Amanda and Charlie had warm, perfect weather in December and a lovely sunset on Lake Martin in Lafayette, Louisiana for their engagement shoot. This is one of the most gorgeous engagements I’ve seen! I just love their canoe photos with the golden beams of light and their creative display on the Scrabble board! This sweet couple is looking forward to being married this spring in New Orleans in Jackson Square, in front of St. Louis Cathedral, with the reception a few blocks away at the House of Blues. They’ll end the evening with their very own second line band, dancing through the streets of the French Quarter. I wish them the very best! Read below for their story.
How They Met:
It was a hot summer night in Jasper, Indiana—Population 15,000. Amanda was in town from Pittsburgh, PA visiting her father’s hometown for the annual Strassenfest celebration–a festival of German food, music and of course beer. In the Bier Garden with her friend and cousin, Amanda caught, out of the corner of her eye, a man. Not just any man. This man was handsome. This man was amazing. This man was…wearing a cape…and dancing like an idiot. She knew right away that this was the man for her. After a year of talking and texting and accumulation of numerous frequent flier miles, Amanda ultimately moved down to Louisiana to be with Charlie. A few months later they were engaged.
