I really love Alison Conklin Photography. She is lucky enough to capture some pretty awesome love, and she does it so well. Her couples always put a smile on my face, so when she sent over this lakeside engagement session, I knew it was the perfect exclamation point to a very pretty week on the LBB Blog. So start your weekend with a smile, my loves, and when you meet me back here Monday morning, I promise more smiles will be awaiting you! xoxo
