Cayla & Alex | Frederick County Fair Engagement

I have always loved carnivals and the adventurous atmosphere it brings. I love the bright colors, the night lights, the infectious laughter heard from the rides, the terribly bad for you but oh so yummy food…the list really could go on and on.

When I started the process of rebranding- I knew that I wanted a central element to be adventure- the kind of adventure that breeds playfulness, joy, and wonder. I decided I needed a shoot to showcase this vision- so I advertised that I was hosting two free couple’s sessions at the local county fair. I encouraged the couples to dress in playful fifties retro garb- we planned the dates and times, and wah-lah- a dream came to life!

Alex and Cayla were one of the two lovely couples that I had the absolute pleasure to photograph. Cayla showed up in the most adorable A-line dress, and Alex with a blue bow-tie to match. We found so many bright and colorful spots to shoot- my favorite being the ferris wheel! I was able to snag a seat in the cart above Alex and Cayla and capture their sweet ferris wheel ride! I loved getting to know this sweet couple- and love the images that came as a result!

Enjoy some of my favorites!

These two are getting married July of next year!
