Sydney and James Fall Engagement // The Barn at Sleepy Hollow
So back in late September we kind of sort of tricked Sydney into modeling for a shoot for the new barn venue in Clarksville AR called The Barn at Sleepy Hollow. We really did need to take some beautiful photos for the barn but secretly we were all planning a way for me to be up front and center to take photos when James would get down on one knee and ask Sydney for forever. We helped Sydney pick out an outfit (dress from Riffraff) and had her hair and makeup done by the lovely Meagan Ford.
We started the shoot out in the barn with real modeled shots for the new barn venue and then went out to the woods nearby and started taking couples photos. During one of the shots I was setting up James slipped down onto one knee and started to ask Sydney and she could hardly believe it. She kept yelling 'is this real is this real?!!' Then when she realized everything we had done to put together such a beautiful set up for them she was really freaking out. After she started to put it all together both hers and James' mom came out from a hiding spot to hug them. Thanks to her best friend Gabrielle we were able to pull off the biggest surprise and it was SO amazing to see it all go down. It was super emotional and I was so nervous but so happy to take these beautiful memories for them.
