Sometimes relationships sprout seemingly out of nowhere. But before you know it, love blossoms and grows into something supernatural and undeniably beautiful. A romance of great depth, a relationship exuding contagious joy, and two smiles to die for (don't mind my string of fragments): Alex & Kaylyn. Dave and I were so blessed to get to take their engagement photos. It's such an honor to get to invest into a soon-to-be marriage for a couple that will easily make the world a better place. You two love very, very well. You're leaving fingerprints of Love everywhere you go.
To set the scene for you, we went out to take their pictures on a Saturday afternoon post a few days of heavy rain and the weather was still pretty sketchy! It was super windy, and there were splotches of extremely bright light and pockets of shade covering the field where we went to shoot. I was starting to get sick, and my Minnetonkas were soaked and soggy within 5 minutes of the shoot (not a happy camper). And to top it all off, Alex & Kaylyn brought balloons as props, and guess what? Yeap, they somehow figured out how to unwind themselves from my backpack and escaped! Although slightly discouraged by our first attempt at fighting the elements, we managed to get some photos on Saturday and then some more early Sunday morning at the Santa Barbara Mission. [P.s. Thanks for being troopers, you two. I'm sure there's someone out there who would have yelled at me or beat me up for losing their balloons =p.]
We're so excited for your BIG DAY in May! We love you.

A little extra gift of encouragement for you two as your walk towards your big day:
Psalms 5:11-12 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield.
