Hannah + Wes | Cedar Falls Park Engagement Session

I’ve actually known these two since they were in high school… which I’m realizing wasn’t all that recent!  Wes used to mow my grass (before I owned a lawn mower) and believe it or not, he’s the reason I started photographing in manual mode (I’m not sure that he even knows that!).  He asked me one time if I was shooting on manual and when I said no, he simply asked me, “Why not?”  And I couldn’t give him a good answer so I made myself learn how to do it and I’ve never looked back!

Hannah and Wes have known each other for quite a while.  But it wasn’t until they both spent the summer in Allendale, SC serving the community that they got to know each other better.  They spent a lot of their off time together and by the last week of the summer, Wes asked her out on their first date.  And as nervous as they both were, they had a blast at dinner, a Hillsong concert and then wandering downtown with ice cream cones.

They would be the first to tell you that their relationship hasn’t been 100% smooth sailing.  But that’s the beauty of God and following His plans for us instead of our own.  He brings people together at just the right time and molds them for that specific moment!  Hannah and Wes both want nothing more than to follow Him, serve Him and bring others to Him.  And I really believe that with their lives reflecting that, God is going to use them in incredible ways as husband and wife… especially since He’s already done so much in and through them already.

These guys love adventure.  In fact, when we decided to go to Cedar Falls Park after it had been raining for several days, I knew that Wes would be regretting NOT bringing his kayak!  Although, I may have had a heart attack watching him try to go down these falls so it’s best for all of us that he left it at home :-)  However, that didn’t stop him (or Hannah for that matter!) from climbing and adventuring during our session.  Enjoy some of my favorites!

Yes, you see this correctly.  They BOTH climbed this tree!  I definitely kept both of my feet firmly planted on the ground.

I can’t help but thinK “Hannah and Wes, sittin’ in a tree…”

They laugh so well together.

    Wesley is my grandson, seldom seen in recent times except thru pictures, but love him lots. Only met Hannah one time for a couple days at my beach house and would love to see both of them more often. Lovely young woman. Kudos to Hannah for climbing the tree barefoot. To Wesley: Shades of Pa Gant – – hands in pockets! Love you both! Fantastic pictures! Nana
