Engaged | Matt + Brooke

Y'all. Have you ever hung out with a couple that's obnoxiously in love and it just kind of makes you sick (in a good, happy-for-you way)? I think we all can answer a resounding yes here. I know, I came out guns blazing in the first sentence... bare with me.

I've known OF Matt and Brooke for a really long time. I never was super close with either one of them, but our paths have continuously crossed for YEARS and these two have been together ever since, and their love for one another is one of the strongest I've ever seen. You just don't know Matt without Brooke, and vice versa. I think the entire world (me included!) celebrated with them when he proposed because these two were absolutely, 200% made for one another.

Brooke is a Registered Nurse, and Matt is a firefighter. Can we talk about the fact that not only do they love each other fiercely, but they've both equally dedicated their lives to serving others? When I say I'm blessed with the most amazing clients, I mean it.

Men don't enjoy pictures - it's kind of a fact. I'm not going to say Matt was pumped, I'm confident he was being bribed with a post-session dinner date - fair enough! Food works as a fabulous incentive for me, too, I get it. But, it says a lot about a man to see that they just know how much this means to their significant other to just play along and have a good time. He didn't even second guess it. I remember standing in that field taking a second to adjust my settings after we had done a few poses of him holding her, and I heard him say "I just want to spin you around!" Dude, what?! I've never taken so many frames in my life. These are the moments I live for. I don't work to force these things, that's not fun or fair for either one of us. I just document them as they happen, because these moments are the most beautiful moments in their candid state.

It's been almost a week, and I'm still kind of mopping myself off the floor. Goodness, I cannot wait for their fall wedding!
