renee & scottie {engaged | monroe, nc}

Renee & Scottie are getting married in less than 2 weeks!! We cannot wait to throw down with them at Morning Glory Farms!

We headed out there to shoot their engagement session this past fall which just made us even more giddy about shooting their wedding at this great site! Here is a peak into this super adorable couple…

After we left Morning Glory farms we saw this AMAZING cotton field. I almost wrecked the car trying to pull off the road fast enough to shoot in it!Renee’s eyes are SO gorgeous!

While you are enjoying this post we are out shooting Renee’s bridals (our favorite thing to shoot)! We cannot wait to share those after their wedding! Happy Tuesday friends, hope your day is just as amazing as you!
