We meet again, lovely blog readers!
I photographed William and Amanda at McKelligon Canyon and Downtown El Paso. This soon-to-be wedded couple will be getting married on March 18th, 2017! And I am so excited to be photographing their big big day in Fort Knox, Kentucky at Prichard Chapel! Squee!!
These two lovebirds met while attending Military Police school at Fort Leonard Wood. Amanda said “Our stories vary but they all come back to one significant line, ‘Girl don’t you know if I had green eyes (Amanda’s), then I’d be married by now?'” They started dating and fell in love and here we are today!
Now let me tell you their proposal story! Oh Em Gee!! I was in tears! I’ll give you a minute to grab tissues… … …
Ready? Here it is! Amanda filled me in “Christmas Day, he had planned the whole idea around my engagement ring which is called the Past, Present and Future ring. He made sure everyone was there (both our families) and then had three bags. The first bag was labeled the past and referenced the first time we hung out, we went running. I had lime green shoes on and it’s on of my favorite colors so he got me a lime green hoodie. The next bag was labeled the present and it had a black dress he picked out, how we’ve been dating and how we sometimes like to dress up. The last bag had a TON of tissue paper inside of it and at the bottom an empty ring box. I turned around and he was on one knee, the bag was labeled future”
Family is definitely important to Amanda and Will and one thing they’re most excited about is sharing their joy with family and friends… and then there’s cake and wine of course! Amanda’s Aunt Deondra at Dee’s Catering and her uncle Kevin is DJing making it very much a family affair! The reception will be held at the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown.
I know it’s going to be a gorgeous wedding!
Future wedding details aside, let’s get to the present: Amanda and Will’s engagement session! These two are real naturals in front of the camera. Their good looks, fabulous outfit choices, a sublime location and their genuine love for each other made this photo shoot a truly enjoyable experience!
