Natalie & Mike - Borderland State Park Engagement Session

Today I get to tell you about an incredible couple and what is one of my favorite sessions to-date! Natalie & Mike showed up for their session ready to have fun and they made each other laugh the entire time. Self-proclaimed "goof-balls," I was connected with these two by Brides Across America, and I'm so excited to be their wedding photographer in just two months!

It was nice and warm on Sunday evening during our session, with solid humidity levels, and I'll admit it's not my favorite type of weather. When I complimented Natalie and Mike on zero weather complaints toward the end of our session, Mike said "I'll take this over the desert any day."

Mike came home from Afghanistan just about a month ago, where he was serving as a DoD contractor after coming out of Active Duty. Both he and Natalie serve in the Army National Guard - so it's no wonder they didn't even break a sweat. They're so happy to be together after so much time and distance.

I saw these doors over a year (maybe even two?!) ago just walking around the park, and wanted to put a couple in front of them so badly. Natalie & Mike picked Borderland for their session and I got my wish!
