Stephanie & Josh Engaged

I love when couples are up for anything. Sheer long dresses with heels in the woods at Burr Oak Woods in Blue Springs, Missouri? Yes please. Stephanie didn’t complain a bit and was hiking and climbing in that dress like it was nothing. They laid on the ground on blankets, danced in fields in their […]
