This Fall engagement session with Erin and Luke at Stone Tower Winery was everything I could ask for. I’m already counting down the days until their wedding in 2021 at King Family. If their wedding is anything like my time with them this evening, it’ll be one for the books.

90+ degrees, mid-day, and Andrew wore a suit the whole time,… When I say my AE Brides and Grooms are the BEST, I mean it. Two whole hours flew by and we didn’t even go to ever location- that’s how amazing Market at Grelen is! The wedding venue has ENDELSS variety for photos. The blooms are some of my favorite!
