Photographer Amanda tells us Tray and James’ story:“Tray and James hail from opposite ends of the country. While she's a southern belle who loves the outdoors, warm weather and sweet tea, he's a city boy, raised in NJ who thrives in urban settings and fast paced life. They wanted to incorporate that contrast in their engagement session so we settled on a gorgeous garden setting for Tray's part and a city rooftop for James' part. The session was utter perfection!!”
