kasey + nick

I have taken a bit of time off in July for vacation and a little R&R, so I was really ready to get back to work last night. Kasey and Nick are getting married – they just aren’t sure exactly when. They are being very smart and letting Kasey complete her education before the wedding. But since they have never had pictures made together, Kasey and Nick decided to do an engagement session now. They were the perfect couple for my first session back! I loved their clothing choices – thanks to Kasey’s mom. The colors were perfect for an outdoor summer session. Kasey’s sundress was adorable and she was a real trooper even when I had her sitting on pine cones, walking through tall weeds, and balancing on railroad tracks. Nick has the most amazing smile – and it’s so easy to get him to show it. The closer we would pose Kasey to him, the bigger the smile! He didn’t even complain when we asked him to kiss her . . . imagine that.

Kasey wanted to use some locations out in the country for their portrait session, so Karen and I had the opportunity to get to know them on the trip out and back. We both fell in love with Nick and Kasey. They are a delightful couple and loads of fun. We were having such a good time, we stayed until the light was totally gone. I like this particular area because we can get several different locations within a couple of minutes of each other. Variety is the spice of life, after all. Or at least it is with portrait locations!


I have an unwritten rule that I show no more than 10 images in the blog sneak preview. With this session, I had a hard time limiting myself to 10. I’ll be posting more on Facebook tonight or tomorrow, so check out my albums on my profile page.

What gorgeous photos! I cannot believe that my “baby” is all grown up. Elise absolutely captured all that encompasses the relationship of Nick and Kasey. Too many to choose from. Kasey knew what she was doing when she hired such a professional!

These are beautiful pictures. Elise, you are as good at photography as you were as my instructor in Dental Assisting at CCCC. Kasey & Nick look outstanding. Fabulous job, Elise!

These pictures are beautiful – just stunning! The photographer did a wonderful job. We just may have to have our family pictures taken by this photographer next time we’re in NC.

The pictures of Nick and Kasey are impeccable! I must say, Kasey, you couldn’t have picked a better photographer. She truly captured the relationship in these pictures. No words or captions needed!

I just love these pictures of Kasey & Nick. They are such a wonderful couple. I have known Kasey for a long time now and she is such a wonderful, sweet, caring person. She is always thinking of others and going out of her way to help anyone who needs it. I enjoy working with her and she is a very hard worker! I know that once she is done with her education she will be a wonderful teacher. Her beauty is not only on the outside but truly within her! I wish them the best of luck on their future!
