CrossFit Engagement ~ Nikki & Candyce

A CrossFit Love Story.

When Nikki and Candyce told me they wanted to do some of their engagement pictures at Nikki’s CrossFit box, I was totally stoked!  They brought their two rescue dogs along and we had a blast playing with the weights and coming up with poses.

KD decided she was the star of the show and liked to sit right in front of me while I was taking pictures.CrossFit Engagement PhotographyCrossFit Engagement Pictures

I’d like to take a moment to point out how strong Candyce is.  

She picked up weights like it wasn’t a big deal.  Being completely new to CrossFit, I had no idea how heavy the weights actually were.  I tried to help move some out of the way and couldn’t make them budge.  Luckily, the ladies helped me out and were really nice about moving equipment wherever I wanted it.Kiss Overhead SquatOverhead Squat

I couldn’t resist taking some pictures of them, “Tying the Knot.”

Nikki and Candyce, I had so much fun spending the afternoon with you.  I love hearing your engagement story and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding!
