With all the ways we have to stay connected with each other, nothing beats the real thing. Soaking up moments in life together – not having to wait for a post on social media telling you about it. To laugh, be silly, or just smile, and not have those emotions reduced to emoticons in a text.
For me, this is what life is about and once a year I get to experience this with my whole family together, most who still call Ohio home.
It was such an amazing time, the weather was perfect, almost everyone was able to make it home (miss you Brett!), and we got to meet the newest member of the Hoskins crew, beautiful Evelyn. Life is good!
We met Amanda and JT a couple of years ago at Danny + Kelsey’s beautiful wedding, and were so happy when they contacted us after they got engaged! They’re getting married next summer at a vineyard in Northern California, and we are thrilled to be tagging along to document the day. We met up a couple of weeks ago near Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona for their engagement session, and it was such a fun afternoon getting to them better. It was like hanging out with long lost friends. I love how relaxed and natural all of these images feel.
Just as a side note, it’s a little to bittersweet to post these photos now, because the picturesque area we shot at is currently being threatened by the Slide Fire at Oak Creek Canyon. But I’m glad we were able to capture the area in all it’s glory before the fire happened. Our thoughts and prayers are with the brave men and women fighting the blaze.
Amanda and JT, come back to AZ soon! :)
