I was fortunate enough to travel to Salt Lake City, UT last weekend for a rocky mountain engagement session where Kathleen, John, and their puppy Zia, love hiking together as a family. Zia definitely knows who her parents are, because she didn't want to leave their side during the engagement session — too cute! But, Zia eventually found a stick to entertain herself with so I started snapping away. It was hard to stop taking photographs with the creek running down the mountain, the huge pine trees, and such vivid spring greenery everywhere you looked.

Kathleen + John also made the time fly by . . . they just fell into each other as a couple so clearly in love. When I'd tell Kathleen to give John a kiss . . . she'd pull him in close, wrap her arms around him, and cuddle into him just as if they were on the couch watching a University of Wisconsin Badger's football game (Oh, I forgot to mention they met at UW-Madison in the marching band)! I swear this girl is secretly a model.

Thank you Kathleen + John: for selecting me to capture your engagement session, for being such knowledgable tour guides on our mountain adventure, for making me feel so welcome in the beautiful state of Utah, and for the delicious burger + beer at the end of the day 😋
