Stephanie & Paul | Engaged

May 24, 2017

Adventure Awaits | Wind Wolves Preserve, California

Paul and Stephanie’s courtship has been one amazing adventure! Their first date story is straight out of the movies. MANY crazy things went wrong during this first encounter such as Stephanie’s purse getting stolen and then there might have been some dumpster diving trying to find lost keys to Stephanie’s car.  Yeah! Like I said LOTS of crazy things on only their first date. Yet one awesome thing went right…They had a blast together!

So when it came time for Engagements, they wanted it to reflect their relationship.  One of their dates was at Wind Wolves Preserve, near Bakersfield, California. It was the perfect backdrop for an engagement session! Only problem was once we got there we realized they closed in 45 minutes. So that meant speed hiking for us! So glad we did, such beautiful views but honestly anywhere these two were would look amazing!  You will see what I mean when you take a sneak peak into their beautiful relationship!

So happy these two found each other. Can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for their lives. Very excited to have a small part in their adventurous love story!
