stormy meadows proposal

Kelsey & Mark — holy smokes, what a pleasure it is just to know them. We met through one of my lovely couples during a camping engagement trip last year (see here for a sweet post about that beautiful weekend); & boy oh boy are they are some of the kindest, most genuine souls out there!

We’d been watching the weather all week, for what looked like a storm filled evening on the day of the session. During the day of, we saw that there would be a 1-2 hour gap of maybe no storm, so we decided to go for it! Kelsey & Mark (and their pup Piper), & their best friends Lauren & Will, rolled in just in the nick of time. We ran all around the meadows, hung about their beauty truck, and ended the evening on top of a mountain at the highest point in the park. At this time, the storm clouds were surrounding the mountain. We could see rain falling in the distance, and it was indeed headed our way. Lauren started to play Kacey Musgraves in the background, & then Mark asked Kelsey to be his wife.

After much embracing (from all of us), and a heck of a yes(!), we made our way back down the mountain. Within seconds of driving the rain started pounding down. You two are such treasures, & it was an honor having the opportunity to both be there & preserve these moments for you. Love you both to the moon!
