Amber + Jonas | An Okalona, MS Pre-Wedding Practice Session

Mississippi Engagement Session

I love a solitary road trip… and the only way it gets any better is when the solitary road trip includes a pre-wedding practice session with a sweet couple!

Saturday afternoon I enjoyed my 2.5 hour drive to Okalona, MS for Amber + Jonas’ pre wedding practice session. We met at the house where Jonas’ grandmother grew up. This is also the front porch Jonas brought Amber to when he proposed to her. On that day, when they arrived at the house the front porch was decorated. They sat on the swing and he asked her to spend forever with him. Little did she know their parents were waiting inside to celebrate the engagement with them!

I love family heritage and heirlooms, so I was super excited when Amber + Jonas wanted to have their pre-wedding practice session at this special location!

I got to the house a bit early and enjoyed sitting on the front porch, drinking ice cold water and getting to know this sweet couple better. I love building relationships with my couples! I believe this sweet time together will help me to serve them better on their wedding day.

We started their session on the front porch with so many memories. Next we moved to the shade of the trees in the yard with perfect dreamy light. We ended their session along the white fence surrounding the pasture. This session was truly a dream!

Amber + Jonas, I have prayed for you as I edited these images. As I prayed the word that keeps coming to my mind is JOY! The verse the Lord is giving me for you from Romans15:13 which says, “Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of Hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable JOY and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate hope.”
