The leaves were so beautiful this year up the canyon, and I’m so glad I got to capture them during Hillary & Daniel’s engagement session. This sweet couple is so in love, and their happiness and giggles made my job so easy. I can’t wait for their upcoming winter wedding.
I’m so grateful that I was given the opportunity to document this amazing couple’s love for one another as they prepared for their Salt Lake wedding. For some couples, sharing a good laugh just comes so easily, and my favorite images are the ones of Michelle cracking up over some secret little comment that Jordan whispered to her while we were shooting. Their wedding images will be coming soon, but here are some of my favorites to get started with. Many thanks to Michelle for sharing her sweet engagement story below:
“Jordan and I met on Valentine’s Day at a baptism for a member of the Young Single Adult Ward back home in Texas. Shortly after, he asked me out on our first date. We had an amazing time and from then on were together pretty much every day after. We would talk, laugh, dance at the park, go hiking, or go out and just enjoy being together. We learned that we were going to be attending the same university in Idaho, among other coincidences between us. Jordan was so sweet, he took me to the Franklin Mountains in El Paso and we shared our first kiss at the very top! On March 20th, he asked me to go on a picnic at a park near my house. The day was perfect and after eating and talking for a while, he turned to me and asked where I saw us in the future. After giving him my response, I asked him the same question, to which his answer was putting a ring on my finger and asking me to marry him. Of course I said yes! Later, he told me that he knew it was right, so why wait. It was the biggest and best surprise of my life! We have fallen more deeply in love each day.”
Oh how I love love love this bride and groom! Every session from start to finish was such a great experience with them. It won’t take you long to see from their pictures why I feel this way. Both Amorette & Derrick are full of personality… the overflowing, over the top, to the brim kind, and SO much fun to be around! This was definitely one of my favorite weddings of the summer!
