Kayla + Josh | Modern Anthropologie Style meets Vintage Romantic Picnic

Cupcakes, Mountain Meadows, and Happily Ever After with Katy Hall

This adorable, lighthearted, full of life and love engagement shoot was a must have - not because of the equally attractive Kayla and Josh, or their super stylish Anthropologie ensembles, or even their old-school romance inspired picnic complete with a colorful bunting, well loved quilt, and a basket of goodies. Its because their engagement shoot, captured by the super talented Katy Hall, is a testament to young love, a promising future, and every fabulous thing in between. This couple looks exactly how love should soon as you see the rest you will get exactly what I mean. Stylish, simple and real, their love, that sparkle and light and fun spirit shines through in every image.

Katy tells us: "The moment I met this sweet girl, I knew I wanted to be the one to capture her special day. She is full of love and a passion for life that I thought was unmatched. Then I met this amazing guy and I realised he’s equally contagious in his love for adventure, life, and laughter. Their engagement session encompasses their love for adventure and the simple pleasures in life.”

I am just in love with their love story! As Kayla tells it: Josh and I met my first night at college at a friend’s house and continued bumping into each other through mutual friends. We first began hanging out because of our interest in the show LOST which we watched at his house for a study break. I knew he must really like me when I got Swine Flu that semester and he still hung out with me when I was feeling pretty sick!” True love, most certainly!

But it's Josh's proposal that takes the cake -- or the cupcake in this case: "There is a lookout over the whole town called Garvin Heights. Some of my friends brought me up there one night and led me down a little path lit with candles. He was waiting at the end with chocolate covered strawberries and my favorite food – cupcakes and of course a ring! A friend filmed the whole thing. My favorite part of the whole story is that’s where my dad proposed to my mom.” Serious husband points!
