You know when you’re in the “getting to know you stage” of first meeting someone and you don’t know if you should play it cool and keep the conversation light and funny, or be straightforward and say it like you mean it? I took the light and funny approach when I first met Aaron. When we first started talking, he was on a trip with his boys to California.  Trying to come off as witty, I was kidding around about how he better not do anything stupid to get thrown in jail because I would only go 2 states away to bail him out and that was my limit. In which he quickly responded, “Oh really? Because I would go anywhere to bail you out of jail.” Points for Aaron 1 Makenna 0. Then, on the way home from his bro trip, he asked me to keep talking to him to help him stay awake, and I had said something sassy like, “Anything to make you happy,”and he responded “If you do that I will repay  you tenfold.”  Let me just tell you, he has. Where I was just trying to be charming and witty, Aaron actually is. How can a girl not fall for that?! That’s just how he is. So helpful and so sincere and such a romantic.

Here’s a few of my favorite pictures from our engagement shoot at The Little Sahara in Eureka, Utah (I didn’t even know this place existed). We drove 2 hours and were followed by a giant thunderstorm that luckily didn’t hit until right after we finished. It made for such a cool background!

    You two are a beautiful couple. I wish there were more with your fiance smiling. He just seems so serious and I love the one where you guys are looking at each other and smiling with your teeth. Very excited for you. Marriage is a beautiful thing.
