Red Rock Engagement : Katelyn + Michael

Photography

Two families in Virginia, each with a respectable flock of children, befriended each other many years ago, and when their systems collided, they didn’t know they’d remain in each other’s orbit, well, forever. One of the James’ children was Katelyn, complete with fiery red hair and a magnetic smile, and she’d watch from a distance when Michael–the Alsop’s son–came over to play with her brother Corey. Both families went on vacation together, went to church together, and shared meals together on long summer nights. When Michael entered high school, Katelyn spent two more years in junior high watching him from a distance. By the time she arrived in high school, their orbits went back to being in perfect alignment.

During Katelyn’s freshman year, she’d see Michael and smile. Oh, Michael. She thought the only thing that would have made life perfect was if Michael Alsop asked her to prom, but he was a junior and well-liked and handsome. Focus, Katelyn, focus. But Michael noticed her, especially after a few of his friends wanted to ask her out. He couldn’t synthesize his feelings for Katelyn James, the girl he went swimming with as a kid and joked with in junior high. The little girl with fiery red hair grew and a magnetic smile up to be a gorgeous girl with fiery red hair and a magnetic smile. But she was different. And he really liked different.

Michael and Katelyn went on their first date their freshman year of high school and have been together since. By each other’s sides, keeping James and the Alsop families doing what they do best: laughing, loving, and planning a fantastic wedding in their Virginia hometown. I had the distinct honor of shooting their engagement session at Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas last week. Katelyn is a photographer, so she was in Las Vegas with Michael for WPPI, so things worked perfectly for us. I’m so, so honored to document their wedding on 10.10.10!

What I should mention before this post proceeds is that Michael and Katelyn deserve SO much credit!! We spent the afternoon outrunning a vicious storm and it was freezing…even by Virginia standards! 😉

Katelyn, you make me smile…

It started to pour, so we hung out in their rental car for a while and chatted until the weather got to a sprinkle…here they are working it out in the wet weather…

Rawr.

So then a strange thing happened…it started to SNOW. The only thing was I didn’t know it was snow because I’d never seen snow fall from the sky. Ever. We’re shooting and we’re all freezing when Michael says, Hey, Jasmine, it’s snowing!! Just like that, matter-of-factly. And I’m all, RUN TO THE CAR!!!! What can I say, I’m dramatic. We got in the car and drove to Red Rock Canyon for some more pictures and thankfully the snow/rain held off for a bit more.

Work IT…

After a quick change in the car, we shot more engagement pictures in the desert and it was such a cool experience for me because I’ve never done it before. Leave it to another photographer to bring such a challenge! 😉

Katelyn and Michael, you’re the best. I completely adore you and can’t WAIT for your wedding this October…bring it on!! 🙂

    I knew she looked familiar! I’ve visit her blog as well and she is such a cutie! I was laughing hysterically (trying to be silent about it so that my co-workers don’t think I’m more insane than usual) when I read the GET IN THE CAR!! part. Love it!!

    so. incredibly. awesome. the one with the clouds in the background where they’re sitting behind the bench in the slide show is probably the best picture i’ve ever seen before. i think i’m going to make it my profile picture, is that weird? great job j star, you’re sure giving katelyn a run for her money.

    i love her red hair sooo much. i also love everything about this session, because, well, it’s in the desert. and it snowed and it was your first snowfall. now you know what it’s like for the majority of the country shooting sessions in the winter 🙂 my favorites are the b&w’s in the road.

  38. Karen Taggart

    March 19th, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    The stormy day made it that much more dramatic. Beautiful as usual!!!

    I love these! The beautiful setting, the moody skies. Just gorgeous! And, maybe I’m a little biased because they are from Virginia. 😉

    These are stinkin’ cute! You did a beautiful job as always and I love the fact it was your first SNOW!! How cool was that!! I live in KY and while at WPPI it was warmer at home than in the middle of the desert! What was up with that!!!? Your presentation was also the highlight of my trip .. my one reason for making my reservations and you stood above and beyond my expectations! I left feeling enlightened and inspired! <3 Kellie

    March 19th, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    I feel like you should have a shirt that, on the front, would say something like: Rain? Snow?! And then on the back it would say: No big deal. I got this.

    You rock!

  89. Patti

    March 20th, 2010 at 3:58 am

    I am truly amazed that you have NEVER seen snow fall from the sky. Brent and I were happily soaking up WPPI from the inside of MGM and were totally oblivious that it was snowing until we went to the B School Party that night and a friend told us it had snowed. I am sure we brought it from Canada!!! Brent and I will have to get married in November so you can come work your magic in the snow… 🙂

  90. -brittany-

    March 20th, 2010 at 4:06 am

    Jasmine…you had never witnessed snow falling before?!?!?! That is crazy! 🙂 These pictures are fantastic and one would never no that you three were fighting off crazy weather. The last shot is my absolute fav!!!

    March 20th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Adorable couple! I love your outfits! Katelyn, the blue and yellow outfit with boots is awesome on you! And I love his aqua shirt with navy tie. The pictures aren’t half bad either 😉

  96. Bobbi & Mike Alsop

    March 20th, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    WOW!!! Are those our two little toddlers all grown up? What a great backdrop to showcase two wonderful lives. We’re so proud of you both. Great pictures Jasmine!!! Look forward to meeting you 101010!!!

    March 20th, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Oh Jasmine …. I had to pause and have a 30 second laugh break when I read about ‘never seen snow fall from the sky’ … how priceless!!!! 🙂

  98. Alicia Damron

    March 20th, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    I love this couple and I don’t even know them. They look so good together, and this next statement is going to expose me for the nerd I am, but they look like a grown-up version of Ginny Weasly and Harry Potter. I love it!

  99. Valerie

    March 20th, 2010 at 11:38 pm

    It’s really cool to see your shots from the desert. I live in the desert so I don’t always relate to the beautiful green scenery that most people shoot in. These are great! I’m inspired!

  100. Michelle Hebert

    March 21st, 2010 at 2:06 am

    Wow….you are truly a girl from S. Ca! Before I moved out of L.A, I never saw snow fall, believed anything below 70 degrees was cold, and if I saw a storm coming, I would crawl back in bed with my jammies. But….you however had MAD skills and still took some amazing pictures! These are beautiful and I am proud that you endured jacket weather during a photo shoot…hehe! Thanks for sharing J*

    Beau-ti-mous! He can work it too. Although something tells me he has had some "c’mon, will you pose like this for me, just this once for practice… PUHLEAASSSEEE?!", kinda practice! Oh what we ask from our men! Great pictures j! Kaetlyn & Michael, they are awesome! I love the "pop" in what you wore. The backdrop was gorgeous! Sure won’t find that ’round these here Va-jin-ya parts! Jasmine, can’t wait to see what you do for their wedding!
