Caleb + Claire // Engagement Session

Caleb and Claire are SO AMAZING and their story is really unique! It was so fun to spend time with them Saturday and learn all about it. Claire is from Pella and currently teaching fourth grade in Michigan— it was so sweet to hear about her passion for the kids she works with. Caleb grew up in Kenya, then moved to Canada around high school— SO COOL! While Claire was studying abroad, Caleb made friends with her roommate and when she came back, they were just friends, but over time, their friendship grew into something so much more! I love the love stories that start like a friendship then blossom into a relationship.

Caleb and Claire were crazy awesome enough to wake up really early and catch the sunrise with me at Red Rock Lake! We met up bright and early and took pictures by the water, then made our way up into a field. As Africa is really important to the two of them (Caleb proposed to Claire while they were in Tanzania!) they incorporated their love for Africa in their engagement session by wearing traditional African clothes for a few pictures. I thought that was so neat! We made our way to town where they drank coffee all cute at the local Smokey Row before taking more pictures around town. They were so genuine and sweet, I loved spending time with them.

Here are my favorite shots from their session!
