Shaylyn and Casey had plans to take their engagement pictures in a snowy winter wonderland, but Mother Nature adjusted their plans to the beautiful campus of California State University, Chico. Shaylyn and Casey shared a dance during their engagement session, and they made the dip look easy! You can tell that these two often dance together. Neither of them had two left feet; and they smiled, giggled, and kissed throughout their session. It was such a joy to spend the afternoon with these two. You can see more engagement sessions here.
Shaylyn and Casey first met while they were out swing dancing. Who knew that this first dance would have been the beginning of a beautiful thing! They still continue to dance together today.
Shaylyn was hoping for a Christmas proposal. Instead, Casey gave her a trip to Paris for Christmas! Casey needed Shaylyn to have her passport and travel documents in line in order for him to pop the big question. Casey had originally told her that they were going to relax the first morning in Paris, but Shaylyn woke up to Casey hurrying to get ready. Shaylyn was trying to catch up and get ready; but when she plugged in her curling iron, it broke! She ended up leaving for their morning adventures with her hair in a bun. To Shaylyn‘s surprise, Casey took her to the Eiffel Tower that morning; and he dropped down to one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes! Not only did Casey surprise her with a proposal on their first morning in Paris, but he had hired a photographer to capture this momentous event. He had also secured the photographer for an evening portrait session in Paris! They now have plenty of pictures to relive their proposal story.
Shaylyn and Casey, I am so happy that you two met that one night while you were both out swing dancing. It is easy to see how comfortable you two were in each other’s arms, whether embracing or while Casey led Shaylyn in a slow dance on campus. You two were in sync, and the love you share was easy to see. I hope these pictures bring a smile to your faces as you think how far you two have come since that first night you two met. I am so excited for you to see some of my favorites from your engagement session.
