There are times in life where the stars just seem to align, and our engagement shoot with Kayla Coleman was certainly one of those. Within days of our engagement, Kayla happened to be in town from Durham, North Carolina and we jumped at the chance to work with her. Her talent has long been a favorite of mine, and I knew she would be able to capture the magic we were still feeling from our whirlwind vacation.
We scrambled to get some ideas (and outfits) together, and decided to shoot our photos in our most natural settings – around the house, on our bikes, and at the beach. We were drinking beers on the beach when Jim proposed, so we wanted to include a nod to that moment by mimicking the scene (minus the Key West backdrop...and the tears). We are thrilled to have these photos to remember this time in our lives, and can't thank Kayla enough for her hard work and keen eye. She is truly amazing! You can check out her work here and visit her on Facebook for more.
Another special thank you to Tracy, the fabulous stylist from Anthropologie / Crocker Park, for making my last-minute shopping a breeze!
