Kayla + Chris. A Fall Engagement Session.

Ok, completely unrelated to this post . . . it's snowing right now! I love living in North Carolina. It was still in the seventies in mid-November, our leaves changed and looked amazing, and now it's snowing! I think we get the best of everything :) This is extra fun because our puppy, Luke, has never seen snow. He's so confused! It's adorable watching him look out the window while I work.

Now, on to Kayla and Chris' engagement session... They are getting married in Ohio next year but are both living in NC right now so I had the pleasure of shooting their engagement pictures!

Aren't they cute?

I hardly ever use a wide angle lens while shooting portrait sessions, but it just seemed right for this situation.

This is the "you're getting married!" face. Chris is extremely excited to marry his lady :)

After we played downtown, we stopped at a park to find some fall leaves. Kayla originally wanted to get married in the fall but the dates didn't line up, so we made sure to get lots of nice fall color in the photos!

We had to break up the serious, romantic shots with a leaf fight. Kayla got a free shot at Chris . . .
