This session … a session I won’t forget! Let me just start off by saying that I try to be fully under control from beginning to end, but there came a moment in Kenny and Natasha’s session where I just freaked! We were in a field when I asked them to lay on the ground for a shot not realizing something was terribly wrong … As I picked up my camera, I noticed something big on Kenny’s arm … it was a big … hairy … wolf spider! Seriously, I went into shock that nothing would come out of my mouth except to scream! Lol! After they jumped up and found the spider on the ground, the spider had babies on its back … well, that was the end of any ground shots. Lol!

Kenny and Natasha are absolutely ADORABLE! Seeing each other goof around throughout the session made me smile inside and out! The cows definitely loved this couple, especially Kenny as they would sneak up on his throughout the session inside the field. Lol! Great moments. 🙂

Here is their love story written from Natasha’s point of view:
We met at Lake Anna on Memorial Day Weekend, 2011.  A long-time friend, George, has a lake house where a bunch of us get together over the summer.  George worked with Kenny and asked if he would like to come for Memorial Day festivities.  We met and hit it off right away.  He says, “You had a bikini on and a cowboy hat, what’s not to like?!”  LOL

 He had the proposal all planned out and was going to ask me this coming Memorial Day weekend in front of all of our friends because he knew that would be special to me.  But…he couldn’t wait.  He asked me at home after we had a great relaxing day together.  It just felt right!

CONGRATS Kenny and Natasha! So excited for your big day and wishing you the absolute best as the wedding approaches! 🙂

  1. […] they just have fun moments … like if you remember the fabulous cow photo bomber in their engagement session! Also they had the not so fun moment of discovering a big MOMMA wolf spider on Kenny when setting […]
