I’m a huge fan of tree lots around the holidays. Like huge.

You see, my sorority happens to have its very own philanthropic center in town, and each year to raise money for the foundation, they run the Shining Light Tree Lot.  And, each year I spend a few of my Saturdays (and Sundays) volunteering my time, selling trees and soaking in the fantastic smell that is Christmas Trees.

When I stumbled upon this engagement session by Jenna Walker Photography, I was a bit jealous.  Why hadn’t I thought of this? Le sigh.  Nonetheless, the couple, Julia and Jacob look like they had a fantastic time.  And, I bet they enjoyed their time together (and the smell of the trees) oh so much.

  1. That is a really cute shoot. They look so happy.

  2. GREAT IDEA! Seriously!

    One of my favorite things to do every year (the day after Thanksgiving) is to walk through the Ted Drewe’s tree lot!
