I love when I get to travel for my job and when it is in a family member’s city, that is even better! I grew up right outside of Ocean Springs, Mississippi. My dad recently moved back to the area, so this engagement session was extra special to me. Not only because I love going home but also because I have known the groom, Ethan, since he was a baby as his mom and my mom were best friends for a long time.
Not only did I have the best time photographing Ethan and Hanna and attending their engagement party, but I also got to spend some much-needed time with my dad. It was so special. Ethan and Hanna met in ninth grade and are getting married next October! I am so excited to watch them grow over the next year before their wedding.
We decided to capture their engagement session at Twelve Oaks Nature Trail near Ocean Springs. Twelve Oaks Nature Trail is a gorgeous line of trees that lasts 1/2 mile and is over 400 years old! It is one of the most stunning places I have been and is also very relaxing. For our second location, we were outside The Roost, a local boutique hotel. This couple is something special.
Thank you so much, Ethan and Hanna. Is it October yet?!
I would love to chat about your 2023 wedding!
