Spending an evening with this couple was definitely my favorite engagement session to date! Even from their consultation I knew Katie & Travis were going to be gems to work with, but it wasn’t until we started shooting that I got to see how passionate and fun their love really is; they are simply smitten with each other.
Katie works and is going through nursing school, so she freely handed over the planning and styling of their engagement shoot to me – score! I presented my ideas for a hot chocolate date in the back of Travis’s pickup truck and they loved it! We started shooting at Silver Lake, hoping to catch some of the season’s fall colors, then moved down the canyon in search of a spot to park the truck, ending at a rich rock formation bathed in airy light. I’ve been waiting and hoping for one of my couples to involve their dog in our shoot, so I was literally squealing with delight when they wanted to include their gorgeous pup, Aurora. I’m so puppy hungry…
On the way down the canyon Travis and I talked while Katie took a phone call, and I asked him how he knew she was the one. His response: “I dated other girls, I’ve had serious relationships before, but with Katie everything was different right from the start; I went from dating girls to dating a woman.” Katie, this one’s a keeper!
It’s going to be a LONG wait for their sure to be gorgeous wedding next June!
