When they sat near each other that first day of high school in rural Pennsylvania, I'm not sure they could have guessed their friendship would take them to the beaches of Hawaii. But that's just what happened when Dan joined the military and was stationed in the Aloha state. Despite the long distance that would soon separate them, he and Katlyn weren't ready to give up their relationship. What had started as a high school crush had grown into something much more. So they made it work. Katlyn spent her summers in Hawaii, Dan made trips back when he could, and they grew closer through all of the goodbyes. But there will be no more tearful goodbyes for these two! They're planning a fairytale wedding for mid-August and will be moving to beautiful Hawaii just two days later...together.
You may remember Katlyn & Dan from their snowy shoot earlier in the year. Because of the snow showers and cold, we were only able to have a 10-minute session. So we opted to finish the rest of their session this past week. I'm so glad we did! Katlyn & Dan look good in any season, but I especially loved every minute of this warm, sunny shoot. These two are not only stylish, trusting, and easygoing, they're also so clearly in love. Photographing them was as easy as pie. I can't wait for their wedding! And I must give a warm thanks to Katlyn's sister, Bekah. She came along, provided some bubbles, and made everyone feel a little more comfortable. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
And I'll end with some black and whites. I processed these with a little more sepia
than I normally do, but I like it for the more romantic feel of this session.
