Portrait Sessions

kristen & caleb: portraits

one of the dearest people in my life, kristen leigh snyder, met a man from oklahoma named caleb in the fall of 2010. through a few months of occasional chats then two months of very regular phone calls [he was in oklahoma, she was in maryland] and a few months of silence [sometimes guys and girls need that silence to figure their stuff out] these two started dating in april 2011. the great united kingdom trip kristen and i took in may 2011 was one week after these two started dating. i remember kristen waking up one morning at 5am, rushing down to the lobby of our dublin hostel [which was disgusting, by the way] in her adidas shorts, rain boots and beige peacoat to Skype with caleb after his workday. it was all so new — this caleb in her life… but she was excited.

we got back from the united kingdom, her to maryland, me to vancouver. a few weeks later, caleb packed up and moved from oklahoma to maryland to date kristen [long distance suuuucks] and he’s been there ever since! AND after ten months of dating, as of saturday, february 25, 2012th these two are engaged! check out kristen’s most recent blog post. i’m sure there will be another full one to come about the proposal soon. during my maryland visit back in december [pre-engagement] i photographed these two  & i think it’s time their session is posted in full. i really love these photos, love my friend kristen, love her fiancé caleb. it’s going to be a fun year. can’t waiiiiiit for their wedding.
