I wonder if the counselors at Camp Robindel and Camp Winaukee knew that one of the awkward camp dance mixers would be the start of a great love story that’s lasted through the years and toward a wedding. It’s a real-life Moonrise Kingdom and it’s all in this engagement session by Joyelle West Photography that has all the nostalgia of summer camp with a grown up love that is as sweet as can be. See it all in the gallery here.

From Joyelle West Photography Alexandra and Josh’s story is like something straight out of Moonrise Kingdom. Alexandra went a girls’ summer camp, Camp Robindel, on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, and Josh went to the boys’ summer camp, Camp Winaukee, down the road. They met at the age of eight at a camp dance mixer, and the rest is history. So Ally and Josh flew back from California, and we hit up Lake Winnipesaukee again for a late summer engagement session at their old camps.
