Mikayla + Caleb

Filed in: Engagements

Spring feels like it’s finally here, which means it’s time for some engagement sessions!

Saturday I met Caleb and Mikayla at the Oval on the CSU campus. I’m SO glad they made the drive all the way from Denver because the colors in the park were really popping! These two were just great.

As our session got underway the couple admitted to me that Caleb wasn’t too pumped about his upcoming time in front of the lens. Getting his photo taken wasn’t exactly his idea of a good time. But from my perspective on the other side of the camera, the more photos I took the more Caleb seemed to enjoy himself. As the session winded down Caleb admitted to me that while he had been unexcited (to say the least) about getting his photos taken on the couple’s big day, after the engagement session he was now looking forward to them. That’s music to my ears and pretty much what I live to hear πŸ™‚ As you can hopefully see below, this couple is very in love and it shines through in their photos.

I don’t think Mikayla knew I could see her face in this shot, but every time she even got close to Caleb, her face just lit up.

I love it when couples are willing to try anything! These two didn’t bat an eye when I looked at them and said, “Ok, now lay on the grass and squish your heads together!”

So cute!

Congratulations you two! Can’t wait for your August wedding!

    The really special thing I notice about these pictures is that they are SO natural! They just make me feel comfortable. Could be located in a magazine advertising some kind of natural product. Good job!!

    Really great pictures. These pro photographers sure know their stuff, and Kate Marie looks to be one of the best.
