I think we can all agree: love at first sight is a beautiful, beautiful thing.  And when that amazing emotion overcomes two sweeties like this adorable duo, it’s an “I love you” on the first date, engagement within months kind of love story.  One that accumulates in an ohhhh-so-pretty engagement sesh captured by Cottrell Photography and features a whole lot of frolicking through fields and rivers + stylish everything.  See it all right here in the full gallery.

From the Bride-to-Be… Love at first sight does exist, and I was able to experience it with the greatest man alive. So, doing what any smart girl would do, I jumped in head first without any hesitation. January 24th marks our first date, first kiss, and first I love you’s. I think about how vast this universe is, and I had the privilege of meeting Brett.

Shortly after our relationship began, we knew marriage would come quickly, and we couldn’t wait for it. I would often talk to my friend Michael about Brett and the plans we were making. As a photographer, he would always say, “Well I better be your photographer.” September 13th we were engaged, and I couldn’t wait to share the news with Michael, mainly because I could not wait to ask him to shoot our wedding. I adore and appreciate his patience when it comes to capturing moments through pictures. He used his knowledge along with God’s gifts of light and His creation to tell our story. Our engagement session was full of fun and joy. Expressing the love we share for others to see was such an experience. Michael’s knowledge of photography is so evident with the precious moments he captured. People get a glimpse of the love we share through these exceptional pictures. I am grateful that many years to come Brett and I will have these beautiful reminders of exciting love and the beginning of our journey together.
