Who would have thought a hairstyle would kick start a relationship? In this case, that’s exactly what happened!! Karly and Alex met while in college. They shared a biology class. On the first day of class, Alex had “huge, curly hair”. The next day, Karly noticed that all of his curly hair was gone. This is where their life together started. Their conversation about Alex’s hair! For the next year, they would run into each other around campus and have small chat. Finally the day came when he asked for her number. This was the beginning of the end of their single life and the start of their lives together.
Every proposal is amazing, but the unplanned ones are sometimes the best. Alex knew he would be asking Karly to marry him. He already had the ring. He just hadn’t planned exactly how he wanted to as the big question yet. They had returned home from spending Christmas with their families and were just hanging out on the couch. He asked her how she saw him proposing to her. She responded by saying that he could wrap a blade of grass around her finger for all she cared. At that moment, he went away for a minute. When he returned, he told Karly to get up for a minute. After a few minutes of persuading her to get up, she finally did. Alex got down on his knee in front of the Christmas tree and asked Karly to spend the rest of her life with him. Before he could start asking, she was already saying yes. Karly described the moment as “soft, intimate, and just us”. This was the perfect proposal for them.
For their engagement session, Karly and Alex wanted something special. I chose Snoopers Rock in Chattanooga, TN. This location is beautiful and is the perfect location for any kind of session. With the mountains and the Tennessee River Gorge in the background, you can’t find a much better spot. This was our first time meeting and right away I could see what a great connection the two of them have. The session was full of giggles and kisses. They were great at both!! I can’t wait for their wedding in September at one of my favorite venues, The Venue at Lilly Lous in Trenton, GA.
Karly and Alex, the next couple months will be stressful and busy while you’re planning your wedding day. Don’t let those stresses interfere with your everyday relationship. Continue to love each other and laugh through any issues that may arise in your wedding planning. You are precious together and I can’t wait for your special day!
