Derrick & Joanna

Filed under: engagement — Char @ 1:30 pm

Hey folks…..Derrick and Joanna are looking forward to this fall. Weddings plans are being made!

Joanna asked if I would take their engagement photos. I was more than happy…


Because the wedding is in the fall, Joanna wanted a shoot that has fall colors.

She did a great job with this.  The location she choose included a quaint church, an old barn, and an overgrown meadow.

The wedding colors…orange, yellow, and brown were brought in with the flowers and outfits.

Joanna warned me that Derrick doesn’t love having his pictures taken. He endured. Smile.

Joanna is….well, just as sweet as can be.


The motto for their wedding is “The best is yet to come.”

All the best to Derrick and Joanna as they continue planning their big day.

See their slide show here.



The sunlight worked with us perfectly!





  1. Love, love, love these pictures! Congrats, Joanna and Derrick!
