• Steve + Sam | Engaged

I was sentimental… until I met Sam! Sam is the sweetest! And she’s so creative! I loved her ideas for her engagement shoot and it turned out perfectly. Our first stop was at the restaurant where Steve and Sam first met. We didn’t shoot them sitting in the “exact” seats… but it was close!! Next, we shot some portraits under the tree where they shared their first kiss! Then we ended their shoot with a splash of color! Literally!! It was a blast. We left wishing that these two were getting married next month because we just loved them!

Not only is Sam super sweet and sentimental… she’s also gorgeous and has the most amazing smile!! Steve and Sam together are a power couple when it comes to modeling and I still don’t understand how I’m so blessed to work with such awesome couples!! Their love for one another is so evident in their interactions . It was a gorgeous day with beautiful light and I’m just so excited to share these images!! Ps. You also get to meet their sweet pup, Comma! How cute is that name?! Enjoy getting to know this super fun KJ Couple and get excited for their wedding next year! Woohoo!!!

Oh they are the cutest!!

And this is what Comma was doing while she waited for us to finish shooting!

So beautiful!

Obsessed with this tree!


That laugh!! love her laugh! 

The light was amazing!!!

Aren’t they the best!? Looking good Steve!! Killer smiles! 

So fun!!!!!

LOVE IT!!!!!!

xoxo, Katelyn
