Mary and Derek- Engaged!

So, though I have lived in Boise my WHOLE LIFE, and in fact live within walking distance from this location.... Mary and Derek introduced me to the Morrison Knudson Nature Center and it was really beautiful! I can't wait to take my toddler there to see all the fish and wildlife and it's a great place just to take a stroll and get some fresh air. Mary and Derek are so stinkin' adorable together. I told them several times during the session-- they really just click! They are very natural together and even through their goofiness towards each other, you can really see how much they love each other. I barely directed them at all as they were perfect naturals. When we discussed locations for their session, they told me that they like boating a lot-- well, considering my lack of access to any kind of boat, we improvised when we found this cute little stream and found a Boise Weekly.... Derek just happened to know step by step how to make a paper boat. Boat engagement session--- Check! Love the way these turned out, and I can't wait to shoot this cute couple's wedding in McCall this summer. Enjoy.
