CORTLYN + COLLIN

JOYOUS ozark ENGAGEMENT SESSION

These two are truly some of THE warmest people you could ever encounter. Cortlyn was one of my first friends in college and I’ve been changed for the better ever since. These two met because college is funny that way, but ultimately, Collin was Cortlyn’s social media crush. AH. Yeah.You heard me right. :-) Their story is full of redemption, joy, grace, and zeee best movie quotes. Collin, I swear, has a super power to literally quote any movie known to man. Their engagement session was dang FUN and refreshing to the soul. This sunroom that we found ourselves in was in a home that meant so much to both of them. It belongs to a close friend’s family and through seasons, this home brought forth clarity, refuge, and love. To photograph them in this space was sweeter than I even realized in that moment. Later on, we went to a house in the woods full of character, and a field in the place we have all come to love. Fayetteville was home to us all in this season and for Cortlyn + Collin, it was where their relationship flourished. Take a look below at these two best friends as they radiate the Love that can only reflect the one from Above. Gosh.

I love these goobs.

These two now live in Seattle, Washington where they continue to invest in the lives of so many. They are incredibly good at that. When they aren’t outdoors, listening to Kanye, or drinking the best cup of coffee with a good book, they are loving people in the city and creating the warmest home. I love these two and am forever honored to call them some of my most cherished friends. They remind me of why we were made to be in relationship with one another.
