Taylor + Emily | A McDaniel Farm Park Engagement Session | Lawrenceville Wedding Photographer

Taylor and Emily (and their sweet pup, Zoey!) braved the super crowded McDaniel Farm Park for their engagement session this past weekend and it was absolute perfection! Zoey was a rockstar, posing (and even smiling!) for the camera and being a well mannered little pup in general. Meanwhile Taylor and Emily totally rocked out every pose and even put up with my excited ramblings when the sun made a brief appearance for a few glowing photos 🙂 I loved getting to meet these two (and some of their family!) and absolutely cannot wait for their CeNita Vineyard wedding in June!
