Rip Van Winkle Engagements: Anna + Forrest

January 26, 2017

Life has a really unique way of bringing people together. For Anna and Forrest, they were brought together because Forrest’s father was Anna’s freshman year professor in college…and at a later Halloween party they connected the dots over this mutual connection.

After the Halloween party, they continued to get to know each other and the rest was history. The day that Forrest received the keys to his house, he proposed as soon as they walked in. He even went as far as to put up their new last name in blocks on the mantle.

After the proposal, he surprised Anna with a gathering of their friends and family members at Tim and Tia’s in River Ranch.

We photographed their engagement session in Louisiana at Rip Van Winkle Gardens. It was a gorgeous day and we had so much fun exploring and documenting their love in the gardens of this venue. And seriously, how fabulous is this pink dress?! Below is a preview of their session:
