Tara & Robbie are engaged!

"So are you ever going to kiss me, or what," Tara asked Robbie as she leaned against the bar in New York City, where Robbie had moved from Ireland a few years before.

Though Tara was from Denver, she frequently visited NYC to show dogs in competitions. She would always go with her friends to this one bar across the street from the arena where Robbie would serve them drinks.

Finally, Robbie kissed Tara and they've been head over heels ever since.

I recently met with Tara and Robbie up at the gorgeous and historic Jekyll Club in Jekyll Isand, Georgia, where I will be shooting their destination wedding in September. They also brought their little girl, Abigail, a sweet dog that Tara rescued. For part 2 of their session, we went out to the beach to get some shots with Abigail, and before I knew it, it turned into a "trash the dog" session when Robbie picked up his girls and carried them into the ocean.


Tara and Robbie will soon dance their first dance here on this lawn in front of the Crane Cottage where their reception will be held.

Above is the Faith Chapel where Tara and Robbie's ceremony will be held. This chapel is one of 5 in the country that showcases a Tiffany stained glass window.

A girl can't help but L-O-V-E Tara's glittery 5 karat ring!

I am speechless! And that's a big deal for me! I can't even pick a fave here! Insanely great! The one in the water.... my jaw dropped! I am so thankful that your are so willing to share your gift with people! You really inspire me to get out there and try new things and strive to get better with my photography. Once again that's saying something being that I'm pregnant and don't feel like doing ANYTHING!!!

Oh, man, the one of all their wet feet is AMAZING. :) Seriously - if that were a pic of Stan and I with our dog, I would blow it up huge and put it on our mantle. I love it!
