An Engagement Session Without "The Ring"

My step dad is one of the greatest men I know, and he is not marrying my mom. Confused yet?

My step dad married my mom when I was 2 or 3. He took on and raised four kids and him and my mom had two of their own, one of which passed away. My step dad and mom got a divorce when I was 18, but I still consider him my dad. He will always be my dad.

His Fiance, Laura is one of the sweetest people I know and is fantastic with  makeup (she did mine at my wedding). 

My dad proposed last Christmas and of course she said yes! BUT, she has always had a ring in mind of what she wanted and my dad was not about to create that himself. He proposed with a ring in a special wooden box that he made and they are getting the ring made now.

Usually with engagement photos, there is an emphasis on the ring. This time it wasn't.

If you could tell, my dad is so giddy!! He seriously wouldn't get his hands off her. It was the sweetest thing and I wasn't complaining! I got so many great shots, but here are some of my favorites.
