Kristen has a love for activity, fun..and a fear of missing out (#fomo)! So after a little over five years of dating her love Steve, he didn’t have to twist her arm the night he asked if she’d like to “go out with friends!”
On the way, they stopped at his dad’s house. Steve hid the ring there in advance and had intentions of proposing in the courtyard!
But just as they were preparing to walk out the door, Steve quickly guided her into the courtyard without explanation. Little did she know he was planning to start the rest of their lives together in that moment. He knelt down on one knee in the courtyard of his dad’s home and there, he asked her to be his wife! <3
In addition to celebrating with family, Kristen and Steve loved sharing the proposal with so many of their friends in person that weekend!
For their engagement session, we spent the afternoon photographing at Kristen’s dad’s house in Lafayette. It was a lovely day, and I really enjoyed getting to know these two. They’re both SO chill and I could tell instantly how they just enjoy having fun together! They laugh … A LOT…and take things in stride.
I’m so excited already for Kristen’s bridals and the opportunity to document their wedding day! :) Below is a preview of their session:
It was Mother’s Day in New Orleans…but it was also the day Davis would propose. Together they looked for rings, even narrowed it down to Lien’s favorite two. But they agreed a surprise would be fun. So, Davis would choose and proposal when he was ready.
Later than evening (not even a full 24 hours later) Lien found out that Davis was planning that surprise a little sooner than she’d thought! Because somehow he’d managed to purchase her ring…and PROPOSED that evening … accompanied by her favorites (toast, scrambled eggs, and bacon)! <3
I photographed Lien + Davis’s engagements on the most BEAUTIFUL day at Afton Villa! It was CRAZY gorgeous! All the azaleas were in bloom, there were tulips and wisteria everywhere!!! I’ve never seen the gardens look so luxurious and filled with SO much COLOR!
After spending the first several moments swooning over the gardens, we had a blast shooting their engagements!!! They even finished the session with a LOVELY picnic (designed and styled by Lien!) I know they’ve been seriously anticipating these images so I won’t wait another moment to share!
