Brandy and Matt have known each other since their elementary days – they grew up in the same small town, went to the same schools, and ran in the same circle of friends. They became a couple in 8th grade, and what was a middle school crush then, quickly turned into high school sweethearts. He was handsome football player that every girl would end up having a crush on at some point, and she was the beautiful girl that was always friendly to everyone she talked to. They were that couple that was meant to be, who everyone in our high school, at least that I knew, was rooting for.

When Lauren and I met up for coffee to chat about her and Joe’s engagement session, she told me about their story, what brought them to Montana, and what they enjoyed doing together. They loved hiking, camping, backpacking, fishing, and pretty much everything outdoors. They also had a puppy-dog! The feel she wanted in her photos: big mountains, little couple. Location: Glacier National Park. 

In other words, this engagement session would be amazing.

When Kaylie contacted me about doing her and Brayden’s engagement photos, we decided that it’d be fun to meet up in Island Park, Idaho while they were on a trip to Yellowstone National Park together. I got REALLY excited when they also said they’d be willing to get up before the sun came up and catch that gorgeous morning light!

5 Tips for Engagement Photos You’ll Love

Now that the 2016 Shoot & Share Photo Contest has come to a close, I hope that all of you have been able to get back into your normal routines – those ones that don’t involve questioning the existence of the elusive hedgehog and wondering how to choose between the groom with the facial hair and man-bun, or the other groom with the facial hair and man-bun. Don’t even get me started on the “empty refrigerator” routine

What I Learned from the Shoot & Share Photo Contest

I was hanging out at my parent’s house one afternoon, when Morgan came walking in with a sparkle in his eye and a grin on his face that could only mean one thing – he finally bought it. He handed the box to me and told me to take a look, and while I was “oooh”ing and “ahhh”ing over the prettly little number, he said, “So, you wanna be there to photograph when I ask her?”

“It was pretty casual and thoughtless at first, just an introduction, a little flirting and conversation that eventually led us to gain respect and an interest to learn more about each other. By the end of the night, it occurred to me that I may have found the girl I’d always dreamed of and wondered even existed…”
