We all met at summer camp together a few years ago, as camp staff. I knew Kevin first, and quickly became intrigued by his adept understanding of everything outdoors. He wore moccasins & sandals that he made himself, knew pretty much everything about the outdoors (in my opinion), would hunt for snapping turtles, built a teepee that he decided to live in, etc., etc. Paola is the perfect match for him. Her sweet personality and adventurous spirit pairs really well with who Kevin is! Together, they make a really fun + inspiring team.
We woke up at the crack of dawn to photograph their engagement photos, at the same summer camp where we all worked together. Kevin still had his teepee up so we took a canoe ride across the lake to capture pieces of their story in a place that means a lot to them. There was a lot of laughter, sweetness, and adventure that will forever live in my mind as one of the sweetest engagements I’ve ever photographed.
I have far too many favorites from this session, so enjoy!
Congratulations Kevin + Paola! Thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your adventure together! 🙂
