Katie + Lucas | Norfolk Botanical Garden Engagement

When I met Katie and her mama a few weeks ago in Starbucks to discuss her wedding day, we were so much alike I told her Lucas was going to be in for it when it was engagement time! We are two peas in a pod and it makes it so easy for us to understand each other and for us to work together and never stop laughing! On a warm..unusually warm day…in October, we walked around the beautiful and still blooming Norfolk Botanical Gardens from location to location stopping every time I saw something picture worthy– which was often! They have such a variety of backdrops to use there I LOVE shooting there! 🙂

These two have absolutely no problem snuggling up and flirting..which is ALWAYS my goal! I LOVE when people realize that the more they are themselves together in front of the camera, the more they will love the results and feel like they are getting a true reflection of who they are in their images! They played, they laughed, we had a great time even in the heat..and I can’t say enough about how much I LOVE their images from this session!!! I think I need a canvas in my office of one of these shots!! 🙂 Thanks Katie and Lucas for being perfectly yourselves and SO in love 🙂 Can’t wait until September 2014!!!!!!! 🙂

    Katie is the sweetest girl I think I know. If Lucas is anything like her (which I am sure he is) this is a match made in heaven. I can not wait to see what magic you (Amanda) can bring out in these two already beautiful people! Love the Photos Katie….

    Amy and I (Mike) are Lucas’s parents. We have watched him grow into a young man that we are both extremely proud of both in his personal Christian testimony and his choice in Katie for his future wife. She is such a sweet young lady and they both naturally compliment each other. Looking forward to what the Lord has in store for their future together!!!
