Ahhhh! I just finished editing Ale & Zack’s engagement photos and need to share them right now. We rescheduled their session twice because of below freezing winter storms. On our third try, we lucked out with a sunny, 70 degree day. In January! It was worth the wait. Ale wore three gorgeous dresses. The first dress – a last minute addition – was a glamorous short wedding dress with a long, lacy cape train. It had exposed shoulders and long 80’s inspired sleeves. She said this isn’t her wedding dress, but she may wear it to a bridal shower or a wedding after party. How fun! Her second and ..read more
