al and jen : omaha engagement photography

Oh, my god. Dude. Seriously. I was laughing the ENTIRE time we were doing this engagement session, because Jen cannot help but crack up every time she looks at Al. And that look? It's sooooo full of love.

Case in point:

Sigh. So sweet!

We took these pictures because Al's last name (and soon Jen's last name) is Monaco. Yes, he's somehow related to the grocer that used to be here!

It was tough for them to stand this far apart from each other for the two minutes it took to take this picture. :)


Ahhhh, that's better. The loving look...


...and two seconds later, the laughing. Al just makes her THAT happy.



Then we had some fun with a broken chair we found in a courtyard.

Then we headed deep into the jungles of Africa for the next series.

Okay, not really. It kind of looks like it just a little bit, though.

I only made them do this three or four or twelve times.

Some more giggling. I swear, Al just had to LOOK at her and she'd start. It was the sweetest thing!


When we walked by this, I kind of casually pushed down on the counter to see how strong it was...not casually enough, though, because Jen looked at me and immediately said, "You're going to want me to go up there, aren't you?" Yes, please!

And what session would be complete without a little sun flare? (Okay, maybe a lot of sun flare.)

One final cuddle in the grass later, we were done.

And just wait for the pictures from their wedding in June. We have BIG plans for the day-after/trash the dress session. BIG PLANS, I tell you! It's going to be amazing!
