I love this blog post and I can’t decide why I love it so much. The images are lovely, but I think the people in them are the best part. Meet Dana & Zane.
Dana is a gem; I swear the Lord dropped her in my lap and said, “Here you go, B. Your life will be a better place because this girl is in it.” Dana has been my intern for a while and has become one of my dearest friends. I’ve gotten the honor of seeing her grow into a super talented artist and photographer, too. She’s got a heart of gold and goes above and beyond to serve our business; she’s always there whenever I need her. Being that tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I thought it was fitting to share this post today because Dana has been such a huge blessing in my life this year. I literally couldn’t have made it without her. From responding to emails, keeping me organized, sharing new music, mailing things, burning discs, being my friend and all the other things she did for me; she most definitely made my life a little bit easier and more fun, too! It has been such a joy to get to know her; our time spent editing and eating and laughing together will always be some of my dearest memories.
Dana & Zane are perfect for each other. I remember meeting Zane for the first time; seeing the two of them interact together was just so cute. Zane is selfless, strong and confident, and totally head-over-heels in love with Dana. Dana clearly adores him; good thing she snatched him up when she did because he is quite the charmer. He is a dreamer, too, but a selfless one; he values Dana and her dreams even more than his own. Together they aren’t afraid to be vulnerable and dream BIG, HUGE dreams together. They are so young, creative, passionate and so talented..I think unstoppable is a good word to define them and I can’t wait to see where they are in 5 years. One thing is for sure, no matter where life takes them, there will always be a place in our home for the two of them…and without a doubt, the dog Liza will be right there snuggled beside them. (In case you didn’t know, Liza is our sweet German Shepard/Husky Mix. She has her own hashtag, #thedogliza, and she’s kind of obsessed with Dana….like seriously.)
It was such a privilege to photograph Dana & Zane for their engagement session. They both value the arts, so photography is a big deal to them. Seeing them so excited about their photos made me that much more excited to be taking them. They had a very specific vision they wanted to achieve and I think we did just that. I hope you enjoy looking at their woodsy fall engagement session. Grab you a cup of coffee and enjoy!
Dana & Zane – I hope you know how much we love you. We’re so grateful to call you our friends. Thanks for entrusting us to capture some of your most exciting moments together. We’re honored to be your photographers and can’t wait for your wedding day!
