will + jill {chattanooga engagement photographer}

He played a guitar in a band and she thought he was pretty hot. They hung out through mutual friends and Jill may or may not ;) have coaxed said friends into orchestrating the set up. During said setup (or not:) they played their fair share of Frisbee and pretty much “dated” 2 months before they started dating. Ya know what I’m saying?

His proposal was quicker than expected. He just could not wait any longer. While a valentine engagement was not something he expected and possibly thought was a bit cliche, it ended up being the perfect timing. The church was studying commitment and he and the remainder of the worship band at church made a video speaking about commitment. The beginning of the video he walked into the church and the video then panned off and he physically walked into the church. He walked up on stage. Said a few words and while Jill was on stage with him he asked her to marry him. She was pleasantly VERY surprised and most definitely said yes! Along with just knowing and not being able to wait comes a short engagement, because when you know, why wait, ya know? :)

So the following is what we came up with for Will and Jill’s engagement session. A couple with mounds of character and spunk. I had SO much fun shooting this couple! Seriously, you two are fantastic and can not wait to share in your wedding at the end of this month!

You two are seriously presh!

I kinda love this bike. . .It was my mother-in-laws when she was a little girl. . .a little red vintage tandem schwinn. . .seriously kinda love this thing! Here are some pictures that our family photographer took of us earlier this year with this same bike.

Will and Jill found these initials on a random wall in downtown Chattanooga. The initials kinda spoke to them,

Did I mention you two are presh? Cuz you are!

These are some staches and lips that I made for a project that is taking way too long to launch, so had to use them on Will and Jill cause they can rock the stache and oversized red lips

See even Jill can rock a stache!

These two are like two grown up kids. They are responsible fabulous adults, but really know how to have a good time so on my way out the door to meet them I saw Ada’s chalk and thought ya know, W & J would totally go for some chalk…and they did.

After tromping around photographing in random spots of downtown Chattanooga we headed to Will’s place of employment, Southtree and I feel in love with this swanky joint.

Will and Jill say they were born a couple of decades late because they love old school and I love the props they brought to show just that. Vinyl records coupled with a vintage video camera and camera. . .yum!

Jill, you are flippin’ beautiful and have I told you enough how much I love the flower in your hair? Cuz I do! These two have some serious style!

Fun with cameras. . .yup, I love these two and their fabulousness!

I think this has to be my favorite of the day. . .Huge Canvas? I think so!
