Catalina State Park Engagement Photos

Catalina State Park Engagement Photos in Oro Valley, Arizona

Kyle and Kiara are absolutely adorable! Get ready for a blog post with lots of snuggles and smooches! Capturing Kyle and Kiara’s Catalina State Park Engagement Photos was so much fun! When we got together for their engagement session, Kyle and Kiara had been apart for several months, so they were anxious to be together, which made for a natural and fun session with lots of kisses. I’m pretty sure these two didn’t even know I was there! 🙂

Kyle is from Tucson while Kiara is from Ecuador. You may be wondering how these two ever found each other. Well, they first met while serving their missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Peru. However, it wasn’t until after completing their missions, these two started chatting with each other online. It wasn’t long before they knew that they wanted to get married. I wish I could say that the process of getting married was just as simple as their decision to get engaged. The immigration process was definitely a challenge for these two and truly tested their patience. But like all good things, it was worth the wait to get Kiara to Tucson for their wedding.

Kiara is such a sweetheart! She just radiates happiness and joy. From the moment I met her, I adored her. She has such a great sense of humor and approach to life. Kyle has such a gentle and kind demeanor. His eyes absolutely light up every time he looks at Kiara. He is such a gentleman! One of my favorite moments was watching him buckling Kiara’s shoes for her. It was so cute.I enjoyed getting to know these two better, and by the end of our time together I felt as if we were old friends.

I say this all the time, but I feel so grateful that I get to work with such incredible humans! Each of my couples are so amazing. I loved getting to spend time with Kyle and Kiara, as well as Kyle’s father Callis (aka: the best assistant ever ) during their engagement session. Enjoy all the cuteness below!!

Engagement sessions are the best! It is a chance to get to know your photographer better, feel more comfortable in front of the camera, and to spend time together as a couple getting to have gorgeous photos of the two of you taken. If you are in need of a Tucson Engagement Photographer, I’d love to work together. As a bonus, most of my wedding collections include an engagement session, so be sure to inquire about that.
