This Grandfather Mountain engagement session has been on my bucket list for quite some time now. I mentioned the idea of a mountain top engagement session to several couples in the spring and summer of 2018. I quickly learned this dream of mine wasn’t high on many couples list of engagement photo ideas. That was until I met Katie.

Engagement at Grandfather Mountain

As is the case with many of my clients in Charlotte, I met with Katie at the Charlotte City Club for her wedding consultation. We discussed the details of her wedding day, formulated a timeline and came to an agreement. Our follow up conversations were all about the engagement session. I prefer to plan portrait sessions based on a theme. I threw the idea of photographing in the mountains by Katie. She LOVED it. Let’s just say I was really, really excited about it!

I met Paul for the first time when we arrived for the shoot. He’s a fellow U.S. Marine and most importantly a brother in Christ. Those are two good anchors to get acquainted from.

The pursuit of Christ is how Paul and Katie met. It was during a “Power & Love” conference held by Todd White when these two met. They had both responded to a call from Todd asking for people who are comfortable approaching and praying for people in the community. While these two were doing the Lord’s work, the Lord was bringing them together.

How did you know your partner was the one?

When we talked on the phone those first few days for hours, hearing his heart and already knowing I was attracted made me believe he was the one. I even hinted “he’s the one” to my parents that first week or so. Paul said he also knew when hearing we both had the same solid foundation in Christ and it was the first time in his life that he felt giddy about anyone. What kept us continuing to believe “this is the one” is our willingness to adjust and grow in love.

Tell us about your proposal:

Paul proposed to me at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. We were with his parents, so I didn’t think anything of it when we went. I thought it was really about taking his mom there, though we had never been ourselves.

Why did you choose Grandfather Mountain for your engagement session location?

The artwork of God has always the most beautiful scenery to me. I wanted the scene to focus on that beauty, not just of us, but of God’s majestic creation which includes us!

Tell us all about the ring:

I love scrollwork and this ring has beautiful “hidden” details underneath that looks like royalty. I love it!
