Kayli + Evan

I don't know how to even start out this post if we're being totally honest. Kayli was one of my first friends when I moved to Arizona in the middle of 4th grade and we were twins on 5th grade twin day. I moved away from Arizona to Oklahoma when we were 12 years old and until 12 years later, we didn't see each other again. In 2015 my dad moved back to Arizona so of course I was eager to visit and see a place I had such fond memories of. 

I was looking back on her Instagram posts and the first time Evan appeared in one I commented "let me come and take cute pictures of y'all" and fast forward 5 months, they were engaged and I came to Arizona and took cute pictures of them. It was truly a DREAM.

We met up at 8:30 in the morning and got home at 11pm, didn't eat for 12 hours, and nearly died (okay maybe not nearly, but it was still scary) trying to get to Merry Go Round Rock. We got to see Horseshoe Bend (before the dreaded fence goes up), canyons & the most gorgeous view of the red rocks of Sedona. Aside from that day, it had been 2 years since Kayli had even seen each other aside from the time in December of 2015 and I had of course never met Evan before that morning and I could have spent so much more time with them. They get married at the base of the Superstition Mountains in November and I am SO FREAKING PUMPED about it. 

Jayln + Jeff

Jayln and I met several years ago when we both worked at MetroShoe Warehouse, but I think her and I only worked a handful of shifts together before she quit and I was back in the Norman location. I'm not entirely sure how we stayed in contact, but over the last year or so we've communicated a lot more frequently and bonded over our love of essential oils and dogs. When she started talking about Jeff it was pretty clear early on that they were going to end up together for the long run. I actually facebook messaged him about a year ago telling him to let me know when he was going to propose because I knew she wanted pictures of it! So fast forward to November, Jay had scheduled a mini session at a Christmas tree farm, so Jeff decided that was the best option to surprise her, since the pictures were her idea to begin with. Long story short, she was surprised and they're getting married in September. Here's a blog of some of my favorites of their engagement session!

Skye + Evan

I'll start this off by saying I 100% stalked Skye & Evan on Instagram and for sure messaged them on there asking them to model for me. They were two people I had seen a few times at The Patriarch and decided to be a weirdo and ask them to hangout and model. I could have sat and talked to them for hours and hours. Skye and Evan both have the sweetest spirits and make you feel known so easily (even when you had been friends for less than 2 hours). I noticed that I took a lot less pictures than I typically would because we kept stopping and talking throughout the whole thing, but don't worry, what I did get was gold, because they are amazing. Seriously, not only are they basically models, but they are the most genuine and wonderful people. Thanks for responding to my Instagram direct message, guys (:

Kelsey + Scotty

I met Kelsey + Scotty in the Fall of 2017 when I met them in Stillwater to take their engagement pictures. Their chilly February wedding complimented their love in the best way, surrounded by family & friends. Kelsey's Maid of Honor was a deployed a few months before the wedding, so she worked with their friends to record a speech and have it played after the Best Man and Matron of Honor speeches and there were not a lot of dry eyes in the room after that. I hope you're loving your Colorado life, Mr. and Mrs. Cayton!
