Evan and Katie’s golden hour engagement session was the perfect way to end the week. These two cuties love the outdoors and they couldn’t think of any better place to have their session than at Sweetwater Creek State Park in Villa Rica. The fall weather made for a nice cool session. I love the fall season in Georgia because the trees in our state parks are beautifully colored red, yellow, and orange.
Katie and Evan met while working in the Real Estate industry. They worked on the same floor and one day struck up a conversation about music. If I know anything about Evan it’s that he is passionate about music. So naturally they quickly became friends which later on blossomed into a relationship. Both of them are driven, but don’t take life too seriously. They love to have fun, go on adventures together, and spend time with their friends and family.
Their engagement story is so sweet. Evan and Katie went on a trip to San Francisco, California for Katie’s 30th birthday. Katie suspected that Evan would propose during their trip but he was able to convince her otherwise. While in Monterey Evan knew that he would propose that day but had no idea where to do it. He wanted the proposal location to be special and different, not crowded with tourists.
Evan made reservations for dinner at their hotel as a last resort proposal location. However, after realizing that the sunset wasn’t going to be visible from the restaurant he started to get discouraged. Luckily a member of the hotel staff suggested that they go to a nearby beach for the best view of the sunset.
As soon as they arrived at the beach Evan knew that it was the perfect location to propose. It was not only a beautiful view but they had that part of the beach all to themselves. Evan asked Katie to marry him and she was shocked! BEST SURPRISE EVER! Katie of course said yes with excitement and they spent the rest of the evening watching the sunset and celebrating over dinner.
Evan and I have been good friends for almost ten years now. I’ve seen him go through life’s ups and downs and all of the in between. After spending time with Evan and Katie I know how perfect they are for each other. They are partners in their relationship, which is so important. They love and admire each other so much. Evan and Katie inspire each other to be better – better as humans, better at their careers, and better for each other.
Evan told me one day that he wanted to be a better person for Katie and that made me so happy to hear. I could see it in his eyes that he meant every word. He has grown so much over these past few years and all of these qualities of their relationship make for a great start to their marriage.
Evan and Katie are getting married in March of 2020 at Little River Farms in Milton. I can’t wait to witness these two getting married. Katie and Evan, I wish you both so much happiness and so many adventures together. May your marriage be strong and grow with each passing year. Cheers to your next adventure together!
