How They Met:
“Eric and I met at Elizabethtown College in our senior year. It’s funny because as the saying goes “it happened when we least expected it.” We had both signed up for a bowling class. We realize this seems like a random class, but I needed the extra credits for my major, and Eric was taking it “easy” in his senior year. Bowling wasn’t really my sport as Eric would tell people; however, we first met in class. One night I was out with my friends and we had run into each other, it was that night that he mustered the courage up to talk to me. He truly “bowled” me over and has had my heart ever since.”

“Eric is the most loving, compassionate, and patient person that I have ever met. It’s hard to chose one thing that I love most about him because he encompasses all the qualities of my true better half. I truly love his lightheartedness because he keeps me grounded.”

The Proposal:
“Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and now the day holds a even more special spot in my heart. On October 31, Eric placed the note cards he created on our puppy’s, Willow, collar. As she usually does, she pounced upstairs to our room where she jumped on me to wake me up. As I was petting her, I felt the notecards around her collar. I was taken by surprise. I read the cards quickly because I was curious where this was going to lead me. The last card (or what I thought was the last card) told me to go downstairs. Unfortunately, in Willow’s excitement, she tore the true last note card off that read, “Will you marry me?” Nonetheless, I hastily ran downstairs to find Eric on one knee with a ring in his hands.”

Engagement Session Inspiration:
“Luckily, we had Jaime and Lincoln to help put my jumbled thoughts into great photos! I know I wanted to be outside in the fall foliage. I am a constant pinner on Pinterest, and I was inspired by all the sunset lighting and colors of the fall leaves which I think were captured so beautifully in our photos! Tyler State Park is right down the street from where I grew up so I am glad we could do the engagement photos at a place I hold near to my heart. Not to mention the park is close to our venue!”

Wedding Planning Experience:
“We have started our planning; we are down passed the year mark now! The planning has gone smoothly thus far since we decided to have a longer engagement. We take one task at a time and tackle it before moving onto the next. It has been nice for us because both our moms have been helping us with the planning as well.”

Engagement Session Experience:
“Jaime and Lincoln are absolutely fantastic! Eric and I aren’t the most natural looking people in photographs so we were a bit nervous that we would ruin our own engagement photos, but Jaime and Lincoln made the shoot so much easier for us. They are super personable, and we are so excited to work with them both on the wedding day! The photos they captured were everything we were looking for and more!”

From the Photographer: “When Shannon asked me about shooting a Tyler State Park engagement session, we were super excited! Shannon and Eric also brought along their gorgeous pup, Willow (her eyes are insanely beautiful!). Crisp fall weather, cozy blankets and stunning light were all on our side as we explored the park and all got to know each other! Shannon and Eric are so sweet and easy going – such genuinely great, adorable people! Their session got us super excited for the November wedding next year.”
