Loved this casual Kentucky engagement session for so many reasons. Let's talk a bit about Emily + Eric first. Emily and Eric met through a mutual friend in a drive way. Romantic? Maybe not so much, but the proposal? Oh yeah, that was romantic and well thought out:
Emily's sister told her that she got tickets to a winery. So Eric and her got all dressed up and headed to her sisters house to pick up her brother in law. When they arrived Emily noticed lots of cars that belonged to her family and friends. Eric told her they were all around back. Emily knew something was up, but wasn't entirely sure what that may be. All the guests yelled "surprise" and emily asked what they were celebrating. The clever response was that it was a belated college graduation party.
Even that alone would be an awesome day, but little did she know about a half hour into the party her sister said she had a present for her. Emily took the card her sister presented and read in her boyfriends handwriting "here are some roses to show you how much I care about you." When Emily looked up her, soon to be fiancee was walking towards her with a dozen pink roses. Eric handed her the roses with a beautiful diamond ring tied on (you'll see that beauty below). Eric took the ring off and got down on one knee in front of all the friends and family there and asked her to marry him. Romantic, right?
When thinking of places to do their engagement session Eric had thought of a friends homestead that was up the road a little ways from their hometown in Alexandria, Kentucky. This place screams KENTUCKY. Which is fitting in the fact that they are both extreme UK Wildcats fans. (which makes me love them even more)
We had a stunning evening to work with and an awesome horse that photobombed us every chance he got, but nothing was more awesome than Eric making Emily laugh at the drop of a hat. They were absolutely comfortable with each other and cracking jokes the whole time. Check out that ring, told you it was gorgeous. Emily is going to make one GORGEOUS bride. I cannot wait to shoot their wedding this June. It's going to be one beautiful day.
