Kendra and Michael's Engagement Session

Welcome to Kendra and Michael's Engagement session Grace Valley Farm in Shelbyville, TN by Collins and Collins Photography/Middle TN Wedding Photographers of Columbia, TN.

How did you two meet? Tell us a little about your love story?

I’m sure this is a common story, but we met at work! We noticed each other in passing here and there, making little comments and small talk, until we started a little flirting. Michael was walking to the ticket booth one day while I was working the cashier station. As he walked by, he winked at me, and it totally caught me off guard! A few minutes later, he was working on a register behind me, and I joked that I was that one who broke it, to which he replied that it was okay since I was his favorite! And the story starts off from there…

What is a good weekend for the two of you? 

Kendra - We are generally boring people with a little bit of hype and it’s wonderful. Starting the mornings with a cup of coffee (milk or orange juice for him..), and then going out to explore some place new either hiking, shopping, sightseeing, with a lazy day to follow!

Michael - Relaxing with her and either going hiking or even just lazing about the house! Obviously lots of good food always has to be involved…

What are your favorite quotes? 

Kendra - “You are enough just as you are” - Meghan Markle

Michael - “People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day” - A. A. Milne

How would your fiancé describe you? 

Kendra - I have heard him say that I’m caring, goofy, loving and a good cook!

Michael - I would guess she would describe me as patient, loving, and kind.

How do you like to spend your days together? 

Kendra - Going out to detox outside and get away from the normal is always great, and we try to do it when we can! But having a lazy day together is always a favorite of mine watching shows and cooking something new! It’s very rewarding to get him to eat something new, and for him to enjoy it!! He’s very picky..

Michael - I love it when we go out on adventures. Whether that be to a new outdoor area to explore or just simply running errands together. Also laying on the couch playing games or watching tv makes for a wonderful day.

Do you have Bible verses that speak deeply to you and if so, what are they? 

Kendra - “The Lord will keep you from all harm- He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121:7-8

Michael - "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

What are some of the quirky, sweet things you love about your fiancé?

Kendra - Yes! My favorite thing that he does are just random things! If I’m having a bad day, he always tries to cheer me up by doing something subtle and random. It could be him randomly bursting into song, weird dances, picking on me until I laugh, pulling his hat over his face until I notice in a drive thru. I love the random!

Michael - Oh geez, my number one would have to be that she makes sound effects with everything she does. Opening the car door? Sound effect. Hopping up on the counter to sit? Sound effect. Only real downside to it is now I do and people stare at me weird…

What was your Engagement session like for you? Was it what you expected??

Kendra - Amazing!! We had such a great time! I was worried we would be awkward, not photo well, or just be clueless on what we were doing. You guys made it so easy, fun and made us comfortable! Even though it was very cold out!

Michael - I was somewhat nervous coming into it honestly. Didn’t exactly know how it would go and I’m not the most photogenic but y’all made us have such a great time!
