Mallory & Goss – Engagement Session – Goldsboro, North Carolina Wedding Photography

She’s genuine, insanely thoughtful, and has such a lovely smile.  He’s confident, naturally funny, and has some really cute dimples.  Meet Mallory & Goss as defined by each other.

I couldn’t have described them better myself!  The photos from their engagement session truly encompass their laughter, dimples, thoughtfulness, humor and their down-to-earth nature.

Kevin and I met up with the two of them on Mallory’s parents land.  She told us stories about growing up on this land, watching the animals, listening to the silence of nature and being free from the world, if only for a moment.  Goss reminisced the proposal.  They had spent the afternoon painting together, he isn’t so skilled in the painting department but Mallory loves being artsy so he knew this would totally surprise her.  Each of them painted their own masterpiece and then would reveal it.  When it got time to reveal to one another, his canvas said “Will you marry me?” and she didn’t know whether he was serious or not.  After convincing her that he was really serious, she said “Yes!” and their marriage adventure began.

Photographing on their land was so lovely.  The sun came out and kissed us…finally it felt like spring.  The green grass made a long-awaited appearance and the cows even drifted over for some close ups.

It was such a lovely afternoon.  We wrapped up their first outfit with the hay & the barn.  The barn is their family’s traditional Christmas card photo location so we wanted to tap into that and put Mallory & Goss’ own unique spin on the location.Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset013Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset014Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset015Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset016Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset017

After the barn, the sun began to set and we headed to Mallory’s parents’ house for some hot cocoa and s’mores.  Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset018Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset019

Mallory’s mom, Wanda, is such a DOLL and went over the top with the fire pit, lanterns, candles, flannel, homemade cocoa and HEART SHAPED MARSHMALLOWS!  How stinkin’ cute is that????  Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset020Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset021Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset022Goldsboro_North_Carolina_Wedding_Photography_Farm_Engagement_Campfire_Cocoa_Sunset023

As Kevin and I sipped on our cocoa & coffee, we kept looking at each other and smiling.  We felt so LOVED during their session; Goss, Mallory, and her parents went out of their way to serve us and welcome us at their home.

The smell of the cows, the sunlight peeking behind the trees, the look on Goss’ face when Mallory looks up at him, the hilarious stories about their travel adventures, and their desire to travel this great big world together; we will forever remember their engagement session.

Mallory & Goss– Thanks for having us along to share this crazy, wild ride with you.  We can’t wait to watch your relationship grow into a strong, successful marriage.  The next daring adventure you embark on, if you need some friends, give us a buzz.  We’ll be right there with you.  We pray that you both continue to follow your dreams and travel the world.
