Being from Louisville is was only right we take Morgan and Tyler’s engagement photos in that city. Morgan suggested Locust Grove, a hstoric plantation. Not only was it beautiful it was one of the very placed Louis and Clark celebrated the return from their trip to the Pacific!But on this chilly morning, the grounds served as a beautiful country backdrop. Morgan’s red hair glistened in the morning sun. Tyler did a great job at looking manly- as all good fiances should:) AUgust will be here before you know it and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding!! Congratulations!
Morgan’s story on how she and Tyler met:
We were classmates for quite some time before we started dating. It was the winter break of 2009 when Tyler made his first move. Tyler started messaging me on Facebook. I always thought he was a nice guy, but he sat on the other side of the room in class, so we never really talked all that much. Several facebook chats led to him getting my phone number, thus leading to the consistent nightly phone calls. Tyler finally got the nerve to ask me on a date on MLK weekend. He had asked me to go to a concert with him at the KY Center for the Arts. It was the best, most perfect first date I had been on….and then you could just say the rest is history!
I had photographed a wedding in Versailles over a year ago for a beautiful young couple- Samantha “Sam” and Aaron. Kelsey happened to be friends with Sam but couldn’t make it to her wedding. Now that Kelsey is getting married, our paths have crossed! Kelsey found me through Sam, of course. Many thanks to my former clients for referring me. It’s so much fun to photograph in circles:)
Kelsey and Tyler are planning a wonderful Sunday afternoon August wedding. Her colors are yellow and gray so Kelsey decided to bring flowers to incorporate into her and Tyler’s engagement photographs. We met in Danville for the shoot- it was somewhat halfway between us. Neither one of us were too familiar with Danville so we decided to start at Center College. What a cool town! It’s too bad we didnt’ have hours and hours of time. There are a lot of interesting backgrounds! It was a lovely- and chilly- evening of fun and photographs!
I asked Kelsey for a few words on how she and Tyler met and how he proposed:
The second semester of my freshman year of college I was in the cafeteria for lunch and I saw Tyler for the first time and couldn’t get over how cute I thought he was; I told my girlfriends at lunch that day that I was going to date that guy…..they of course didn’t take me seriously. Two days later I met him on the track while he was doing conditioning for basketball and I was jogging. From the minute we met I knew there was more to him than good looks and we coincidentally ended up sitting next to each other at dinner that night and afterwards we stood outside talking for hours. The rest is history, we just instantly connected and knew we had both found someone really special and we didn’t want to live our lives without one another.
I’ll admit our engagement is definitely not a story book proposal……Tyler had my engagement ring custom made and with that came some set backs so his big proposal plan in the mountains of Gatlinburg didn’t happen (we went to Gatlinburg but the ring wasn’t done). Tyler finally got the ring the morning we were set to leave for Georgia to celebrate Christmas with his family. Tyler really wanted to propose while we were in Georgia so his grandma could see the ring because he had my ring made out of his grandma and grandpa’s wedding set’s so it was important to him that his grandma get to see the ring that her wedding band had created. This left Tyler with no time to plan a proposal so he was scrambling for ideas….Tyler asked me to multiple times to go to these different places (with the intent of proposing) but I never wanted to (obviously I didn’t know he wanted to propose!). Finally he just realized he had to propose because as he put it “this ring is burning a hole in my pocket”. So at his grandma’s house in Atlanta, Georgia he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him; although I will admit I was in such shock because of the spontaneity of the proposal that I really don’t remember most of the proposal although I do know I said “yes!”.
