When friend and fellow photographer, Kelsey, reached out to me about photographing her wedding, I was so excited. I spent four years studying Commercial Photography with Kelsey but hadn’t yet met her fiancé, Alan.

 

Convinced they would be perfect together, a mutual friend set Kelsey and Alan up on a date. It was clear they had a connection from the start. Kelsey and Alan have so much in common. They’re homebodies who just love each other’s company. They both enjoy reading going book shopping on dates. They like to pick out books for the other to read.

 

Kelsey and Alan also have such a heart for animals. I was thrilled when they asked if they could include their dogs in their Engagement Session. The 3 sweet pups you’ll see in the photos below are all rescues, and they truly are part of the family. Kelsey and Alan have 2 cats as well. That’s right… 3 dogs, 2 cats (and counting if I had to guess). Their passion for adopting and caring for animals in need reveals a core part of who they are as people – compassionate, warm, and big-hearted.

 

Kelsey  & Alan – I can’t wait for your celebration in July at Trailhead at Cascade Lofts. I just know your incredible style, big hearts, and your deep love for each other will make your day equally gorgeous and meaningful. Thank you for letting me capture it for you. – Kate
