Spring engagement sessions in Bentonville and War Eagle

Leave a comment

This past Saturday was a busy day with both a morning and afternoon engagement session. In the morning I met up with Leslie and Drew at the Bentonville square. We did some pictures around the square and then headed over to Bogle Park to finish up. They will be getting married October 16 in Rogers. And hats off to Drew for showing up to a morning portrait session after spending most of the night at work and still giving a good smile 🙂

Bogle Park - the grass was just barely dry enough to make this work!

It may be a little cheesy, but when I saw this cute mural on the side of the Ghiradeli Chocolate office, the first thing I though of was using it for an engagemnt portrait.

Ed and I had some great burgers at the Station Cafe on the Bentonville square and then headed out to War Eagle to meet up with Jennifer and Justin. It was a beautiful day to be at War Eagle, and apparently a whole bunch of other people felt the same way because it was really busy out there. We just had to be mindful of the background and wait for people to clear out before taking the shot. Add to that the occasional gusts of wind that were playing havoc with the reflector and Jennifer’s hair, and patience was definatley the word for shooting at War Eagle!

Nothing says "spring" like a flowering tree and this one made an ideal setting with the little rock wall.

War Eagle has huge open fields that are only used twice a year for craft fairs. At the edge of one we found this nice tree-lined isle that was people-free.

A big “thank you” to both couples who have been patiently waiting on this blog post while I was away at a conference in Branson!
