I had always known of MaKayla from high school, but more recently got to know her better through some mutual friends. I was thrilled when I heard of MaKayla’s engagement and even more excited when she asked me to photograph this special time in their lives! It was evident, right off the bat, that Jon + MaKayla were a good match. Jon was a gentleman and both were so cool, calm, and collected at their engagement shoot. I loved watching them interact with one another, and was amazed by how well they not only received direction, but also how they naturally posed themselves without any work on my part. The weather was perfect, minus a short rain cloud passing over, but Jon and MaKayla were so chill about it, it didn’t seem to phase them at all. We chatted about how they met and their plans for the wedding, and before we knew it the sun came back out and we jumped right back into things. MaKayla has the sweetest, most warm smile, and it was obvious that each smile in every photo was genuine. Jon and MaKayla will be getting married this August in Utah. Best wishes to you both, you two have kind souls and were SO fun to photograph.
