Maegan & DJ

A Formal Late Summer Whitehaven and Downtown Paducah Kentucky Engagement Session

It’s not very common that an engaged couple changes from their formal outfit, after the first half of their engagement session, into a second formal outfit… usually we shoot in one formal outfit and one casual outfit but when it happens I’m giddy! After all, I view the engagement session as something that we don’t do every day and therefore, it’s a formal situation for which you should dress up a tad more than usual. And Maegan & DJ knocked it out of the park with their outfits!!

Maegan & DJ met at Western Kentucky University. She was working the desk in their residential hall when DJ came in with a few mutual friends and they were introduced. DJ claims that she was interested in him first, but Maegan is sure it was the other way around. That little fact didn’t seem to matter because they quickly became an item and 8 yeas later, we shot their engagement session!
