Kaitlyn & Cameron : Engagement

We met Kaitlyn & Cameron (and their precious son Owen) at Hannah & Eric’s frigid 2012 wedding. Even though it was a cold, wet, windy day, this couple kept their party hats on for their friends. They were encouraging and helpful and happy all day long, and did whatever they could to make sure their friends had an amazing wedding. So when Cameron cornered us after the ceremony and showed us the picture of the ring he’d picked out for Kaitlyn, we started crossing all our fingers & toes. Sure enough, as soon as the ring was on the finger, we started helping them plan their sure-to-be-incredible September wedding!

This engagement session, photographed around downtown Fort Worth, is going in my metaphorical jar of favorites. Although we shoot downtown Fort Worth all the time, we challenged ourselves to use almost ALL new locations during this session, and I just lovelovelove what we ended up with. Cameron & Kaitlyn have such a comfortable relationship with one another… they know one another inside and out, the buttons to push, and the ways to make one another laugh. They were a joy to photograph, and I think this session really shows what a fantastic time we all had.

Since it’s our last Monday before wedding season, we decided to share an EXTRA long blog post. Aw, who am I kidding? The blog post is extra long because we couldn’t narrow it down any further. 😉 Enjoy!

Laughing pictures like this are proof that Mack and I are really hilarious in person. 🙂

I saw this funky-cool bike rack and squealed with delight… such an awesome little find!

We couldn’t see this waterfall feature from up the hill, but we could hear it. I’m so glad we went to investigate. Some of my favorite images, for sure!

Maybe this spot up underneath the Main Street bridge involved a little trespassing. And maybe I sang a certain Red Hot Chili Peppers song under my breath the whole time we were down there. Maybe.

And finally, with the sky and clouds changing colors every 15 seconds, we climbed a hill to finish our session…


That’s the sound you make when you don’t have words or air. UGH! Perfection!

Kaitlyn & Cameron, thank you for traipsing all over Fort Worth with us. Thank you for climbing fences and risking life & limb twisted ankles to fulfill our vision for your engagement pictures. Thank you for trusting us so much, and laughing so loudly. We cannot WAIT for your wedding!

    Chelsea and Mack – I cannot even begin to describe how absolutely over the moon happy I am with all of these! I’m so glad Cam cornered you and that I secured a business card from Mack during Hannah and Eric’s reception! I couldn’t imagine our wedding without you two being a part of the action and wouldn’t have trusted one of the most important days of our lives to anyone else!! I can’t thank you enough for working with us and for finally getting some good pictures of us!!

    The architecture and structures that you guys captured along with us was even better than I could have ever imagined. This shoot highlights the difference between someone who takes pictures, and an artist who uses a camera as their medium. You guys are great, and I can’t wait for the wedding!
