Engagement | Travis & Amber

“I knew when I first met him; he would be my dork.”

Travis and Amber met online and had their first date in Hannibal, Missouri. At the time, she was a 911 dispatcher, and he was an art teacher. Amber recalled, “I knew when I first met him; he would be my dork.”

These two were absolutely adorable together, and their love for each other just beamed!

Now, one might wonder how they happened to come my way for their engagement session when I stated earlier that their first date was in Missouri. Well, Travis is from my hometown. We were actually in 4-H together growing up. I’m so happy for him that he found an amazing woman to spend his life with. It’s crazy to me though, and I still have to wrap my head around the fact, but we are both grown up and old enough to be doing “adult things” like having careers and getting married! Boy does time fly!

I couldn’t be happier for these two, and I wish them all the best. They were truly a fun (and surprising) couple. We had a great session… which took a turn for awesome when they pulled out pelican masks! As an art teacher, Travis wanted to do a few photos that were atypical and fun. It made my day!

They are planning a July 2018 wedding.
