Jared + McKenzie were an absolute blast, full of laughs and open to anything no matter how goofy I can be. McKenzie was the first bride of mine to ask for a bouquet for their engagement session, and ya’ll… this needs to be a thing for all of my sessions!!

One of my favorite parts about engagement sessions is when the couples bring personal props that mean something special to the two of them. For this session, Mitch brought along a quilt his grandma made, which is the same exact on he used when he proposed to Debbie! I love my couples! <3
