Kelly and CJ Are Engaged! {Pratt Place Inn and Barn, Core Brewing Company}

February 12, 2014



Hello hello Facebook & blog fans and friends! We’re so glad to have you stop by to meet this sweet duo.

We had been anticipating this session since last August when we first “met” these two through our 2014 Wedding Photography Giveaway. Kelly’s entry immediately caught our attention because we felt an instant connection to her and CJ’s love story. Combine that with their incredible story of service and giving back.… and ta-da! They became the lucky winners of over $2500 of wedding photography, including the engagement session you are about to see!

So, while they got lucky on the giveaway… we were not so lucky on the weather the day of their session. It was drizzling and bitterly cold – probably some of the worst conditions you could imagine! Kelly had driven in to Northwest Arkansas all the way from Atlanta, so there was no turning back.

So, what does one do under such circumstances?

Find an old-fashioned inn with a wrap-around porch… and then head to a micro-brewery for some crazy, unique shots! Thank you to Pratt Place Inn and Barn of Fayetteville, Arkansas and Core Brewing Company and Distillery for graciously allowing us the use of your incredible venues for this session.

Now, let me stop here on Kelly and CJ for moment, because this post is special for an entirely different reason. We are, for the very first time, debuting our BRAND NEW LOGO! Take a look!


What do you think? I’ve played around quite a bit with the size and placement of it for this session…. let us know what you think!

Ok, ok… without further ado… I present Kelly and CJ:


Kelly was such a trooper in the freezing cold! She was THRILLED when we made it to the Core Brewing Company in Springdale for some indoor shots.


A little behind-the-scenes fun for you:


We love these two so very much and are privileged to share in their day!
