ANNA + TYLER
I've known Anna since high school so when she asked me to take engagement photos for her and Tyler I couldn't have been more ecstatic. Not only are they super fun to be around, but they are also some of the coolest people I know. I mean they LOVE the outdoors-- they ski and snowmobile and mountain bike, and I could keep going, but that is already my definition of cool.
They also happen to live in one of the most beautiful places ever (Bend, OR), so I didn't hesitate for a second about going up there and doing a sunset session at a lake in the mountains (seriously checks all of my boxes). Anna had the idea to do a cookout since this is what they did on their first date (I can't handle stuff like this) and, as she's always thinking of others, thought she could make us all dinner in the process.
Well, dinner didn't quite work out as planned -- it turns out its hard to cook while getting your photo taken! But I still think some of the pictures are super cute and they did salvage a couple burgers (and ate them for photos at my request). And don't you worry, we went out for dinner afterwards. So all in all it was super fun hanging out with friends and getting these photos in the process.
