Engagements by Cayton Photography
From the mountains to the sea, we photograph your engagement sitting with an eye to capturing your relationship. We help you pick a location and recommend best outfits. Of course, you’re welcome to bring more than one and to do more than one thing on your engagement sitting. Did you fall in love fly fishing, rock climbing, hiking or mountain biking? Let us come along and capture meaningful moments that show your love for one another and create a memory that you can look back one day and reminisce upon.
