So…this blog post is very special to me because this handsome young man happens to be my little brother, Matt. Matt + Lindsay were “set up” by two good friends during a camping trip. Despite both growing up in the same small town, these two had never met (which is borderline CRAZY in Reno – everyone knows one another in some way). The two hit it off immediately and have been inseparable ever since. Matt proposed to Lindsay on a mountainside near Virginia City. He had a custom ring that he had designed  in his back pocket. As the story goes, he asked her to turn with his back toward him so that he could take a photo of her while she was admiring the view. When she turned around, he was down on one knee with the ring in his hand. Her answer to his question was, “FUCK YES!” I am elated for Lindsay to become a part of our nutty little family.

In honor of their first “introduction”…I met them up at this beautiful mountain lake. We put on our hiking shoes, grabbed a couple of beers, and went on an adventure. Having your sister take your engagement photos probably was a bit more awkward than having some random person do it…but it was also much more fun. Lindsay and Matt trekked through the sagebrush, climbed on top of fallen trees, hiked down hillsides, and even got in the water. OH…and a MOTHER FLIPPING BALD EAGLE decided to join us (unfortunately I didn’t have my zoom lens on me, but you can definitely see it in the photos towards the bottom of the post). Yes, folks…their session was observed by our country’s most regal bird.

Matt + Lindsay make my heart smile. Their love is so sweet and you can tell that they absolutely adore one another. I am beyond honored to share some images from our jaunt out into the wild.

side note: Lindsay is an AMAZING silversmith. Her jewelry is gorgeous (Honey & Goldies)…definitely check it out. Ridiculous talent.
