Today, I'm featuring the first of two blog posts I'll be doing this week on this adorable Louisiana based couple, Kathryn and Marcus. First, I have their engagement shoot to share, and then tomorrow, I'll share their GORGEOUS Southern wedding with you all. But first things first, I want to thank their fabulous photographer, Catherine Guidry for being kind enough to share both photography sessions with me. For today, she also shared Kathryn and Marcus' proposal story to go along with this classic outdoor engagement shoot.
"The day before Katie's birthday, Marcus gave his jeweler a call. He asked that he meet Marcus in Lafayette with Katie's ring, as he had intentions of surprising her for her birthday. The morning of her birthday, Katie stood in front of the mirror fussing over her outfit. She and Marcus were getting ready to go to breakfast at Cafe Des Amis with their parents, when Marcus called her in the other room. He told her he had something that would go well with her outfit... There, in that moment, he extended the gorgeous solitaire out to her, and asked Katie to be his wife."
"Katie and Marcus have the type of love that grabs you by the arm and steals your attention. They have a love that is SO true and so stinkin' sweet that I could not STOP photographing their adorableness. We spent the afternoon at Magnolia Ridge and literally, it was over before it started. They truly made shooting a breeze, as their love is so playful and their interactions so genuine. They did such a wonderful job of planning ahead: everything from their outfits, to the location and few accessories, it truly made the shoot so beautiful!"
