Indie Engagement Session at Garden of the Gods
november 11, 2018
If you should know anything about us, it’s this: we LOVE a good story. When we first started talking to Steve and Amanda about possibly being their wedding photographers, we fell in love with their story. They went to high school together, but it wasn’t until after Steve graduated and Amanda was a senior that they really began to be friends. Steve was Amanda’s brothers wrestling coach, and Amanda’s family l-o-v-e-s Steve – so much so, that they convinced her to go out on a date with him! And that, friends, is the story of how they met.
But the story of how Steve proposed is what we really got us in the feels, and it was even featured on How He Asked (no, we didn’t get to photograph it, but it’s SO GOOD)! You see, on their second dating anniversary, they buried a time capsule out in the woods, filled with sentimental trinkets and love letters that they had written to each other. SIX YEARS LATER (all caps necessary), Steve convinced Amanda to go visit the time capsule together. As he was digging, he got down on one knee and said, “there’s something I wrote for you six years ago that I need you to read.” You see, on the back of the letter he had written her, he had told her his plan – to go back to this special place, open the time capsule, and he’d written, “will you marry me?” on the back of his letter.
So. Freaking. Romantic!
And now here we are, about to celebrate their wedding at Deer Creek Ranch, which they both fell in love with the first time they visited. We cannot wait for their wedding in just a few weeks, and we’re so glad we were able to hang out with them for their indie engagement session at Garden of the Gods!
