Allison and Andy first met at Apple Annie's. Allison was hanging out with a friend when she saw Andy across the room. He was tall and handsome! She introduced herself to him which lead to a first date. Allison drove out to Andy's family farm where they rode around until they ended up at a pond. They opened the sunroof, laid back their chairs and listened to music. They sat in his truck watched the stars and talked for hours!
I love getting to know my couples! One of my favorite questions to ask them is what they love about each other... Here is what Andy had to say about Allison!
Andy said that Allison is the perfect person for him. He honestly loves, and adores everything about her. It may have taken him 30 plus years to find her but it was more then worth the wait! He loves the goofy times they share. The way she smiles at him when he walks into the room. He loves the feeling he gets when he is holding her in his arms, and the way she stands up for him even when he may be wrong. During rough times she never turns her back on him. She is always down for a spontaneous road trip, and is always willing to try new things. He loves how dedicated she is to her career, and puts other peoples needs before her own. She is honestly the most loving and caring person he knows. He loves her just the way she is and would not change her for the world!
Allison said that Andy is the most hard working, talented, loving man she has ever known. She loves the way he is constantly searching for ways to improve their life together. He is constantly planning things such as home improvements, road trips, or just spending time alone. Andy is neat, clean and organized. Allison said she is not but he loves her for her and wants to keep her around for a lifetime! He always finds ways to spoil her and to let her know he is always thinking of her. She loves the way he cares for his family. Andy has a tough exterior but, he loves and loves hard. She loves that he puts up with and knows how to handle her on her longest and sassiest days. He is driven and works hard. Those characteristics helped her through the toughest days of Nursing school and starting her career. He supports her one hundred percent in everything she does! He has treated her family just like his own. At first their relationship was not super solid, until they realized that they would fight through whatever life throws at them together. He makes her a better person. She is excited for a life long marriage with many memories. They are imperfectly perfect together!
Andy planned the perfect proposal! He planned a trip to Gatlinburg and the Biltmore because Allison dreamed of going during Christmas to see all the decorations and lights. They first went to Gatlinburg and enjoyed a couple of days touring around the town. Then they went to the Biltmore where they were grateful to tour the house because it was 27 degrees outside. They went outside to tour the lights and he spent an ABNORMALLY long time looking for the perfect spot for them to take a picture. His parents were there and they were getting ready to take their picture when Andy dropped down on one knee to propose. Allison was completely surprised! She immediately said yes to forever with Andy!
I had a great time doing their engagement session! Their love for each really shines through in every photograph. I can hardly wait until I get to shoot their best day ever in March! These two are pure magic in front of my camera, and I enjoyed every second!
