Mountain views, glowy evening light, and a cool, clear lake? This Bend engagement session was literally what dreams are made of. (Minus the mosquitoes. Mosquitoes would definitely not be a part of any good dreams.) But WOW, Ryan & Lynlee completely and totally knocked it out of the park for their engagement session. Also, anybody who jumps in the water at the end of their session will be my friend for life.
These two actually won an engagement session giveaway that I held this past spring. They made the trek from California for Father’s Day weekend, and killed two birds with one stone by scheduling their Bend engagement session while they were up here! When I told Lynlee that she had won the giveaway, her excitement was infectious. “Ahh!! I never win anything! This is amazing!!! We’re so excited and thankful!!” I love this part of my job…being able to give back and bless someone with beautiful memories. This truly sparks joy!!
Another thing I love about my job is getting a glimpse into the lives of so many wonderful people. It sounds cliché, but it’s 100% true.
These two special people are some of the most salt-of-the-earth type of people ever. Even in the short time we had together, it was obvious that they have a super solid, deep connection. They easily slip between laughing + teasing each other and snuggling up + loving on each other. It was the kind of session that I never, ever wanted to end.
Ryan & Lynlee, wow guys. Thanks for making the trip up here, and for being down to adventure with me. You blessed me so much with just your kindness and excitement. I hope you end up in front of my camera again soon!! (Also, sorry for all the mosquito bites, but hopefully these photos are worth it!)
