Adorabella Photography

From the Bride-to-be:
Our engagement photo shoot with Charity was one of the coolest things we’ve ever gotten to do as a couple, and that’s saying a lot considering all the traveling and other adventures we have experienced over the past few years! We LOVED the location of our shoot and even the end of summer heat couldn’t ruin our fun. Charity did a great job of capturing “us” and telling the story of our relationship with her photos. Since posting our engagement pictures on Facebook I’ve had countless people comment that they are ”the most gorgeous pictures they’ve ever seen” and “oh my gosh, just imagine how fabulous your wedding pictures are going to be!” We loved every minute of our shoot and we were so impressed with Charity’s gentle but precise directions. We are not models but she sure made us look like ones! Undoubtedly our best memory from the day was when we were wrapping up the shoot with a scene where Tom and I were both sitting on an old fence…which collapsed right in the middle of a shot! We were laughing so hard I don’t think Charity knew if we were hurt or embarrassed (I was wearing a dress!) but she politely waited to laugh until she knew we were not injured…then we all laughed hysterically! We will always look back fondly on that day and marvel at the way Charity captured our feelings for each other in such beautiful pictures. Her pictures are worth a million words!
