There’s just something about lovey, dovey, gooey adorable sweethearts that make me melt. If you didn’t know this about myself - I married my highschool + college sweetheart, and I think he is pretty much the bee’s knees. So when I meet a couple who met each other at school and just KNEW they were meant for each other, it hits really close to my heart.

Makayla + Gabe are college sweethearts, and it was obvious as soon as I met them that they are head over heels for each other! These two cuties are both Pittsburg State University students, and wanted to incorporate their school into their shoot!

I am also an alumni from Pitt State, so OF COURSE I was down! We decided to meet at the gorgeous college lake to start their session right at golden hour. This location is right next to the famous Carnie Smith Stadium, and is the perfect spot to get the perfect golden light. We wandered around the lake, got chased by some wasps, struck some cute poses by the willow tree, and even found some glowy spots right next the chapel on campus.

Throughout their entire shoot, Gabe and Makayla kept making me smile with how dang cute they are. Gabe was hesitant to do certain poses without checking with his lady to make sure he didn’t smudge her makeup, they kept whispering adorable little jokes to each other, etc etc etc cute things etc. Seriously, I can’t handle how sweet.

After making our way all around the pond, we decided to head over to a nearby field to finish up their session. The light here was GORGEOUS, and I was absolutely loving every second of it! These two nailed all their poses, and made all of them look so natural.

This session was seriously a dream, and I am so over the moon happy for these two to spend their lives together. Congrats, you two! Here are a buncha my faves from their session!
