Abby + Jared • Mountain Engagements

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to document Abby and Jared's engagements! Abby was actually in my home Stake growing up in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Our families had game nights all together! I have some cool memories with the Henrie family. 

Abby and Jared are a sweetheart couple. They both are on their last few semesters at BYU-I with Abby in Exercise Physiology and Jared in Neurobiology. I love how carefree Jared and Abby are. They could do be doing anything together and they would be enjoyed it. When I asked Jared to slow dance with Abby I asked what their song was and they told me Perfect by Ed Sheeran. This song seems totally them! And I loved seeing Jared open the car door for Abby the moment they arrived and as they left.

The day before Abby and Jared‘s engagement session we had 40+ mph winds! I'm so glad that it ended up being a beautiful day. We enjoyed some time up at Kelly Canyon and the grass was just barely turning green! Abby and Jared will be getting married at the Idaho Falls Temple. Jake and I were married at the Idaho Falls Temple as well so it holds a special place in my heart! Can’t wait to be a part of these two’s wedding in June!

Resa + Jim • A Romantic Picnic

On a beautiful afternoon I was able to get together with Jim and Resa. Jim was an exchange student from Berlin, Germany and was getting ready to head back home. Resa and Jim had the best idea to have a photoshoot done before he left. I was so stoked when they contacted me and mentioned they wanted to have a picnic during their session. I can't think of anything better than that! Activities for photos bring out the best of people and even help you relax and to be yourself during your session. 

Resa loves the water and camping, so this area was perfect! It was great watching Jim and Resa just have fun together. After the picnic we explored. Jim saw the swing set and immediately asked Resa to get on. The candids from the swings and the picnic are my favorites. Real moments are the best moments. Enjoy these two love birds!  

Kaylee + Nate • Idaho Engagements

I have dreamed for a location like this. One with variety and options. I'm obsessed with the mountain view, the lake and beach, and of course the sagebrush! I've grown to love sagebrush here in Idaho. This hidden gem is about the same distance from to Rexburg to Kelly's which makes it perfect for my clients! Not to mention the weather is usually better in this area than it is in Idaho Falls. 

Kaylee and Nate were so willing to test it out and can I say DREAMY! Nate and Kaylee spent quite a bit of time on the beach together. And in March Nate proposed to Kaylee on the beach of Texas! Idaho doesn't have beaches, but we fake it pretty good. Halfway through our session Kaylee pointed out this stunning field. Those romantic shots of Kaylee and Nate in the field are some of my favorites from the entire session!
