One of my favorite locations for an engagement session is Brown’s Island because it gives you the fresh blooms in Spring, the water, all the different bridges, a beautiful field, river rocks over looking the sunset, and more! I knew this would be the perfect spot for MacKenzie and Derrik since they were coming from out of town to take their engagement pictures. Turns out it was just in time for those pretty cherry blossoms, too!
This was my first time meeting MacKenzie and Derrik in person and we instantly connected. We had SO much fun walking around and getting to know each other better. They’re one of those couples you could just talk to for over an hour and then realize you haven’t even picked up your camera yet. MacKenzie is so sweet and I love the way Derrik makes her laugh. But you’ll also notice the way he looks at her in the pictures below and it’ll just make your heart melt! After spending just a few moments together, I knew they were adorably crazy about each other. They can be silly and laugh at each other, but they also nail the whole romantic gazing in each others eyes look. I love that MacKenzie wanted to be “more them” and chose a casual outfit with her favorite type of shoes- flip flops! All I can really wish for in an engagement session is for the couple to be completely themselves in every way and I think these pictures totally bring that out.
After leaving this shoot, I felt even more excited for their wedding day coming up in June at The Barns of Kanak! I can sense that it’s going to be a crazy fun wedding and we’re going to get some crazy good pictures! 🙂
