A Guitar Inspired Spring Engagement Session

April 27, 2016


We first connect with Emily and Aaron through Emily’s best friend, Brittany. Brittany also happens to be the owner of Inspired Help! When Brittany first reached out to us to tell us the great news that her best friend was engaged we were so excited to meet her & her fiance! We had such a fantastic time meeting with them and finding out more about their love story. Surprisingly, we haven’t had a couple bring guitar to their engagement session in quite a while, so when we saw the Aaron had brought his guitar we were so excited! Because, seriously, what is better than taking photos with live music playing!?


When we first met with Aaron and Emily to chat about their wedding day they told us a little bit about their story as well. One of the things that we absolutely loved about this couple is that they actually met at church while they were working with the church youth group.

It also allows them to get comfortable in front of our camera so that on the wedding day it’s a less intimidating experience, it’s way more fun to take photos with your friends and strangers.

Not only did they bring their cat, but they also brought a bowtie for him! How awesome is that?!
