Jenn & Doug | Soft Organic Engagement Photos

 

Soft Organic Engagement Photos | Terry Hershey Park

You won’t meet anyone more kind and gentle than Jennifer and Doug is her sweet and hilarious counterpart.  Soft organic engagement photos really suit this couple and their style perfectly!   I’m pretty sure Doug missed his calling into the modeling world! : ) Doug, you crushed it and I can’t wait for all the fun you’ll have on the wedding day with Kellan!  You guys are two peas in a pod!

First of all, when we first met Jennifer & Doug, we all chatted for three hours over champagne and chocolate cake!  It was the perfect beginning to our friendship with this sweet couple! These lovebirds met through mutual friends and are going on two and half years of dating.  Doug’s proposal story, probably one of our favorites, included a sweet surprise date to Brenner’s on the Bayou.  Doug got down on one knee outside, while their family and friends watched from up above in a private room waiting for them to come celebrate. What a sweet way to include family and friends while still having that private moment alone!

We loved hearing all about their love story and their plans for their classy September wedding at Ashton Gardens West!  We couldn’t be more excited to work with their amazing planner, Beth Rice of Keely Thorne Events.  They always knock it out of the park with their amazing attention to detail!  Also, we love photographing new venues and we just know this is going to be one of our favorite weddings for sure!   Jenn & Doug couldn’t be more kind and loving so we know their friends and family are going to be so great as well!   It’s truly a dream come true to be a part of this amazing time in their lives.  We can’t wait to meet and photograph all of the kind, fun loving people that have made this couple into who they are today.
