First and foremost, I absolutely adore Amanda and just love her fiancé, Mike!! I’ve grown so close to these two and have such a soft spot for the both of them. Amanda won an Instagram giveaway I did in early 2015, and after meeting her for their session, I knew she was my kinda girl! Her personality is as colorful as her wardrobe and her laugh is contagious. She’s sweet as can be and gifts me with the cutest, sweetest things that I just don’t deserve!!
She and I have been eagerly waiting for Mike to pop the question. She joked that he would do it during their session they won with me and I was eager to see if he was going to…but he didn’t and she and I kept in touch over whether they were engaged yet or not, LOL!! Each time she would hire me for a session after that, I’d get on his nerves completely asking when he was going to do it!! Once he did, she sent me a little text with a photo of the ring and I’m pretty sure I squealed and jumped up and down for her!! She LOVES this man and he proposed in the most perfect way with the most perfect ring. Ya’ll..let me tell you about THIS RING! Rose gold, oval diamond, diamonds down the band…its perfection and I almost feel like I need to tell my husband I need a new wedding ring LOL!
These two were so much fun last week during their engagements. They laughed a LOT, which in turn made me laugh and we just had the best time! Amanda brought the cutest props… a hashtag banner for their wedding (#ForeverWright), confetti pops, mugs by Ashley Brooke Designs and a bottle of champagne to POP on the beach and drink together… except… once they took the foil off, they realized it didn’t have a cork, it was a screw on LOL!!!! This moment was hilarious. They were smiling so big, taking the foil off of the champagne bottle and the look on their faces (photo’s below) once they realized it was a screw on was just hysterical. We all lost it and laughed for a good few minutes. Mike of course shook it up anyway and made sure he made champs go everywhere!! I just couldn’t love this session or these two humans anymore than I already do and I can NOT wait for their perfect CNU nuptials next summer! Favorite couple, favorite venue to shoot at…I’m in heaven!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to go on this journey with you two, Amanda and Mike!! I’m so honored!! Health and happiness to you two always, xo!
