Kayla and Steven’s Summer Engagement // Clear Lake, South Dakota

Kayla and Steven’s summer engagement session turned out perfectly, in every regard. Steven and Kayla traveled from Glenwood, Minnesota, to Clear Lake, South Dakota, for me to capture their summer engagement session. We had such a lovely time together and enjoyed some yummy tacos before their session to catch up on all of their wedding plans. The weather was absolutely perfect with a slight breeze to keep us cool, and even the mosquitos behaved! I am so excited to capture their wedding day this coming November at Gathered Oaks in Alexandria, Minnesota. We are hoping for some flying snowflakes, or at least Kayla is.

These two met in high school while attending different sporting events. Ironically, in Kayla’s own words, “We actually had a strong dislike for each other until 2020. I reached out to him as I knew he was going through a hard time in his life. One of my very good friends from high school (AJ), his girlfriend, Kori, and I went boating with Steven.” Shortly after, Kayla and Steven tried to get their friends AJ & Kori to go out to eat with them, but ended up on what would be their unexpected, first date alone. Zorbaz in Spicer, Minnesota set the scene for the start of their relationship.

As a couple, they love to travel and spend time with family. They have two fur babies–Maci and Oliver. Ironically, Steven is very quiet and shy, while Kayla is the complete opposite. Together, they become a power couple. During Kayla and Steven’s summer engagement session, anyone would notice how big Kayla’s heart is, while how tender Steven showers her with affection.

Steven’s favorite memory of their love story is one afternoon when they and their friends AJ & Kori went boating. Trying to be funny, Steven told the girls to jump into the water, then drove away. Unfortunately, the girls had to swim back to the boat. Too funny! While Kayla’s favorite memory is when Steven willing dressed up as the man in the yellow hat from Curious George, for Halloween, and she dressed up as…well…George.

These two were just way too much fun! Clearly, we got some of my favorite engagement photos ever and I am absolutely positive they are going to bless my camera even more on their big day. I can’t wait for their wedding!
