Crystal & Rae: Carnival Engagement Session

Listening to Crystal and Rae tell the story of how they met is an event itself. As they tell the story, the two of them go back and forth, each telling their favorite parts and interjecting comments when the other one messes up a detail. I can't tell it as well as they do, but I'll give you a short version of their story.

They met a mutual friend's birthday party that for one reason or another they each almost ended up not going to. But as luck would have it, Crystal and Rae both ended up at the party that night. Rae was about to leave, but when he saw Crystal walk in, he decided to stay until he had a chance to talk to her. After getting her number that night, Rae couldn't wait to see her again, and he called Crystal the very next day.

When Crystal suggested shooting their engagement photos at a carnival, I could not have been more excited! I love it when couples think of ideas for their engagement sessions that really reflect their personalities and relationship. I had a blast following Crystal and Rae around the carnival documenting their mini-date as they enjoyed the rides and games together. Just by the way they laughed and joked around with each other, it was apparent that they are absolutely crazy about each other!
