Alaina & Brandon | Engagement

This shoot was very dear to me. Alaina is one of my closest friends and really sparked my interest in photography. We were college roommates - her a photography major, and me in web design. I was always so intrigued by her photo adventures and I would always hang out with her and Becca (our other amazing roomie) in the darkroom. It finally hit me one day - I need to be a photographer. It was an instant love.

I had always enjoyed taking photos as a kid. I would carry around a disposable film camera and take pictures of things that were special to me. At the time, it was mostly of my cat, Toby or my bedroom, and all of my toys. I never really thought that photography would be a career path. Without Alaina & Becca, I may not have tapped into this world that I care so deeply for.

Alright, alright - enough with the sappiness...This engagement session was so much fun! Alaina came prepared with tons of inspiration and ideas. The balloons were my favorite - soooo cute! Although Brandon (like most men) hate having their photo taken, he was a great sport. This couple is so perfect. I cannot wait to be a bridesmaid in their wedding!

We captured these images at the most ideal fall location, Settlers Cabin Park. I will definitely be shooting more sessions there this fall!

As always - thank you for taking a look at this post. You can follow me on instagram or facebook for daily updates.
