Greetings sweet readers,
I look at a lot of photos. Really. But even with the saturation, sometimes an engagement session seems to be more than that to me. It becomes a portrayal of a couple’s love to cherish. Well let me just say that I am a huge fan of the husband/wife duo behind Troy Grover Photographers. I am hooked after snooping all the loveliness on their blog and website. Adryon and Luke have an amazing connection that really came through in these photos. The bride-to-be has a killer head of hair and vocal chops to match, Luke is obviously her biggest fan. Sigh… Check her out here, how is she not famous?!
Here is a supper cute look into Adryon and Luke’s engagement story;
A: I was suspecting something. He kinda left a trail.
L: I was nervous! Jeeze.
A: So we went on a gondola ride around Naples Island…
L: I knew she liked Christmas lights and all that. We had been talking about it, so we seized the opportunity. Packed up the champagne and took an hour ride.
A: He was cool as ever on the boat. I was more nervous than he was.
L: I couldn’t do it on the boat. Not in front of the gondolier. No way.
A: So we docked, packed up the car, and he says -
L: Let’s take a walk.
A: To the beach? [[crazed expression on my face]] (He doesn’t particularly care for the ocean)
L: Yes [[swiftly places ring box in his coat - LIKE A NINJA]]
A: We walked a little ways towards the shore, stopping about halfway. He started reciting all the beautiful things about our relationship. And suddenly he wasn’t holding me anymore. I turned around and he had taken a knee.
L: Adryon, I want you to marry me.
A: I freaked out. For, like, a whole minute.
L: I got nervous. My thought was, “what is wrong with this woman?”
A: Of course I said “Of course!”
