Jesse & Eile
These two have one of the cutest stories I've ever heard. They first started dating when they were in high school. Things didn't work out but they remained friends for quite some time. Eventually, they decided to give it a try again. After almost a year together, Jesse knew that he wanted to marry her, so he planned a trip to Disneyland where he proposed. They also found out that they were going to be bringing in another human into the world, on the exact day they first started dating. How crazy is that?!
Fast forward to this year, and as Miss Laiken has made her debut, she also got to be apart of her mom and dad's engagement photos at the Phoenix Zoo Lights. It was the best way to start off the New Year, especially since Jesse and Eile will be getting married here too! This engagement session was a little different since we started at night, but that's why I am in love with these guys because it was all their idea. If you've never been to Zoo Lights it's definitely worth the trip, it's so magical and Christmas music plays continuously in the background. One of the most unique things about this years Zoo Lights was the Dinosaurs in the Dessert exhibit. Jesse and Eile made it a point that we had to go there, they even put their little girl in her dinosaurs pants for the occasion, it was perfect!
I truly enjoyed the time we got to spend with this little family. Seriously, anyone that wants to include a T-Rex automatically makes them the coolest couple ever, right?! I'm beyond thrilled to be coming back here again in a little over a month, but this time they'll officially be husband and wife!
