‘Teen Mom’: Maci Bookout Poses For Vintage Engagement Photoshoot With Fiance, Taylor McKinney
Maci Bookout’s wedding date is rapidly approaching, and the reality TV star is celebrating her upcoming nuptials by sharing sweet shots from her engagement photo shoot. The Teen Mom OG star posed for vintage-inspired photos with her fiance, Taylor McKinney, and posted the snaps to Instagram.
The 25-year-old mom-of-three took to social media to share a series of gorgeous photos of her and her hubby-to-be, taken by her longtime photographer, MTV News reported. The first shot of Maci Bookout’s engagement photos featured the fiery redhead in a red lace romper with a dramatic smoky eye and her hair in an elegant up do. She cuddled up against her fiance, Taylor McKinney, who wore a pair of dark gray slacks with a crisp white button down shirt and black suspenders.
“Adoration. Devotion. Passion. Of course @brittanyphotographs killed it again. Thank you for always capturing the beautiful moments in our lives!” Maci wrote in her caption.
Maci Bookout’s engagement photos all have a vintage theme, but they’re set against a rustic backdrop of a lush green forest. In the next shot, the couple each wore a more a casual outfit, with Maci in denim high-waisted shorts, a denim button down shirt, and a red bandana tied around her hair, and Taylor wearing a pair of red pants with a tan belt, and a navy blue, collared shirt.
Continuing with her engagement photo posts on Instagram, Bookout shared a collage of three shots, one of her holding a string of balloons while Taylor hovered above her in mid-air, then a shot of Taylor lifting his bride-to-be in the air as she held onto his shoulder and bent her left leg at the knee. In the last shot, the couple each laid on their stomachs on the ground, with hands locked in an arm-wrestling pose while exchanging a loving, playful look.
“I am the anchor that supports his dreams and determination. He is the safety that holds me each time I reach for another star. We are a team. We are best friends. We will always be better together,” Maci wrote on Instagram.
Her romance with Taylor was well documented on MTV’s Teen Mom OG. Maci and Taylor have been dating since 2013, and they started their relationship as a long distance union. But her motocross-riding beau moved from Dallas into Maci’s home in Tennessee in 2014, according to Wetpaint.
Taylor popped the question to Maci in January, and fans got to see the special moment during the Season 6 premiere of MTV’s hit reality TV series Teen Mom OG, which aired last month. McKinney proposed to Maci on the beach, and he even asked her 7-year-old son Bentley, whom she shares with ex-fiancé Ryan Edwards, to be his “mini best man,” MTV News reported. Maci has two other children, 15-month-old daughter Jayde Carter, and 3-month-old son Maverick Reed, whom she shares with Taylor.
Brittany Photographs, the Denver-based photographer hired to take Maci Bookout’s engagement photos, posted the full photo shoot, featuring the gorgeous couple on Facebook. Brittany explained that she first came up with a concept of a “glam gown, mountain-scenery” style shoot for the blushing bride, but Maci explained that she wanted to go with a vintage vibe for her engagement photos. The photographer agreed, and she shared a sweet anecdote about Maci and Taylor and her relationship with them.
“I think their engagement portraits are so incredibly them. They’re such a fun couple and they have their own style and approach to the way they live their lives,” Brittany wrote on Facebook. “Maci and Taylor deserve so much happiness and have worked so hard to build their lives together. Working with this amazing family for the past year and a half has been some of my most cherished times spent with my camera.”
