Emmy + Ian Cotton Field Engagement

I knew about Emmy before she got engaged without having actually met her.  You see, Emmy and Mr. Wonderful knew each other since their sales territories overlapped.  Both at different medical device companies, they often bumped into each other at hospitals.  Benjamin told me he knew this gal, Emmy, who was probably going to get engaged soon, a girl I would totally like.  And so in true sales fashion, he tried to sell my services to her – you know, that’s what he does.  And so, when the time came, Emmy’s planner, another friend of mine, reached out to me and together we all sat down to meet and I was hired.

Emmy wanted cotton fields and I knew the perfect place – off to Buckeye, in fields belonging to the parents of my best friend.  Depending on the season the fields often grows alfalfa, but fall through winter, Emmy’s choice – cotton!  The weather gave us some fun – soft wind, clouds, and every so often a nice peek of sunshine. I loved the variety we had that day!

Let’s start off with the first shot – Emmy holding a beautiful bouquet by Camelback Flowershop – where Ian gifted Emmy florals every month.  I know, aren’t they just the cutest?

Looking forward to your wedding!  Ian, I can’t wait to “document you well” even more! Ha!

Diana Elizabeth says the drive to Buckeye is far – 45 minutes to an hour, but it’s well worth the exclusivity and mountain views!  Remember if you want to shoot in fields, you must get farmer’s permission, be respectful of their crops and property!
