bethanne & tyler | ENGAGED

A California boy meets a Mississippi girl… in Africa. Can it get any better? Yes, that California boy is head-over-heels for that Mississippi girl, and that girl thinks her boy hung the moon. If you can’t tell that from these photos then you’re blind. There’s just a total ease in the way these two interact and I am so happy I get to document this stage of their lives.

BethAnne and I went to college together… or, rather, I went to BethAnne’s college… and though she’s busied herself serving the world the last few years in the neatest ways, I’m so grateful we’ve stayed connected. As I said on my Instagram feed when I posted the above image yesterday, this couple is the best thing ever to photograph… or to be friends with… or be around… or, to look at in pictures. So, enjoy!

What’s so great about them? ‘Cause they go from sweet (above) to crazy (below) all on their own without my prompting…

I figured Miss Mississippi College deserves a grand picture on the Quad, so, here it is:

In honor of the time they spent together in Africa, they wore traditional attire from that country for just a few photos at the end of the session (which explains his skirt-like silhouette below)
