Assuming this is not your first time here, you've probably seen these two before. Karly is my baby sister and my go-to model when I've got some new ideas I want to try out. You've probably seen her way back in the early days, and also for an impromptu portrait session involving sno-cones and hot air balloons, and here, jumping on a gigantic pillow. That's just how she is.
But none of those photos were quite as important than these. You see, these are the official engagement photos. Very official, indeed. And if you're going to have official engagement photos taken, then you must be officially engaged, and that's where Cory comes in. They're getting married next 4th of July and more excited, I could not be.
One of the benefits of having my kid sister as a client is that I know the whole story. I know that Cory was working for FCA a few years ago and came to Karly's high school to check out her Huddle. I know that Karly offered him a brownie (for breakfast! 'atta girl!) and he scoped her out on Facebook afterwards. I know that they interned together the next summer and Karly said she only liked him "30% of the time." I can tell you that after a few road trips together to different FCA camps, Cory mustered up the courage to ask her to see fireworks together and then there was a lot of hand holding going on.
These two are some of my favorite people in the entire world - Karly is so loud, so funny, so big-hearted and silly. Cory is a wonderful listener, a terrific encourager, and I know he will be a fine husband for my little sister. After two years living in different states to finish college, I'm so happy they are finally together and making plans to venture out onto this crazy life together.
I could tell you, like, 100 more things about them, but I will let the images speak for themselves. I love you, Karly & Cory! Enjoy your sneak peak. :)
