{Engagement | Coty & Braden}

Meet Coty + Braden.


They are a super amazing couple-with tons of personality, good looks, and will make you laugh!


Let’s start off with some goofy pictures!

Coty contacted me after seeing my work thru a mutual friend-and planning their engagement shoot was so fun! We sat at Starbucks for 2 hours and oohhed and aahed over pictures she loved from Pinterest, and talked about all the upcoming wedding details-and found a few fun ideas she was really excited about.

I was so excited to photograph them, as I could tell Coty wanted me to be as creative as I could to make their session spectacular ..and that is like handing a photographer their camera on a silver platter!

We had fun with Xmas lights-fall leaves-brick streets-laying on the street with a quilt-silhouettes in an abandoned building-lots of tickling and laughing-and overall sappiness! They were an AWESOME couple-and I would gladdly photograph them again!


May God bless your marriage together-and give you many happy years as husband and wife. Thank-you for allowing me the privilege of capturing the love you share!


P.S. Leave Coty & Braden a super sweet comment-and if they get 15 comments I will send them a special gift from their session ❤ So share the love!






^That was one of the very first photos I took at our session Saturday-and how perfectly adorable are they?? I could tell from the very beginning that I was really going to love this couple!



We encountered some really nasty sticker burrs after this photo set…but I still think it was worth it!



I love pulling in props during a session-it gives the couple something to do and keeps it feeling not awkward  Though I think Braden might have thought I was a little crazy when I handed him a Vintage Polaroid camera….but man I love what fun they had with it!






I just love silhouettes …there is something so romantic about them to me! Coty really wanted a great silhouette photo…and I knew this building

would give the perfect spot to create one.


Funny story-I had them laughing & laughing down on the quilt (in the middle of the road-no cars coming though!) and one car pulled up-the people inside thought they were hurt or something! We jumped up as soon as we saw them pull up-I think we scared them pretty bad!


and they lived happily ever after! The End 🙂
