Jennifer + Jake...Engagement Portraits

Yesterday's engagement session was just a little sweeter and a little more special than usual...because Jennifer is actually my cousin! Well, a cousin by marriage. So does that make Jake my future step-cousin-in-law? haha
Somantics aside, I have known Jennifer since we were little kids and it is so wonderful that she has found LOVE and even more wonderful that I get to capture this special time for them. So let's get to my favorite images from their session!

VOTE for your favorite in the COMMENTS section below. Jennifer and Jake will receive an 8x10 of the most popular image!

We started at the Uptown where they will hold their reception in November to celebrate their newlywed status...

Jennifer's smile is usually accompanied by a really cute giggle. I can hear it now...

When I sat Jake on the ground, he couldn't keep his hands off Jennifer's legs! Loved it. She does have some fantastic legs. ;-)

An odd shot, I'll admit. But I enjoy odd...

I went a little crazy at this fence, but the light was SWEET!

We made a quick pit-stop. Mission Pet Mart is owned by Jake's aunt and uncle, and we couldn't resist this mural. Jake actually helped paint the wall...the blue base. Jake's aunt is responsible for the amazing animals.

I watched the fishies swim while Jennifer and Jake could slip into something a little more comfortable...

Our final destination...

Jake took Jennifer to a Pizza Shoppe for their first date, which is a source of great amusement for many family and friends. So we had to stop for some pizza and capture some images where it all began. Love amongst the pizza and "pink stuff"...

Mary said...

I love them all but # 23 has got to be the sweetest and shows how in love Jenny & Jake are.

Alexa said...

Love 10, 11 and 23. Mom

Debra said...

Love them all, but I would have to say my favorite is #23! They are all so great - I also love the pizza shoppe ones as well as the fish one! :)

Sarah said...

They're all so good! 23 is my favorite, too!

Kate said...

Definitely #10 or #23...those two were more all about you two and nothing else. That's what it's all about!

However, I have to say the Mission Pet Mart and Pizza Shoppe ones were cute for a photo album to show your kids.

I love 22, but 25 is pretty funny too! Hmmm.. can we vote for two? Great pics! jenny

jenny greene said...

Great shots! Red door is my favorite! You two look great together!

Kayla South said...

#23 is by far my favorite. Even in an extreme close up, you can see how much they love one another by just looking at their eyes! Perfect!!

Valerie said...

They are so great! Sarah, you did a wonderful job and you are so creative. I bet it's easier when you have a couple that is obviously so much in love. I'm the oddball, but I really liked #5 and #6. Of course, 23 is a definite keeper too. Congrats!!!

Oo, oo...ok, lots and lots of favorites from this shoot. I've got it narrowed down (difficultly) to three: #16 (I'm a HUGE sucker for some fabulous sun flare), #23, & #25... I love this session...I feel like I was there.

Pam said...

No question about it # 23! # 26 is definitely a close second!
