Working with Amanda & Chris was such a treat, not only was it a pretty fun session but we walked away with beautiful photos. During the session, as I’ll sometimes do I asked them to tell me why the other would make the best husband or wife. Something struck me about what Amanda said, “I know I’m safe with him”.

I often try to figure out how each couple “loves” one another. And it hit me, he is her protector, she said yes to him because she knows that no matter what happens he will always be there for her, with love, every step of the way. Moreover, I think C hris asked Amanda┬áto spend the rest of her┬álife with him because he had found someone worth protecting. Someone so full of happiness and positivity that he falls in love with her a little more each day. Some people get married because it is the “next step” in being an adult, but not these two. What I see is that they have chosen each other to take this journey with. Regardless if they find themselves on the easy path or the hard, what I see is a couple devoted to loving one another every step of the way.

“Chris proposed on April 29, 2016. He told me we were getting away for an early birthday celebration since my birthday is in May. Our first stop was at King Family where we did a tasting and picked up a couple bottles of wine. After that, we drove to a little artsy cottage that Chris found on Air BnB. While I was downstairs, Chris opened a bottle of wine, poured two glasses, and put the ring box out on a table. When I came back upstairs he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was perfect.”

[…] Amanda & Chris met on a blind date in 2014 through mutual friends and unlike those awkward why did I ever agree to do this first dates they really hit it off. Two years later he proposed in a little cottage that Chris found on Air BnB. These two are just such a great pair, Amanda’s positivity and appetite for life along with Chris’ humor and desire to make everyone he talks to feel special make them they type of couple that you feel elevated just by being in their presence. You just can’t help but smile and laugh with them. In fact my cheeks were so sore after shooting this wedding from how much I was smiling, and I wasn’t alone. They were surrounded with the most supportive lively and amazing friends which made this wedding all the more special. Congratulations you two, It was such a privilege to be a part of your wedding day! […]
