Adam and Mikayla’s engagement session was my first session with an airplane! We did their Denver engagement photos at the Centennial Airport. Adam even took me and Mikayla up for a plane ride during the engagement shoot!! It was a little 4-seater Cessna plane and it was amazing!
Mikayla and Adam both work in the aviation industry and met at a work conference. Adam has been an airplane mechanic at Centennial Airport for years and recently finished his pilot’s license!
When they met at a work conference, Mikayla was living in Iowa and Adam lived in Colorado. They spent a couple years doing long distance and traveling to see each other. In 2020, Mikayla made the big move from Iowa to Colorado! In 2022, Adam took Mikayla up for her first plane ride with him and he proposed!
I love that we were able to do their engagement session at a place that is important in their relationship and were able to include an airplane! It makes their engagement photos so much more special! Since Adam has a connection to the Centennial Airport he made it easy to set up their engagement session there! If you’re thinking of taking engagement photos at the Centennial Airport they have a section on their website explaining how. You can find the details on Centennial’s website here.
After our plane ride and time at Centennial airport, we went to Highlands Ranch to finish their engagement session at Fly’n B Park. Fly’n B Park has fishing ponds and easy walking trails. The huge trees lining the walking trails had started changing and were at peak fall colors! Perfect timing!
I loved getting to know Mikayla and Adam, and it was so fun to have my first engagement session at an airport with a bonus plane ride! This will always be a memorable engagement session for me!
