When Katelyn asked if I would photograph their engagement session at the iconic Boone Hall Plantation I nearly died!! I said you have got to be kidding me! Little did I know, she was dead serious. Let me just say, this location is one of the most magical places I have ever been to. Boone Hall Plantation was one of the locations where the film “The Notebook” took place. Well known actors, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were also married there. This particular engagement session was very special to me, because the groom to be Lin, is my cousin. I was honored when he and his fiance chose me as their photographer. The love these two share for one another is absolutely unconditional. I am so happy for them and I hope you guys enjoy these precious moments!
I must start off by saying, I have never been a part of something so special ever in my life. Every time my mind flashes back to this day, I can’t help but describing it as a fairytale.
This was the day Tremain asked his gorgeous girlfriend, Shavone, to be his wife at the exquisite Biltmore Estate.
The back story of these two is quite interesting….Shavone would not give Tremain the time of day. Shavone was trying to ignore and push Tremain further and further away. Tremain finally got the hint and prayed to God that if this woman was meant to be then God would allow them to be together. A few months passed, and out of nowhere Shavone began calling Tremain and asking him on dates. She even asked him to be her boyfriend! The rest is history…
After I captured the unforgettable proposal, Tremain surprised his future wife with a mini makeover and engagement portraits! We headed back to the hotel for makeup by the talented Kiani Love and a wardrobe change.
Just before I thought this day couldn’t get any better, it did! Shavone and Tremain are expecting!! Before they traveled to Asheville, they went to Gigi’s Cupcakes and gave them the envelope that contained the gender of their baby. They bit into the cupcake and found out they were having a boy! Of course I had to capture that to end a magical, emotional, life changing, day.
