Engaged: Heather and Aaron

It was the sweetest of things. Aaron grabbed Heather and pulled her close — knowing full well, of course, that the camera was watching him. I think he was trying to show off. He had claimed her. Wooed her. Sent yellow roses. Put a ring on her finger. Made her happier than seemed possible. And now, he wanted to show it off. Watch out, world! Check out what I can do.

“Oh, honey! You missed!” Heather giggled. (But, let the record show: she glowed.)

“What?!” Aaron wasn’t teasing here. He had laid claim and she was just giggling. I think he was a little confused.

“That was my nose, not my lips!”

(Personally, I hope he figures out the difference before their June wedding. Just saying.)

When I showed up at Heather’s house before we started shooting, she had one box of shoes, one box of accessories, a pile of shirts, and three dresses…all waiting for my “expert” opinion and “executive” decision. I made something up and hoped it would be beautiful. When she pulled out three makeup bags of lipstick and asked me to choose a color, though, I almost dealt with an emotional meltdown. Lets just say that suddenly I felt like something less than an expert; the options were way overwhelming, even for the usually decisive me.

P.S. Instead of calling me bossy — like Troy and Jeremy both did — Aaron complied admirably; his wife-to-be, however, called me “adorably weird.” I choose to take this as a compliment.

  1. So, Jennifer….I've already been thinking about hiring you to come take my engagement/wedding photos (after that unknown man shows up and woos me…), but I think that black and white shot with their shadows on the wall may have sealed the deal. These are fabulous Jen!!!!

  2. Wow. Amazing.

    They radiate love. Beautiful.
