You know when time just seems to stand still and you get lost in the moment? During Emilee and Tyler’s engagement session at Sunken Gardens in Lincoln, Nebraska, I felt like a superhero with invisible powers in the BEST possible way! Whenever these two were close to each other, nothing else seemed to matter, and the joy that radiated off of them was downright contagious.

When Emilee and Tyler walked away from me hand in hand down the cobblestone path, I saw it. That glance from Tyler, only a man completely head over heels in love with adoration gives the woman of his dreams. That, and a tasteful pat on the bottom 😉

Yep, I saw that, too 🙂

Even after someone stole Emilee’s package off her front steps that contained her engagement dress the day before the shoot, she didn’t let that ruin her weekend getaway. (Also, huge shout out to The Goodlife Boutique in Wahoo, NE, for helping my girl out!) In fact, I wouldn’t have had any idea that anything had gone wrong by the way she acted if she hadn’t clued me in. The maturity and kindness this couple demonstrated to everyone we came in contact with was refreshing and made the evening fly by, and when that golden hour hit, it was the most beautiful summer evening full of pure summer magic.

Emilee and Tyler, I love your laidback nature and sense of adventure! I can’t thank you enough for trusting me to capture your special day this upcoming Labor Day weekend in Colorado! I already know we are going to have the best time celebrating the two of you and the lifetime commitment you are about to embark upon with each other!

I hope these pictures serve as a constant reminder of this special time in your lives that is full of anticipation and excitement! Can’t wait to see you both in September and make this thing officially official!
