Sometimes there are gems hidden in plain sight, in your own hometown. That’s how I feel about the locations that we chose for Karissa and Kyle’s engagement session. Two parks that I know and love well, but that are truly so beautiful – especially in the presence of two people in love! Kyle proposed to Karissa at Bush Park in Salem, so we went back there for their engagement photos, and it was so sweet and special. I’m obsessed with the dress Karissa wore, from Rent the Runway (which is such an amazing website, by the way! A great resource for engagement session attire!) Her beautiful ring, and cute little “joy” tattoo were perfect accessories, and she and Kyle just fit so well together! Kyle had a smile on his face throughout the whole shoot – clearly so happy to be with his wife-to-be! I can’t wait for their beautiful wedding in October!
