Craig has basically grown up with Hallie, and graduated from high school with her, so we’ve known her for quite some time, and have been able to watch her and Seth’s relationship happen! It’s always fun to document these special times in people’s lives, but it’s even more amazing when you’ve been able to watch them grow up, go through all of the crazy stages of life, and then meet the one that they’re meant to be with. These two are honestly just so sweet, and so perfect together. They both have laid back, kind personalities, so of course it was a breeze to shoot their engagement portraits! Seth lives out in the country surrounded by gorgeous farmland, so we were so excited to use the barns, back roads, and beautiful autumn foliage as the backdrops for their session.
Afterwards, we headed to a super special location to finish their session! We went to a little bay where Hallie and Seth had their first date together, and where he popped the question! We’ve obviously known them for quite a while and gotten to watch a lot of their story play out, but we had so much fun hearing them tell all of the little details about how it happened! Hallie and Seth met at prom years ago, but they didn’t really get to dance together at all, so on their first date Seth made sure they got their first dance! So after spending some time at the bay, they headed back to a pretty field area that he had mowed and surrounded with pretty torches so that they could have an intimate, dancing date! How precious is that?! Then to top that, for his proposal, Seth played guitar and serenaded Hallie as she walked down to meet him through a path lined with torches and pictures with dates documenting their relationship. Then Hallie’s dad brought the ring down to her with a note he’d written with lots of sweet words blessing their engagement. We were practically in tears by the end of the engagement story! The way Seth told us about everything really showed how much time and thought he put into the proposal. He is clearly as head over heels in love with her as she is with him! These two are obviously meant to be together, and we’re so excited to document this awesome journey!
Hallie and Seth, we are so happy for you both, and we had so much fun on your engagement session! You are both wonderful people are clearly completely in love with each other, which makes us so excited for your future together :) It’s obvious that you deserve one another, and we absolutely can’t wait to be there to watch you guys say “I Do” next December!
