From the Photographer:
"I love our city and all the stunning parks and mountains that surround it! But sometimes I feel like there are so many beautiful locations that we never get to explore and shoot in! So when Traci mentioned that they wanted their engagement session at Table Rock State Park because it represented a location that Traci and Shane both loved and enjoyed together we couldn't wait to explore and find the perfect spots to showcase their love and the scenic mountain views of one of their favorite parks. We started shooting a short distance into one of Table Rock's picturesque hiking trails that overlooks one of the many beautiful waterfalls at Table Rock. We even managed to get the waterfall to ourselves for their photos ... talk about perfect timing!! The weather for Traci and Shane's session called for sunny skies and wind and everyone loves the sunshine but not everyone has the same happy feelings about wind! But Traci picked out a perfect long dress for the occasion and although the wind kept wanting to change directions on us it made for some incredible photos blowing her dress! After we documented around the trails we made our way to one of the lakes that overlooks Pinnacle Mountain at Table Rock for some seriously gorgeous light as the sun set behind the mountains. The combination of the overgrown fields, stunning view and soft beautiful lighting at sunset definitely makes my list of favorite locations! As the sun went down we ended our time together on one of the docks overlooking the lake and even though I was sad to see our time end after getting to know these two over our two hours together it makes me even more excited for their wedding!"
