So despite the fog we had been experiencing, the afternoon was winding up quite nicely to begin our Alaska Winter Engagement Session with Kayla and Grady.
Meet Kayla and Grady! Aren’t they too cute?!?! Born and raised here in Alaska, Grady and Kayla have been together for 10 years and share the beautiful classic high school sweethearts story…but their relationship is even stronger than that.
For years, Kayla has been dealt an array of health challenges, and Grady has been a constant place of comfort, love, and encouragement for Kayla through it all. Thankfully feeling better than ever before, Kayla was just radiant with excitement about their amazing proposal and exciting wedding plans! While on a family vacation to Mexico, Grady popped the question to Kayla mid-air while they were parasailing – Seriously! All of Kayla’s nerves from parasailing melted away, and were replaced with kicking feet and squeals of joy. And, in case you got nervous like I did hearing this, don’t worry – the ring was waiting safely on the ground to grace Kayla’s hand amongst her teary-eyed family who captured the entire thing on film!
The best part about Kayla and Grady’s love is best described in Kayla’s comment “The best thing about our love is that we laugh together everyday.” I found this so true as we ran all around Hatcher’s Pass. These two live life to the fullest and have a positive, fun and love-filled connection I truly admire. Kayla and Grady’s biggest hope for their wedding this August is to “have fun”…and based on what they have shared about their wedding plans – it is going to be a BLAST “up in hurrr”! 😉
Kayla and Grady – I am so excited to have met both of you and I CANNOT WAIT to see you two lookin’ sharp on your wedding day! Congrats!
