These sweethearts met for the first time in JUNIOR HIGH at a track meet! I wonder what 8th grade Elliot would have said if we told him at that time that he’d be planning a surprise proposal (in color coordinated outfits) in their future? All I know is that it is so evident this love story is built upon a beautiful friendship and my heart just bursts thinking about the way theirs has been in the making for so long!
Lindsey & Jarin are the type of couple that make being in love look natural and effortless. Their interactions are so sweet and genuine and it was really a treat to get to capture some of those moments for them. Jarin is in the Army and was out of the state just up until their wedding in May, and left again soon after. He and Lindsey squeezed this session in during his brief visit home last week and I’m SO glad they did!
Are you a fan of ABC’s The Bachelor/Bachelorette? If so, you’ve seen your fair share of stunning and elaborate proposals. When I met Devin and Karmen at Mountainside Lavender in Hillsboro, Oregon, I hadn’t yet heard how they got engaged. I just knew they were two incredibly down-to-earth and deeply in love humans. Whether you’re a part of Bachelor Nation or not, you are NOT going to want to miss this engagement story...
Timing, patience, and perseverance. After hearing Alicia and Mike's beautiful love story, those are the words I would use to characterize their journey. Ironically, those are also the words I would use to describe our adventurous afternoon in the Pacific Northwest wilderness as we set out to capture the perfect engagement photos!
