Meet Kayla and Michael. This is their story.
This sweet couple started their journey together three years ago in October of 2012. When they met, they instantly clicked and knew they couldn't be without each other. In June of this year, Michael proposed to Kayla (in front of a crowd of people!!!) during a hike up Stone Mountain on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Now, a few months later, their wedding is set to be in October of 2016.
The first thing about Kayla that really made me fall in love was how sweet and caring she is. - Michael
I love how adventurous she is, even on our limited schedule. We can always find something to do together. Though she hasn’t gotten into anime, she does share many of my passions. Doing something you love with someone you love makes it all the better. Another thing I love (hate), even though it’s sometimes against my will, is that she helps me break out of my comfort zone and try new things. - Michael
To really know Michael, you have to understand him and I love that about the way he carries himself. There are very few that know him as well as I do and I feel blessed that I get to have that. - Kayla
I feel like I found a hidden gem. Because he's such a shy person, I feel blessed to be one of the people who knows him on the level that I do. Michael is one of the funniest people I have ever met and actually a HUGE nerd. I love the fact that he isn’t afraid to be himself in that aspect. He keeps me laughing all the time and I love that. - Kayla
It's easy to see how much they adore one another, just through photographs. The best moments of this morning with Michael and Kayla was watching him make her laugh over and over again. It was sort of contagious. Spending time with couples like this is so precious to me. We can all get stuck in a rut of unhappiness, of choosing to see the negative in the world. But if you stop and slow down, if you really look, you will see there is so much love all around you. This is why photographing love is my most meaningful passion.
A sincere thank you to Michael and Kayla for sharing your story with me and being so open to doing the sunrise session! Chase and I had a fantastic time exploring around Piedmont Park, getting to know you guys better and capturing some sweet moments.
