Happy New Year! 2012 is going to be awesome and we’re going to hit the ground running with this great engagement session — my last of 2011!

      I absolutely loved spending time with Hannah and Brent. They found me through Offbeat Bride and I knew that we were an awesome match when I asked them to step into a pile of thorny branches for a shot “because it’s going to be amazing!” and there was not a word of protest.

      My adoration was clinched when Hannah quoted Wayne’s World. Yes. A thousand times, yes. Talk like Garth to me.

      This is Part 1 of their engagement session, the sweet bit :) Part 2 will be messy!
