Sailboat Hybrid Engagement | Haley & Zach

This session was so special to us. The bride to be here is a fellow wedding vendor and currently planning her own wedding! Tim and I could not be more excited to photograph these two for their engagement and upcoming bridal portraits & big day! Obviously if you’re looking for a wedding videographer be sure to check out her page. Now let’s chat about this hybrid engagement session. They wanted their session to be unique to their love story so we went back to where it all started with them: the bar. We absoutely love when couples want to make their images have a personal touch and that’s exactly what these two did! They even added in their adorable and sweet rescue pup Dude for some of the photos.

Once upon a time Haley worked at a brewery called Fatty’s. There was one guy who always came in super dirty from building hotels all day and would sit at the bar. Suddenly I realized this guy was coming in a lot (like every shift I worked) and I started to realize he’s a pretty cool and chill guy, I think we should be friends. One day out of our many days of hanging at the brewery, I asked Zach to come by, Zach said he leaped right into his truck as quick as he could- little did I know he had a huge crush on me. It ended up just being the two of us hanging out all night long, talking, laughing like we had been friends for years. SO I trusted my gut and here we are. 3 years later and he’s the best thing that has ever happened to me!!

Zach lived on a sailboat when I met him, which was quite the adventure! I loved all of our mornings we would spend together on the boat and suddenly sailing became a special thing for us- even though I’m not very good at it haha. One afternoon we took the boat out with some friends and we were having a blast, it started to rain and Zach grabbed me to tell me how much he loved me and then he got down on one knee! I was so surprised and of course said YAS! There was a beautiful rainbow that magically appeared after and everything was like a dream come true that day! Zach has made my whole life a dream come true since I’ve met him and I’m so grateful to be marrying my best friend!
