Heather and Max are the kind of people you instantly want to be friends with. Their love for each other and zest for life is utterly contagious. I met them through my friend Paula last year and when she recommended me to do their engagement photos, I was ecstatic! The two part engagement series was shot on a rainy day in their apartment complex and then at sunny Belcarra Park the following weekend. Belcarra is where Max proposed, and it was so special that they brought me back there with them to take some photos. Their other family member, Kalix the chocolate lab, was such a great sport both shoots.

If the photos don't give it away, we had a blast and I cannot wait for these two to finally get married in Mexico next month. Hope these photos make you as happy as they make me. I can't help but smile every time I look at them!
