You guys… let me just say that I have been so blessed in my business to always have the sweetest and genuine couples! These two were no exception! Since Hayli and Cutler are having an outdoor summer wedding in a beautiful botanical garden, it kinda surprised me that Hayli wanted to do something outside of that box for her engagements and I of course loooovveeddd that idea! We came up with some ideas that were a mix of vintage fun with a modern twist! We also incorporated something super special into their session as well! Here’s their story:

“Around month 3 (of dating) I knew that Hayli was special and I’ve known her since 3rd grade and we had been writing a lot of letters back and fourth to each other about like dates or certain days (anniversaries or like dates). So I thought of the idea of writing a letter to her for every month we had been dating for our first year dating. It just so happened that I was going to propose very soon after our first year so I wrote one last letter of the morning of the proposal about like what I was thinking and feeling.” -Cutler

“I knew he was going to propose soon (we had already looked at rings) but I wasn’t sure when. He came by my apartment and gave me the journal and then got down on one knee to ask me to marry him 🥰 he said he wanted to continue to write letters to me in the journal while we were engaged too 😊 we got engaged on November 17th, 2018” - Hayli

Y’all… Can we all just take a minute to say “Awwwwwwwww” in unison!! I love their story and am so excited to get to capture this time in their lives. <3 <3 <3
