Eric and Brittney met through mutual friends back in November 2017. What was interesting is that the two different sets of friends were trying to fix them up with one another unbeknownst to either parties. I’d say that folks just knew they were meant to be, and so did they! Eric and Brittney knew there was something truly special about one another from the very start. He said he knew Brittney was the one when they were out together feeding the cattle one evening. “I don’t know how I knew, I just knew,” Eric said. He continued, “there wasn’t anything special happening. We were just taking care of the animals together, and I looked over at her, and thought this is the woman I want to grow old with.” Of course they were smiling from ear to ear as they recounted their story of how they met and how they fell in love to me as we dined together. There’s crazy chemistry between these two lovebirds! Eric proposed one night after their 6 month anniversary on a farm surrounded by twinkle lights and candles as music played softly in the background. Little did Brittney know that their family was secretly waiting to surprise the couple after Eric popped the question. “I prayed like I’ve never prayed before that this beautiful woman would say she’d marry me,” he said. As Brittney exclaimed “YES” the two were surrounded by their loved ones and they spent the rest of the evening celebrating their perfect engagement!
I knew the farm was going to be the spot for their shoot from the beginning! These two love to be surrounded by nature and the rustic vibes that make up a farm. Their engagement shoot couldn’t have been sweeter! The couple enjoyed a picnic while cozied up together underneath Brittney’s grandmothers quilts. It was a bit chilly that afternoon, but you’d never know it. Brittney and Eric spent their their time laughing and simply loving on one another. It was engagement session heaven, and I was in it! The future Mr. and Mrs. Cooper came dressed styled to perfection. Brittney wore two gorgeous dresses and carried a bouquet made of babies breath while Eric sported a set of boots and a cowboy hat. The bride to be also wore the most stunning pieces of jewelry from the store where she works: Carter’s Jewelry of Petal. Theirs is definitely an engagement sesh I will always remember!
Eric and Brittney, I am sooooooo ready for wedding day with you guys!! Thank you for choosing me to be part of your journey to becoming husband and wife. I have loved every minute of working with and getting to know you two! I have SO many favorites from your shoot, and I’m excited for you to see just a few of them here! Big hugs, Shea
