Meet: Kara & Aaron

We are about to launch into a series over the next couple weeks of some of my favorite engagement shoots we’ve taken. Ever. And there’s no better way to kick off that series than with the absolutely adorable Kara & Aaron and their Big E themed engagement shoot. Honestly, between these two and the cotton candy… it just doesn’t get any sweeter than this! :)

Meet: Kara & Aaron

First of all, let’s just go ahead and process how absolutely beautiful these two are together. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Yea, I know!

Cotton candy, sweet & soul.

Love! This is a lil more flare than we’re used to, but I just loved the vibe of it!

Kara you are gorgeous, just gorgeous my friend. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen prettier eyes in my life!

And Aaron, you are pretty raaaaar worthy yourself!

Um, speaking of raar?! Seriously, Kara you are so far beyond fierce. You are feroce. Pronounced with my Mario Brothers Italian accent.

How amazing is this ferris wheel??


Love. Love. LOVE!!!

K&A, we love you guys and can’t wait to eat cotton candy with you again. Because you know….you need to do that at least once a month! :)
