Mike and Jess are some of our friends from church here in Lafayette! Luke and I really love them and have so enjoyed watching their relationship grow over the years. When Mike came to me and said he was buying the ring and preparing to propose to Jessica, I was ecstatic. I knew they both had been patiently waiting for this season, and Jess was going to be so shocked and surprised! Long story short, Mike proposed in Youngsville, LA on a piece of property lined with tea light candles with a bench at the end. He read her a card telling her how much he loved her and how excited he was for their future, then got down on one knee and took Jessica's breath away!
We planned to split up their engagement session to do both nature and urban styles, so this is only part one of what's to come! At last minute we decided to go out to Lake Martin for this session to shoot near the water, and I am so happy that we did. It was a decision based on the weather, but I have a feeling it was the spot we were supposed to pick all along!! I had so much fun during our time together and I can't wait for October--their big day!!
