Sometimes I really luck out with couples who are up for amazing adventures! When Kate and Cam suggested taking their engagement pictures on Mt. Lemmon I knew they were going to be one of those couples! From our very first meeting together I felt like we were all going to be friends! We met because I photographed Tara and Scott’s wedding earlier this year, and Kate and Tara are in the same class! I am SO glad we met because even just sitting at Starbucks Kate and Cam were bubbly, energetic, incredibly outgoing, and totally in love.
The story of how Cam proposed was one of the sweetest ones I’ve heard in a long time. It just solidified for me how sweet and in love they are. Cam worked with Kate’s family to convince her she was going to a formal event at the Omni Resort. But secretly, Cam had created a perfect proposal setting. Under a big tree he had hung twinkle lights, spread rose petals under the tree, and hung pictures from their big life moments together. It was magic. Of course, Kate said yes. Cam picked her up. They shared a kiss. And the rest is history.
That magic shone through again during their Mt. Lemmon engagement pictures! We had an amazing time taking pictures together. Cam picked up Kate again. This time while they were overlooking Tucson. Really it gave a grand finale to their engagement session, and I can’t wait for you to see it!
But my favorite part was getting to know this amazing couple better. We met at the bottom of the mountain and drove together. The drive was as much fun as the pictures themselves! We sang along to Taylor Swift. We bonded over our love for gummie bears, and pizookie, and Sprout’s cookies, and honestly all sweet snacks! I learned something awesome about Cam… he has received all A’s the entire time he’s been in college!! Seriously, guys, that is amazing! Kate is no underachiever either! She achieved one of her personal goals, and accepted an offer as an intern at Honeywell for their Future Finance Leaders Program! These two are going to be (already are) movers and shakers. I am so excited to be a part of capturing their story.
Kate and Cam, thank you so much for trusting me to document your love story! I had an amazing time with you and I can’t wait for your wedding in January!
