I’ve known Carli and Jared since high school – we ran in similar crowds from small towns and hit it off. Like many high school friendships, we have kept in contact over the years (thank you, Facebook!) and silently celebrated each other’s accomplishments!
These two knew each other in high school, but never really hung out, and went their separate ways for college. Luckily shortly after, they met up again and it sparked the sweetest romance. After four years of dating, they are finally ready to tie the knot! Jared proposed to Carli in the most adorable lookout tower that has been converted into an Airbnb – can you say CUTE! They had a weekend getaway in the snow planned and climbed clear up to the lookout tower to spend the evening. As soon as they got warm by the fire, he popped the question! She had no idea and that’s one of the best parts of the story!
When Carli reached out about me shooting her wedding a few months, my heart skipped a beat! She is my soul sister and it was apparent during her Facetime consult (thank you COVID) that we were going to get along so well! For their engagement session, Carli requested that we have a variety of different location styles, and that we chose some place bright and happy – just like them! She also wanted to go somewhere with a gorgeous mountain top view.
YA’LL – I think we nailed it!
This spot has been in the back of my mind for a while, I just needed some time to explore it. Thanks for being up for the adventure, lovebirds! You two had my tummy hurting from all of the giggles and fun we had – my creativity was flowing during this. It’s just what I needed!
Here are a few favorites from their session!
PS – this was the direct reaction from “who is the most ticklish here!” That giggle is a… WIN!
Then we headed out to my next, super top secret location on a mountain top…. not really its in the middle of town. But you would have never known!
Thank you cuties for the fun evening! I had a blast with you guys. Can’t hardly wait for your June 2021 wedding!
