How many of you are familiar with The Spiral Jetty in Utah? We weren’t before today’s adorable e-session, but learned it’s a man made art structure created by the artist Robert Smithson in 1970, in the middle of no where, that is visible from the sky! So rad. It also happens to be a favorite spot for this super sweet duo, Mallory and Christian. :)
According Kayleen T. Photography, the talent behind these amazing photos, Mallory and Christian are so happy and full of zeal, they move and interact so naturally. They have such a unique style and great hair! Christian designs and builds furniture and much of their time is spent at his design studio hanging out and creating cool pieces.
We love it when couple’s can just be themselves and let loose for their photos! These images are some of our faves. So, so fun!
Major love for this sweet, double-exposed shot!
What a cool place…
Mallory + Christian have the cutest story of how they met as kids + eventually ended up falling in love! Check it out below:
I was in elementary school when Christian and I first met. I had just moved into the neighborhood and Christian’s mother came to welcome us. Christian was there too, standing shyly behind his mother. He had long hair, no shoes, and I adored him.
We shared a back fence (the perfect setting for real-life romance) and spent a few years simply as good friends and close confidants. Although, I can clearly remember going to an Explosions in the Sky concert with him and dearly wanting to hold his hand when, “Your Hand in Mine” began to play.
Years later, our friendship grew into a relationship of love and support. Christian decided to serve an LDS mission. We knew this meant spending two years apart, only being able to communicate through letters. A few weeks before he left on that journey, we went to The Spiral Jetty. The jetty itself is breathtaking and our time there was so happy that Christian asked if, over two years later, we could have our engagements in the very same spot. …We did!
Congrats, you two! And best wishes from GWS!!
