Sweet Small Town Missouri Engagement Session // Ryan + Briana

Ahhhh these two! Two years ago, I photographed a beautiful wedding in Kahoka, Missouri.. a super fun wedding that may or may not have ended with me jumping into a pond in my dress clothes with some of the cooler members of the bridal party. Briana was the little sister of that bride—one of the cooler people I just mentioned ;) She reached out a couple months ago and asked me to be her wedding photographer, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I love when old connections lead to new friends and amazing wedding opportunities!

Ryan and Briana went to the same high school but didn’t start dating until a little over a year ago, when he called her and offered to help her with an errand she was about to do. It all just took off from there— I love the concept of distant friends who end up falling in love :) We started their engagement session at a stellar bridge near their home then drove to their farm. Briana’s dad had purchased the property to sell and Briana fell in love with it when she saw it! When we drove up, I could see why. The house was SO beautiful, and the land surrounding it even more beautiful. I loved spending time walking around with their dogs, seeing the cows (AND BABY COWS! HOLY CUTEEE!), and exploring the woods and the creek on their property. If you know me, you know I REALLY want to live on a farm— I want to rescue chickens, goats, and a couple cows! Those dreams of mine made this session fun for me, but the sweet love Ryan and Briana share made it over the top awesome!

Enjoy my favorites from their engagement session! xoxo
