Dylan and Maddie | Idyllwild Engagement Session
A little bit about Dylan and Maddie!
Dylan and Maddie met while they were both in elementary school back in their hometown in Texas!!!! They are middle school sweethearts and have been together for almost seven years now!!!
Some of their absolute favorite things to do together are:
- Enjoying the outdoors and being outside as often as possible!
- Fishing and hunting.
- Trying new breakfast places.
- Going to the movies!
- Cooking together!
Their EPIC proposal story!
Dylan knew that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Maddie!!! She was the perfect girl for him! While Dylan was in bootcamp to become a Marine, he spent his time writing letters back and forth to his dad to get him to help him buy a ring for Maddie so he could propose after graduation!
After he graduated from Marine Corps bootcamp, Dylan took Maddie on a helicopter ride down the coast of California at sunset and asked her if she’d marry him!!! Maddie being just as madly in love with Dylan, said YES!!!!
Engagement session planning!!!
Maddie and I connected a couple of months ago when she was planning a last minute trip to visit Dylan for the weekend at Camp Pendleton. She had reached out to me about doing an engagement session with them while she was here. With it being such short notice and in the midst of my busy wedding season, we weren’t able to make it work that weekend. Maddie knew she’d be back though, so she let me know that she’d be in touch again soon!
A few weeks later Maddie reached out to me again, letting me know that she was going to be back in town for the weekend again to go with Dylan to the Marine Corps Ball!!! So we worked together to plan their gorgeous Idyllwild engagement session for the weekend she’d be here!
A STUNNING Idyllwild Engagement!
On the day of their Idyllwild engagement session my wedding planner friend, Stacy from Sylver Weddings and Events, and I headed up early to go find the perfect spot for Dylan and Maddie’s session that evening! After grabbing lunch at the Red Kettle and getting some sweet treats at the Candy Cupboard, we did some exploring! We decided to do the engagement session at the Idyllwild Nature Center!
It couldn’t have been more perfect for Dylan and Maddie’s Idyllwild engagement session!!! It was simple stunning everywhere we turned! The epic mountain views, the trees, the large boulders, all of it was perfect!!!
During their session we all talked, Stacy helped style the celebratory toast to their engagement, they snuggled + laughed, and it was absolute perfection! The last twenty minutes of their session we were in complete awe of the beautiful pink sunset and took advantage of capturing it in their photos!
