Engaged | Cari & Rob

Taking Cari and Rob’s engagement photos is one of my tenderest memories of this spring. After a “Delugxe Brunch” with these two and our good friend Courtney, the four of us braved a little rain to snag these pics around my home. Rob and Cari are two of the smartest, funniest, and most talented people I know, and this time spent with them was refreshing and light and felt like springtime should. I am so excited for them as their wedding day approaches and can’t wait to watch these two tie the knot!

Congratulations, Rob & Cari!
