kailen + lukas :: engagement

kailenlukasblog1

I love when I meet a future bride and groom in a fun unique way. I met one of my 2012 couples [Jammie + Pat] while sitting with them at a reception of their friends wedding whom I was shooting and then a year later, I shot theirs. Of course there is the fair share of high school acuatences, friends of friends, but something just makes me soooo happy when I get a bridesmaid from a wedding I shot in the past. Kailen was the maid of honor at another 2012 couple’s June wedding I shot, Tori + Kyle. A very hot, but lovely day and I actually had the honor of getting to know Kailen through the whole process with Tori. You see … she’s one of those amazing friends who comes along to all those meetings and helps you plan your day. I met Kailen the first time I met Tori and the three of us kicked off a new friendship that I am soooo pumped about.

Lukas and Kailen met in college. The whole … he liked her but was way too shy so she eventually asked him out kind of a thing. Sorry Luke … but its true. Don’t worry, I feel as though most girls now-a-days are the ones asking guys out. What can we say … a girl knows what she wants. And Kailen knew she needed to ask him out on a date. So here they are super in love, and living in California! I was soooo excited when Kailen emailed me and said she was engaged and wanted me to be a part of their special day and this time go through the process with her wedding. The couple lives in California where they both work as radiation therapists in the same office, but they do work in different departments so they don’t see eachother all day long. Even though I’m pretty sure they are one of those couples that could work together everyday all day.

Let me just say, I’m pretty sure I had snot frozen to my face like Harry and Loyd on dumb and dumber but it was totally worth it. Being a lover of snow … I was of course craving to get a couple outside that was willing to freeze with me and just be in love and cuddle up. So funny, the wind would pick up and snow would seriously take your breath away. Love those shots.

Oh and the WHITE BIRCH TREE … where do I start. This is my favoritest-est-est tree ever. I found it while driving back to my friend Rhiannon’s house and we ended up taking some photos there of a bouquet she designed and I knew I had to come back to use some more of the tree’s goodness so this was the perfect time. Rhi laughs at me of how I found it but I swear I turned the corner and it was like singing to me and I’m pretty sure there was a sun beam shining directly down, maybe some angles singing … harp playing … that kind of thing. This couple is the ‘outdoorsy’ type too so it was right up their alley!

All snowflakes are authentic and non were removed.

Happy Tuesday!

I’m out of the office for the rest of the week, so enjoy starring at these two love birds and until next week!

Happy Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, HAPPY WEEKEND!

xoxo

    This is adorable! My hubby proposed on a day when the ground was covered with snow, so I might be a little biased but I think it is soooo romantic. Beautiful Leah!

    You're lucky I love you :)

    What I was saying before is that I think this is your best work yet. These images are all so incredible and just when I didn't think they could get better BOOM I see the ones with the birch tree in them. GOOD choice to go back to that spot! You're amazing and I am proud of you xoxo
