Back in February I ran a little contest {my first ever!} and gave away an engagement session to one couple on Valentine’s Day.  Meet Kyle + Angie… my winners!  They submitted their love story & told me about how they got engaged.  I had quite a few amazing entries & it seemed the only fair way to pick a winner was to choose someone randomly & these are the lucky ducks whose name was drawn.  And it just so happened that I absolutely loved their story, too.  I mean they met at Target {really they had me hook, line & sinker right there} and then Kyle pulled off an amazingly romantic proposal while they were vacationing at Disneyland in front of Angie’s family & about a million strangers!

I had a blast with these two.  They were my first session after a few weeks off {I didn’t schedule anything the whole month of March just so I could get a break & gear up for this crazy summer!} and it was such a fun way to get my creative portrait-shooting juices flowing.  I had a few different things I wanted to try out on these guinea pigs & I feel pretty awesome about how it all turned out.  I’m also feeling pretty awesome about what great weather we had & what a gorgeous location we got to shoot at in Fort Steilacoom, which is becoming one of my favorite places to shoot.

So thanks Kyle & Angie for entering my first giveaway contest & for coming all the way out to Fort Steilacoom for this little shoot.  You guys were awesome & up for anything & I had a blast getting to know a bit more about you!  Here are a few of my favorites from our session.
