When I first received an inquiry from Mazie and asked her about what she envisioned her engagement session to be like, she replied: “We love the Midwest. Therefore, we love the snow. I have been envisioning a snowy, cozy, snuggly, engagement session. Hayden and I are both homebodies, we love to watch sports (AKA, me napping while he watches sports), and cuddle. We always say we are just “cozy” people. And, I would love for our engagement photos to reflect that. Especially in the winter time, I think that could be really fun.”
And so, we created JUST that! Starting off their session in Mazie’s cozy (and incredibly adorable!!!) studio apartment on campus we captured the two of them in their most natural element, cuddling and hanging out at home. After we all got nice and toasty indoors we adventured outdoors into the beautiful snow at a secluded & forested area nearby.
Once we arrived on location, I also found out that Hayden used to run cross country on this exact same property! Which made their sessions location all-the-more special. Can’t wait to celebrate these two on their wedding day later this summer!
