Danielle & Jordan | Love Story

Engagement sessions are such a great way to get to know our couples before we photograph their wedding day, however in Danielle and Jordan’s case we already knew them so that made their engagement session that much more fun.  We photographed Danielle’s sister’s wedding several years ago and have done family photos for Danielle and Jordan, so it was great to catch up with them at their session.  When Danielle contacted me and said she had access to an old rock quarry and wondered about doing their session out there, my immediate response was YES! Absolutely, yes! Sometimes it can be hard to find new and unique places to do sessions so when the opportunity arose we were excited. Add in the fact that the quarry was beautiful, it was the perfect combination of unique and gorgeous. We had so many favorites from their session so be prepared for a bit of picture overload, but we couldn’t help it! We can’t wait for Danielle and Jordan’s wedding this November and are looking forward to capturing so many more memories for them. We hope you enjoy some of our favorites!
