Taylor and Dustin are such a sweet couple! I have been looking forward to their engagement session for awhile now. They came and met with me to talk about the details of their wedding last winter, so we have been planning their session for some time now! These two have a strong bond over a […]

Meg and Michael are such a sweet couple! I really had fun getting to know them and cruising around the lake photographing their engagement photos!

We tried for a Fall engagement session for Rob and Amanda but instead it ended up being about 80 degrees. Regardless, it was so much fun working with them and capturing their love! Their sweet puppy Zeus joined in and totally stole the show! I had first met Rob in a networking group when he […]

Wandering around the big city with Jenny and Nick was so much fun! They are both very adventurous souls who met at a rock climbing gym in the city–so it was perfect for their engagement session to include some adventure! It automatically felt like we were longtime friends as Jenny and Nick both have down […]

Ever since I met Shea and Ben I knew they were going to be such a sweet couple to photograph. They did not disappoint when I met them again for their engagement session. Shea was very nervous at first for photos, but being in Ben’s arms helped to relax her into the awkwardness of being […]
