When I first met Jacob & Stephanie we instantly clicked. Maybe it’s because we share a name and the same wedding date (11 years apart), but I knew they were going to be an amazing couple to work with. Their engagement session solidified the thought.
When we got talking about their wedding day, they told me their inspiration was very woodsy and natural. Their eyes lit up when I suggested we make the trek to Cloudcroft, NM for their engagement photos. They came up the weekend prior to do some scouting around, as they are more familiar with the area than I am and WOW did they strike big!
During their scouting visit Jacob convinced Stephanie to let him play a round of golf at The Lodge Resort & Spa while they were in the area. She told me she was hesitant because Jacob takes his golfing very seriously… thus would take a long time. However, had it not been for that round of golf they wouldn’t have gotten the idea to ask the resort if they could have their photos taken on the grounds! We are SO happy they agreed!
We drove around in golf carts, saw a deer, and watched hummingbirds flit across the pond. Simply put it was just a magical engagement session. View their video slideshow below!
I cannot wait until Jacob and Stephanie’s wedding next June! I am so lucky to have some wonderful clients! We’re also wedding date twins! (Just eleven years apart!) It’s going to be beautiful!
