Everyone meet Kayla Shaddix and Colby James, my May 28th bride and groom! They are my very first couple to feature on my website/blog! I wanted to know a few things about how they met, how long they’ve been together and how Colby proposed! Here is their story as told by Kayla.
“Colby and I met in high school. We were best friends through high school and a few years after high school we started dating. We dated for about three years before he proposed.”
“And finally, the proposal. It was a casual Saturday and we were headed to Bankhead to ride 4 wheelers with friends. While we were riding, Colby mentioned that we should stop at one of my favorite spots and wait for the rest of the gang to catch up. While we were standing there talking, he suddenly pulled a ring box out of his pocket and got down on one knee and popped the question. I was so very surprised and little did I know our friends were taking pictures and filming the whole thing.”
” That weekend our friends threw us an engagement party and we got to celebrate with the people we couldn’t do life without. We have both been overwhelmed from the amount of love we have received from friends and family.”
God gave us the most beautiful sun rays at this session! The temperature outside was pretty nice for the last weekend of January! The only downside was the wind! It was pretty strong that day!
Kayla had a last minute idea and decided to bring some very sentimental props to the session! She was absolutely too sweet and thoughtful to include some of her grandparent’s belongings such as an old wicker chair, crocheted blanket, tea cups and an old lacy lamp!
I had photographed Kayla as a bridesmaid at one of her best friend’s wedding last year. This coming May, I will be capturing her as a bride and Colby as her groom! They were such a sweet couple at their engagement session and I can’t wait to capture their BIG DAY!
