Kai + Garret’s Laid-Back Session


This session was different than others. Kai + Garret actually model all the time for content days, styled shoots, and workshops – so long story short, they KNOW what they’re doing. And you can tell because they look freaking amazing in every single shot!!

But I decided to ask them to step out of their comfort zone and to NOT POSE. To just enjoy it, and be themselves while taking in this beautiful scenery. To do what they would do if they were going on a romantic date to the pond with each other, with the intention of being present with each other. And wow it turned out amazing!!


Plus I got some of my fav drone shots ever at this shoot!

(That is 100% a subtle hint that you should DEFINITELY bring your 4-legged besties along to your session here. For fun ways to incorporate your pets into your session or elopement, check out this article!)


You get beautiful mountain views, tons of green trees (and amazingggg colors in the fall), and wildflowers in the spring + summer. It’s such a great and easily accessible location for a session if you’re looking to be by the water + in the trees!
