Tim & Kirsten's Engagement Shoot

The best kind of love is the one that makes you a better person, without changing you into someone other than yourself. It’s the kind of love that you don’t search for, it just finds you, as if it was always destined to be yours.

From the first moment I met Tim and Kirsten, I could tell what a loving relationship they had. It was almost as if there was an unspoken kind of devotion that you could see hidden away in her smile, yet so clearly in his eyes. It’s the kind of love that is honest and kind. Gentle but strong. It’s a beautiful kind of love that already has a head start to success because it’s made up of all the best things.

It was such a pleasure doing Kirsten’s makeup for her engagement shoot, as she was naturally radiant from start to finish. They say that happiest girls are often the prettiest, and in this case, I can agree it is every bit true. I absolutely loved being a part of this special occasion and I’m so honored to continue getting to know this amazing couple as the countdown begins for their big day. Tim and Kirsten, may the planning for the next few months bring you endless amounts of fun, may the importance of two families coming together be your main focus and may you treasure this time together as you plan for your future and watch your dreams reveal themselves.
