I’ve known Sawyer ever since we were young children – from piano recitals to tennis competitions at Coral Beach. However, as we grew older those piano recitals and tennis competitions stopped along with our run-ins. So when Sawyer’s mom contacted me to photograph her engagement party I was absolutely thrilled! Thrilled not only to photograph their engagement party but also to find out that Sawyer was engaged – because lets be real, being engaged and planning a wedding is so wonderful!
Their engagement party was hosted by Sawyers Aunt at her family home, which was absolutely gorgeous, and the perfect setting for such an event! We started off with family photographs, and thank goodness for Sawyers mom, Heidi, who continued to call out family members, shuffling them into place!
The entire Boyle and Kermode family was so incredibly welcoming, I really don’t think I could have asked for two better families to photograph and laugh with!
I loove this picture of Sawyer showing off her ring!
(P.s. Make sure to check back for Part 2 of their engagement party – the part where Sawyer, Piers and I snuck away for a mini engagement session! You won’t want to miss those photographs!)
