When these two met up with me for delicious donuts for their initial consultation and we got to know each other, I pitched the idea of their engagement session being at one of their favorite places on earth: the dog park at the beach. It's a place that they frequent often, and by the looks of it, Cooper (the pooch) sure knows his way around that beach! Sessions like these are definitely my favorite, because it is an opportunity to literally freeze time on some of the memories that they will definitely look back on later in life and remember with fondness. Before we were even halfway through, Kyle was saying how it was way more fun than he had thought it would be, and we laughed our way through an incredible sunset. A shoutout to Kimbo's MOH, Whitney, who played the roll of my assistant, and brother, who played with Cooper while I took pictures of his parents. :) I can't wait for their wedding in October!Read More
I loved Kristina from the moment I met her - it was the way that she swindled a restaurant into serving her a mimosa when they supposedly didn't serve alcohol. Or, maybe it was the way that she was sweet to everyone and basically everything she said was hilarious. Maybe I can't pinpoint the exact reason I loved Kristina from the beginning, but I distinctly remember telling my boyfriend later "Chris is an idiot. Why hasn't he proposed to her, yet? She's AWESOME."
Well, Chris wised up and dropped down on one knee at the tail end of last year! When she mentioned taking the engagement photos at the state fair, I thought to myself "how so very perfect for them!" because in my head, this is a couple who is always laughing and having fun - and that, is exactly how I wanted to capture their engagement: as a joyous occasion. We spent the afternoon darting in and out of rides, indulging on ice cream and corn, and playing like big 'ol children. The result are these FABULOUS lifestyle engagement photos at the Florida State Fair.Read More
