Kelli & Chuck | Auburn Engagement Photographer

Oh my goodness! I don’t even know where to start with this e-session. It was fun, different, all over the place, and pretty much all-around-wonderful. When I spoke to Kelli about her {and Chuck’s} e-session, I was so excited to learn that we had very similar ideas. Chuck has a friend who has a beautiful farm in Auburn, so she wanted to shoot there, and we were thinking that a session at a farmer’s market would be fun. When I told Kelli that, she loved the idea too, and she suggested the Blooming Colors Market {a cute farmer’s market that I didn’t know about yet}. The market is behind Blooming Colors Nursery, and also has a lovely little restaurant inside of it, Crepe Myrtle Cafe. When I called the market to see if they were OK with us shooting there, the manager was just as excited by the idea as Kelli and I were!

We met Kelli and Chuck at their home in Auburn, where we snapped a few photos of them with their pups. Then we headed over to the farmer’s market, and it was absolutely wonderful. Kelli and Chuck goofed around, played, acted silly and were so much fun to photograph. After we finished up at the farmer’s market, we headed over to Chuck’s friend’s farm, and it was amazing. Thomas and I were seriously in heaven. Every place on the farm had so much potential. We were like kids in a candy store, and we couldn’t decide where to shoot first. We all had a blast…I think Chuck even had a good time. {He and Thomas spent a good bit of the time between photos talking about hunting, tractors, and other masculine things, so I think that made it a bit more bearable.} 😉 Kelli and I had lots of fun too…but we talked more about wedding stuff and stayed out of the boys’ hunting conversations.

One of my favorite things about the day? Before we left, Chuck told us he figured a session like that would be a good thing to do about once a year. When I asked him why, he said he thought it would probably be good for a marriage. {I’m pretty sure because of all the huggy, kissy and lovey stuff involved in the session.} That was the first time anyone had ever said that to us…and I loved it. I especially love that it came from the groom.

I’ve reeeeeaaallly struggled to choose photos for this post because there are so many fun moments, great expressions and lovely details, so I’ve included a lot here. There are lots more, but we wanted to leave a few surprises for Kelli and Chuck.

Did I mention Chuck can juggle? {So fun!}

And I almost forgot…another awesome moment of the day?! When we were on the farm we stopped to take some photos by the pond, and two alligators decided to make an appearance. One even hung around and posed for some photos.

Kelli and Chuck, we had such fun spending the afternoon with y’all! 😉 Let’s do it again soon…but maybe we’ll leave the cameras at home {for a little while} next time. We are super excited about photographing your wedding…I know it’s going to be a blast too!

{Special thanks to the folks at the Blooming Colors Market for the hospitality. We loved everything about the market, and we can’t wait to come back for lunch at the cafe!}

    Kia, that alligator was trippy. {We’re convinced he knows people bring food. Can’t figure out why else he would have been so curious about us!} 😉
