Engaged! Jaclyn + Adam

It's not only wedding season....it's engagement session season too! Amy and I have been meeting up with couples all over mid-Missouri these past two weeks. It's been a blast hanging out . . . chatting about wedding plans . . . having a few laughs . . . getting to know our couples a little bit better . . . and, oh yeah . . . making some pictures!

Jaclyn and Adam drove in from St. Louis for their engagement session . . . they're getting married this coming November in St. Genevieve at the Chaumette Winery. And look how ADORABLE (!) they are together:

ok, and check this out about Jaclyn: she designs shoes! And that's not all: she designed the actual shoes that she wore to our engagement shoot . . . somehow this seems amazing to me . . . that she starts with an idea, gets it on paper, and it results in shoes that people actually wear (ok, I know this has been happening for centuries, but I've never met a real shoe designer before). And I forgot to ask you, Jaclyn, if you're designing your own wedding shoes? 'cause if so, I'm planning on devoting an entire compact flash card to pictures of those shoes :')!

See more of their pics on this slideshow. Hey, if you love this song (like I do!), you've got to hear more from Thom Howard. He's a local musician extraordinaire, and he's played solo guitar (classic and finger-style) at three weddings Amy and I have photographed. He can play ANYTHING and he makes one guitar sound like 3 instruments all playing at once. He's talented AND he's a heck of a nice guy.

It's summer! It's t-shirt weather! Love is in the air . . . soak it up!
