It was a blistering summer afternoon for Michelle and Kevin’s engagement photos, so an hour in, when the sky threatened rain and gave us those big, beautiful, blue clouds, everyone was thankful for the shade and cool. This engagement session was particularly exciting because it was our first time getting to meet Michelle and Kevin. Their little boy got sick on our meeting day a few months back, and living hours away we hadn’t had a chance to connect since. It was wonderful getting to know them both, and so fun shooting in a brand new location.
Michelle is sweet, with a beautiful, natural smile you can tell she wears often; Kevin is relaxed and attentive, impressing everyone when he reminded us of props we almost forgot to use. On the day of the shoot they were both up for anything – climbing in four feet of grassy field in heels? Sure. Hiking up to the edge of a former waterfall? Sure. They certainly have adventure in their bones (which of course is a quality Ben and I love!) Michelle and Kevin still have a little under a year until their big day – plenty of time to enjoy the planning and anticipation. We are looking forward to seeing all their ideas come together!
