As I was chatting with Sarah over the phone about her wedding, visions, and style, I knew we were a perfect match. Her and Codi met while she was working at her Dad’s business. He came in one day and they hit it off. Codi proposed while vacationing in Glacier Park, Montana. Sarah came to me with a unique thought for her engagement session. She wanted to do part of the shoot styled in the 1920’s. They both really love that era and collect antiques and heirlooms from that generation. I was in LOVE with the idea! They wanted the shoot to resemble the movie “Lawless” that depicted a family who made their living off of moonshine in the 1920’s. Sarah has antique chairs, fur coats, pistols, the original blue mason jars they used for transport, and a Model A Ford. How cool is that?!?
For the first part of their session they wanted to take a few around the small town of Pleasant Hill, where they both work at a family owned grain elevator. The downtown area of Pleasant Hill is darling and has several older buildings. I love the small town atmosphere, everyone we passed on the street knew Sarah and Codi and stopped to chat. Their fur baby, June, also posed for some pictures. She is such a cute pup! Nick was unenthused when I came home requesting one just like her :)
Can’t wait for 2014 and their spring wedding!
