Engagement Favorites of 2016

I'm amazed that 2017 is just around the corner! I'm so excited for the new year but I had to reflect on this past year. 2016 was full of so many sweet and gorgeous couples. I was able to travel to different parts of Idaho, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado for these couples. Here's the best of the best engagements in 2016. 

I drove my little Chevy Sonic to this snowy session and ended up getting stuck as I was leaving! I felt horrible as both Darbi and Tanner pushed my car out. But I'd say it was worth it for this perfect snow fall.

Courtney and Ben made one of my dream sessions happen which included a greenhouse! And they still hold the title of the giddiest couple I've ever shot. Seriously, these two couldn't look at each other without laughing. Check out their wedding   HERE.

Jordan and Kendall hung out with me in downtown Rexburg in frigid temperatures. Their outfits were so sophisticated it made the session classy and elegant. And look at that genuine laughter!

Oh my gosh! This shot of Shayla and Austin was at the very end of their session. We were about to wrap things up when I saw this light. I told Shayla and Austin to stand right in front of it and they created this perfect shot. Talk about dreamy!

Carissa and Jacob were so trusting of my abilities. So when we climbed a mountain of loose dirt for one shot, they were all for it and over the moon for the results. View more of their engagement session   HERE.

I had so much fun with Sheala and Jesse in one of my favorite spots near Ririe. They were some of the best slow dancers and this fence made for beautiful framing!

The light barely coming in the grove of trees for Brandie and Chapman's session was the cherry on top. And tall pines are a must.
