Martin & Kara || A Snowy Flagstaff, AZ Engagement Session

After getting her number, Martin texted Kara for the first time asking her if she’d like to go running with him. And now here they are 7 months from their wedding celebration! And what’s funny…they aren’t runners, and have yet to go running! They grinned and laughed as they told me the story. It fits them and their personalities so well. There is so much life that bursts out of these two. They are dynamic, happy, easy-going, fun loving, good people through and through.

I met this in Flagstaff earlier this week for a fun session in the snow with their four adorable pups, and it was a blast! Snowball fights, jersey wars, king of the hill, being rammed by an excited Lucy, and beautiful sun. These two came nervous because they don’t normally get their picture taken, but as soon as they started playing (aka throwing snow…it’s always a good choice!) they loosened up and we had an absolute blast and got some fun pictures!

These two have such a fun wedding planned in August full of good food, mariachi music, sombreros, and ORANGE! It’s going to be quite the celebration and I can’t wait!!

    Lol…I don’t even follow football so when they said “we might go to the Super Bowl!” I thought they meant the two of them…not her team, lol. But they were super fun to shoot and be with!
