Truckee Engagement Session | Tori & Mike | Lake Tahoe Photographer

Tori and Mike's Engagement Session was INCREDIBLE. The light. Their dynamic. Scroll for a peak and to learn more about them! 

So how did these two cuties meet?

"We met on deployment to the Western Pacific and were able to travel to Guam, Korea, and Singapore together for our first date(s)! The engagement happened after his next deployment (without me!). He proposed to me on a gondola ride with my grandmother’s wedding ring, as a complete surprise."-Tori

Fun facts about Tori: "I lived in Hawaii for 3 years before moving to California, and I had a wide variety of jobs before I joined the Navy (including working for Red Bull and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics)." -Tori

Fun facts about Mike: he lived in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for a year and enjoys building computers as a hobby. 

Fun fact about me: I'm clumsy. I accidentally knocked Mike's sunglasses into the Lake (still sorry about that). Below are images of him being a great sport about it and diving into the freezing water to retrieve them. 

Humans like these two make my job way too easy. I laughed so hard, I teared up at one point. Also, for the record, so did Mike. 

Their dynamic was so much fun and refreshing to photograph. They have a playful-laidback-rad-contagious-loving personality that instantly draws you in. 

 Random but can we just talk about how incredible Tori's make-up looks?! She did it herself on the drive to Truckee #goals

So what does the future hold for Tori and Mike (besides prepping for their wedding aka BEST DAY EVER): "We are hoping to get stationed together on the east coast in the very near future — we can’t wait to get a dog, buy a house together, and be closer to my family."- Tori
