kayla + jonathan | roanoke, va engagement

I am SO excited to be sharing Kayla + Jonathan’s engagement session with y’all today!  These two compliment each other perfectly, and it was so evident when I spent the evening with them.  Kayla brings joy and laughter into every moment, and Jonathan has a calm, easy way about him that seems to gently ground her.  They pull each other close so naturally, they make each other laugh effortlessly, and they made my job just as easy as it could be!  (Not to mention they looked fabulous – just wait until you see how polished + coordinated their ensembles were!)

They both live in Roanoke, and when Kayla read my “wish list” of places I’d love to shoot in and saw that I would love to shoot in downtown Roanoke, she took a little chance with me!  We spent the first half of their session in downtown Roanoke, and then moved to the Roanoke Mountain Overlook for the second half of their session.  And I’m so, so grateful that they chose to trust me in a new (to me) location!  We had the most magical light, and we ended up creating some of my favorite images of my career!  And I can’t wait for y’all to see them!

Kayla, Jonathan, here are a few of my favorite images from our session!  I hope y’all love these as much as I do!!!

Both of these next two are FAVES!  (also, how right was I about their outfits being so perfectly polished + coordinated?!  I’m a little bit obsessed with Kayla’s dress!)

When I asked them to slow dance, they surprised me with ACTUAL ballroom steps!  I loved it!

KAYLA!  You are gorgeous, girl.

And I have to end with another fave – love, love, love this black & white!

Kayla, Jonathan, thank you for inviting me into this sweet season of your lives!  It’s already been a joy and a privilege!  I so enjoyed getting to know both of y’all better during our session, and I can’t wait to do this again on your wedding day!  🙂
