Second of all, Ata and Taylor were a bucketload of giggles and I adore them beyond words for that. It was literally nonstop laughter for our entire session at St. Mary's College.

We had their session just before they moved out to Oklahoma to start the next chapter of their journey together. It was definitely a little bittersweet for them to say goodbye to this beautiful campus, especially with so many amazing memories there. I got the full History Of Ata And Taylor on our visit, where we visited many of the little and big landmarks that've become such a memorable part of their relationship.

We...may have 'broken in' to the dorms, to visit a beloved porch view, and to sit outside Ata's old room. Shhh, I'm not gonna tell if you're not....


Rockclimbing is kind of a big hobby for these two, especially because Ata proposed to Taylor after their first outdoor climb. Clearly we had to hit the rockwall for this session! 

Cheers and congrats to Ata and Taylor - thank you guys so much for the amazingly sweet session, and for sharing your beautiful campus with me! -MEJ
