It was so chilly and windy at Lake MacBride when I met up with Josh and Teagan for their engagement portraits. Thankfully, these love birds embraced the weather and rocked their session! We started the session over by the beach area of Lake MacBride State Park. The fall colors were starting to pop. I love Teagan's beautiful blue-teal toned scarf against the fall backdrop! Josh and Teagan first met on Bumble. " Teagan actually paid for one week in order to message with a missed connection of someone else, but wound up messaging me as well. She then forgot to cancel the subscription so she now says I'm the best $16 she ever spent," Josh shared. Josh went on to share, "On our first date, we went to dinner, the theatre, and then drinks afterwards. Neither of us wanted the date to end. As I was walking her to her car she asked me for my number, beating me to the punch (I still give her a hard time about this)." It was so windy on the spillway, but I think we got some amazing portraits of these beautiful love birds!! The fall colors with their second outfit were perfect!! I love the bold yellow, red, and green! While coronavirus put a damper on Josh's grand plans for the proposal, making it hard for him to decide on the perfect proposal during a pandemic. One day, he decided that waiting for the "perfect moment" because, to him, the perfect moment is a moment they share together. So early one morning, with Teagan still asleep in her pajamas, Josh proposed and Teagan said "yes!"
Love it!! Josh and Teagan were so much fun to photograph!! They are naturals in front of the camera and are not afraid to be silly and have fun with their portraits!! After a lot of overcast skies, the sun popped through the clouds just as the sun was setting. My favorite time of day! I think these glowy sunset portraits are my favorites!! At the very end of the session, Josh got to break out his fan wardrobe and show his love for his favorite hockey team. We laughed so much and had a ton of fun with these portraits! Thank you so much to Teagan and Josh for braving the chilly, windy weather! I had so much fun with you both and loved getting to know you better!! I'm even more excited for your wedding day next year!
