Kayla + Tyler // Engagement

Kayla + Tyler // Engagement

Tyler is not only my cousin, but is more of a brother - and to see him transform into the man he is with a soul that is so happy, makes me so proud. I had the great honor of getting to capture the moment he dropped to one knee and asked the woman he loved to marry him. Kayla is the sweetest girl I’ve ever met, and I think they are absolutely perfect for one another.

Bridget + Adam // Engagement

This engagement session was so precious. Bridget and Adam came to me last fall about wedding photography, and I was anxiously awaiting this engagement session. The weather decided to hold off on the rain and gave us warm weather. These two were troopers for hiking through Cherokee Park with me (Bridget in wedges!), but I had a blast and the photos just show how happy they are.

Carissa + Brent // Engagement

This particular engagement means so much to me because my little brother asked me to document him proposing to his beautiful and wonderful girlfriend.

I planned a weekend (that Brent set up) to visit both Brent and Carissa in Colorado. The plan for Saturday was to all go on a hike together when Brent had something "come up" - so Carissa and I just went by ourselves. I told her I wanted to take pictures so she should dress cute as my model.

Megan + Seth | Engagement

Megan + Seth | Engagement

One of the best parts of my job is getting to know people better in order to capture them correctly. I met Megan back in 2009 when we both began our Undergraduate studies at Millikin University in the Vocal Performance program. Growing alongside of her, I can only say good, if not excellent, things about her. Her kind and open-hearted spirit welcomes anyone to share in her joy for life. It’s amazing what beauty can set free.
