How they met!

Kaela and Tom met by total happenstance six or seven years ago. Kaela was out of town with a friend, pulled up Tinder, and happened to swipe right on Tom, who happened to be in the area. They matched right away, started chatting, and decided to grab a drink (with Kaela’s friend in tow). As a joke, Kaela asked him if he had any food – Kaela is a big fan of snacks, and their supply had run out. Low and behold, Tom showed up with a duffel bag full of snacks, and Kaela was immediately smitten. To this day, Tom still showers Kaela with love via food and meal prepping.

They’d been together for almost six years before Tom proposed. Kaela and Tom designed Kaela’s ring together from Alyssa and Anna Jewelry, but Kaela didn’t know when Tom was going to propose. Finally, over the Christmas holiday at Kaela’s mom’s house, the day had come.

Kaela had started to hyperventilate a bit, concerned that Tom WASN’T going to propose since it hadn’t happened yet. Tom found Kaela in the guest room and told her to just relax and come downstairs. Then, in front of her family, Tom got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.

Photographer’s Favorite Moment?

My favorite moments from the session were just being able to observe the two of them together. Kaela is a dear friend of mine, but I hadn’t had the chance to see the two of them often. They are true partners, teammates; they’re incredibly supportive of one another and have each other’s backs. They’re best friends and totally willing to be romantic and vulnerable with each other.

At our last location, Eagle River Falls near Houghton, MI, I asked them if they were up for a bit of an adventure. The falls are absolutely stunning, but require a bit of scrambling and climbing to get down to a level where we could have the falls in the background of their photos.

Always the troopers, they agreed to give it a go. Tom carried Kaela’s heels down the cliff and gingerly climbed down while attempting to not dirty his suit. Kaela hiked down barefoot, like a nimble fairy, with some dress-lifting-assists from the photographer (me!). Afterward, they said that was their absolute favorite spot of the session and the adventure was absolutely worth it.
