I was in Charlotte, North Carolina for a wedding & got a message from Katelyn excited & asking if I had time for an engagement session while I was home. Thinking she was asking for someone else, I soon found out that Tyler has just popped the question & they WERE ENGAGED!! This was the best news & I am so glad it worked out to get the chance to photograph these two.
I have known Katelyn or Shiffy since high school & have gotten the chance to catch up over the years through a few friends wedding & it is always such an excitement getting to see each other. Knowing one day she would get her chance to be the bride, I could not picture her with a better guy than Tyler!
Tyler & Katelyn met through mutual friends at spontaneous trip to the beach. Little did they know they would meet & not stop talking after their day on the beach. They went to see the Polar Bears at the Asheboro Zoo for their first date & had the best time even though it was too hot to even see them! This was just the start of their memories together.
This past weekend Tyler planned a weekend getaway to Blowing Rock, North Carolina where they spent the weekend exploring the town. On Saturday evening they make the tip to see THE Blowing Rock & after venturing out to one of platforms. There Tyler asked Katelyn to be his WIFE! I am so excited for them & to be a part of their journey!
For their engagement session, I met Tyler & Katelyn at her Grandfathers home on the Lake. It was so bitter sweet coming back to the place Katelyn has so many memories as a kid. They recently decided to sell the place so im so glad we were able to document this special season of life for them here!!!
It was such an honor photographing these two! If you want to see another engagement session, be sure to check out Danny & Sammi Jo’s uptown Charlotte engagement session!
