a cozy {and special} e-session.

today’s engagement session is going up as one of my favorites until the end of time. before you ask me why, i’ll have to tell you that i might be a little biased. however, i think the adorable images will speak for themselves. you see, this gorgeous pair, captured by gunnar cook photography, is very special to me.

growing up with a brood of wonderful brothers, i’ve always thought of my cousin danielle as the sister i never had. living just one block from each other in our small hometown, she’s always been there for me. we’ve had fits of giggles until the tears streamed down our faces and cried until there was nothing left to do but laugh. even making the move from little old Raymond to the big city together, she’s been the the sort of best friend that only god brings to you. the sort of friend i’m lucky enough to call family. knowing that danielle has found the person she is going to spend the rest of her life with leaves me overflowing with happiness.

zach and danielle are high school sweethearts who have grown up and grown closer together as the years have gone by. he’s a lovable goofball and she’s a ray of sunshine. spend a couple of minutes with them and you’ll know what i mean. their smiles are contagious and their love is undeniable. so when it came time to plan their engagement pictures, i knew it wouldn’t be hard to see and yet gunnar went above and beyond, as always. gorgeous leaves, pumpkin carving, and a cozy bonfire, their images are full of fall fun and drenched in love, just like the two of them. try to look at them and not smile. i dare you.

we can’t wait for their wedding next june and we’re so excited to {officially and finally} call zach one of our own. until then, enjoy and soak up every bit of bliss you’ll see in these images. sending so much love to you, danielle and zach…
