Baxter Gardens Engagement I learned something about Lindsay and Kendrick at their engagement session that I love. They are both hilarious. The entire session at Baxter Gardens, they had each other laughing, had me laughing, and it felt more like I was hanging out with friends than taking engagement photos. Typically, I do a combination […]
