Ah, this couple is just too cute for words! We totally love their beach engagement shoot because they were all smiles and sweetness. And fun fact guys, this is the same beach where our groom-to-be proposed! If you need another reason to love this album, that should add-up.
What is your story as a couple, how did you meet & fall in love?
JJ and I met when we were students at Duke University. We had known each other through mutual friends freshman year, but it was sophomore year when we started seeing more of each other. He asked me to be his girlfriend and the rest is history!
What makes the two of you a perfect match?
He’s my best friend. He’s the person I want to tell everything to the moment it happens. He’s also the most loyal person, and I know he’s always there to support me.
How did he (or you) propose?
It was SUCH a surprise. We planned to go visit my parents on Cape Cod for a fun summer weekend. We had talked about going to lunch at our favorite spot, then hitting up the beach. The actual day was overcast, but JJ was pretty insistent that we go anyway. We sat on the beach for a while just reading, then JJ suggested a walk. When we got to the end of the beach, he got down on one knee and popped the question. I just remember being so incredibly happy. We headed back to my parents house, where unbeknownst to me our immediate family was there waiting. We celebrated with the family, and I went upstairs to get ready for dinner. When I came back downstairs, I was shocked to see all of my friends and neighbors, many of which made the trip to the cape just to celebrate with us! I finally found out that JJ had been planning the triple surprise for 3 months, and all of my family and friends were in on it. Best surprise ever.
How long was the planning process? Did you think it was enough time?
We’re in the planning stages now. I’m finishing veterinary school, and JJ is starting medical school, so it’s been tough to fit in planning! I’m sure it will all come together perfectly.
What would you say, the overall story for this album?
We wanted to do our engagement pictures actually where we got engaged. It’s our favorite beach on the Cape and were going to have special memories there forever.
