John & Anna – Bowood Barn Engagement Session

This past Sunday, I got to hang out with these two! I was so excited to take their engagement photos at the venue they're getting married at! It's such a gorgeous barn venue and I die, I cannot wait for their wedding!

I was pretty worried that it would rain but the rain held off and so did the clouds!! We got some sunshine peeking through the clouds and it made my day.

John and Anna are just the cutest couple and there were so many laughs during our session. They shared with me earlier their proposal story which was sooo sweet! John proposed to Anna the night before her birthday, which also happened to be her mom’s birthday!! They and her family went out to eat and went back to Anna’s family’s home where John gave her sunflowers, balloons and a gift bag. And inside of it was a shirt that said “Off the market!” followed by THE RING! We had to include this in the engagement session and you can see the shirt at the bottom! 

Their September wedding is going to be so beautiful and I cannot wait to see these two get married!
