An Oakledge Park Engagement Session in Burlington, Vermont

I typically travel to the Burlington area at least a couple times a year for either sessions or weddings, and I was thrilled to be back in a familiar spot last week with Kayla and Kayden!! Oakledge had so much to offer and I LOVE the beach access there!

Kayden and Kayla are two sweet souls and seeing their genuine chemistry was so beautiful. It was so effortless moving from spot to spot and it’s clear as day Kayden has the easiest time getting Kayla to smile.

The warm vibes and stunning teal dress that she wore for the session was everything!! There was a slight chance of rain that threatened the session earlier in the week, but we ended up with some sunny glow and I was living for it!!! We took portraits with the notorious treehouse that I remembered so well from when I photographed a wedding there back in 2019, and the sun filtered perfectly through my favorite tree by the water.

I had the best time taking their engagement photos and I simply cannot wait for their wedding!! Kayden and Kayla, thank you so much for having me come to Burlington to take these photos for you!!! Enjoy some of my favs ❤️
