Allison and Hunter were so much fun to work with! They were very easy going and open to any suggestions we had. We love Oak Mountain park and knew that the bird sanctuary would be so much fun to shoot. It always has beautiful shade and is different from what we usually do. We started on the board walk where we took advantage of the tree house like surroundings and got some precious shots of the couple. A couple of owls even snuggled for a shot in the screech owl exhibit.  Allison and Hunter share a fur baby together, Oakley the pup- and she did so good! She was very excited to be a part of the session and even helped announce their date with a little chalkboard. We were surprised by how well mannered she is, you can tell that the couple spends a lot of time with Oakley and love her very much.

After the bird sanctuary we decided to head down to one of our favorite spots at oak mountain where the grass is tall and the light comes through the trees perfectly. Allison brought smoke bombs for the end of the shoot and it was awesome! We have never used them before so it took a couple of tries to figure it out but we ended up getting some dreamy photos of the two of them enveloped in smoke.

We hope that we get another shot at those smoke bombs in October at their wedding. How gorgeous would Allison be in her amazing gown surrounded by smoke wrapped in the arms of Hunter?  We seriously can’t wait!

We hope you enjoy this fun preview see just a taste of how much fun we had!
