write a book about planning a wedding. I thought I was a prepared bride, but Sarah is the champion of brides. Declan popped the question at County Line Orchard, and Sarah contacted me about both engagement and wedding photos less than a week later. By the time we met for their engagement session, Sarah and Declan already had colors chosen, venues booked, and the bridal party chosen. I was impressed!
When Sarah contacted me about photos, she knew wanted a fall engagement session in Hobart, Indiana at Deep River Park. I hadn’t been to this county park before, so I was nervous, but I’m so glad Sarah suggested this location! It is gorgeous in the fall, and the fact that the park was crawling with photographers proves that.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever worked with a couple who poses as naturally as Sarah and Declan do. I asked them if they practiced before the session, and Sarah said, “Actually, I did make him look at my Pinterest boards!” Declan clearly studied up. I pretty much told this couple where to stand, watched the magic unfold, and pressed a button. Declan and Sarah are just naturally cute, sweet, and in love. I do owe my husband, Zach, a shout out for being my assistant during this session. He has officially mastered the use of the reflector!
I’m counting the days until Declan and Sarah’s October 2017 wedding! Declan and Sarah, as you prepare for your big day, my prayer for you is that you remember a wedding is just a day, but a marriage is a lifetime and a gift from God. I pray that Christ will always stay at the center of your marriage and that your lives will glorify Him. Congratulations on your engagement!
