\\ Congratulations Nikole & Taylor! //

Last month, I did a photo contest for an engagement session giveaway. After receiving various entries from wonderful couples, I decided to go with Nikole and Taylor. She had so many beautiful stories on how they started dating and how he popped the question. I just couldn't resist.

She told me about their tradition to go to the Christmas lights show in Clearbrook, VA. They walked through the beautiful show and stood before an arrangement called "Five Golden Rings". Taylor got down on one knee and said, "We've been together five years and I don't have five golden rings, but will this one do". I mean, seriously! How can you say "no" to that?! It totally blew me away as the hopeless romantic that I am. 

Nikole decided that it would be best to wait until it was spring, that way the weather would be perfect. So, last Saturday was the date we arranged for after a week of wonderfully warm weather. Low and behold, Saturday was the COLDEST day that we've had in weeks. It was about 23 degrees and the wind chill made it feel like it was in the single digits - BUT we carried on. All in all, I captured some beautiful shots of their beautiful relationship. It was great working with them because they were so well organized and followed directions very well. Their love was natural and it truly showed. I can't wait until they get married and I'm so happy for them.

Congratulations again!! <3
