Derek + Cortney | Engagement | Adel, GA Wedding Photographer

Sometimes you don’t need words to describe how much fun a couple has in each other’s presence. I feel like that’s exactly what these photographs portray and what it’s like to be around Derek + Cortney. I loved every bit of my session with these two. From the handmade quilt that is a relic from Cortney’s family (she pulled it out of her hope chest just for the engagement session) to the antler prop to the love and laughter, this session simply warms my heart!

The tree was creaking and Cortney freaked out! But she soon settled in and put her trust in her man.

I was told Derek doesn’t like to have his photo taken. I think I may have been bamboozled…

Oh.My.Gah. Cortney…you are the prettiest thing ever!
