What a fun session! We did this in Brent’s Grandparents Apple Orchard which is btw one of the only orchards that lets you pick your own, everyone should go there for apples plus the scenery is gorgeous! Tell Jim and Alice Hello they are the BEST!!
I had a great time with Elise and Nick, I can’t wait to work with them in September at their wedding at Lake Eden and her bridals in Asheville, NC are going to be amazing i’m sure she’s a naturally pretty girl.
I love getting to know the couples in the engagement session which is always great I feel it helps it become friends instead of ‘clients’ which happens most of the time and of course it did this time, they are GREAT!
Before we met them like I do most couples I asked them their story not only does this help me decide on a location it helps me KNOW their story which I always want to know.
Elise told me they love to do Crossword Puzzles, watch movies, cook, drive the BlueRidge Parkway and play with their puppy. She collects vintage cameras and taking photos so it’s know wonder why I like her so much 😉
They went to the SAME middle School and High School and get this they dated TWICE once in middle once in High School. Their 1st REAL date back then was the Matrix. They Graduated went their separate ways she went to Wake he went to State. Elise tells me “A little over a year after college I was into the TV show Psych and was going through Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum numbers series. The main character in Psych reminded me A LOT of Nick, and the guy/romance in the books reminded me of the future I wanted. I found him on AIM (he hadn’t changed his screen name since high school), and we reconnected. He proposed a year later!”
Hmmm ok I’m a sucker for Romance and stories like this but HOW NEAT is that??!!!
Here is how he proposed trust me it’s worth reading!!
Perfect Engagement right??!!
ok now for their photos and Elise and Nick I can NOT wait until September I KNOW it will be just perfect, Elise I’ll be seeing you in a couple of weeks for your bridals, can’t wait!!!
