I bet if you told these two that they would meet their future hubby/wifey on their freshman year floor in college, they’d say you’re crazy. But that is exactly what happened when Josh & Katie joined the Service & Leadership floor at App State in 2013. What started as a friendship quickly grew into something much more. And now as they are finishing out their senior years at the university, they’re also planning the day in which they can say their vows in front of their family & friends next fall.
I reconnected with this sweet couple after seeing them at a wedding this summer shortly after they got engaged! I met Josh & Katie through the SNL floor at App as I was a mentor to their floor! At our booking consultation, I heard the story of how he proposed, and OMG y’all! This guy knew what he was doing! He planned a whole day for her with her friends, and included a scavenger hunt throughout Boone going to their favorite places. It ended at the gazebo on campus, where her friends and whole family were waiting for her and witnessed him ask his love for her hand. I knew beforehand that this couple was something special, but after hearing that story, I knew I just HAD to capture their love story through powerful images! I am so so glad that we reconnected this summer and that we were able to take their sweet engagement photos on the parkway during prime leaf season! P.S. we originally had the shoot scheduled for the day the hurricane hit. But luckily we were able to move to the shoot date to the most perfect time of year, and it was such a precious time with this amazing couple (despite the surprisingly peaceful cows!)
Thank you two for giving me the sweet honor of photographing your engagement session during this exciting time! I cannot wait until next October when we’ll be photographing your WEDDING! Yay!
