Erika and Max's Summer Engagement Pictures
It was a cloudy Summer day at The Knoxville Botanical Gardens for engagement pictures. Erika and Max are a happy go lucky couple, full of smiles! We were only with them for one session, but we felt that we had known them both for years. They are so easy going, full of laughs, love, compassion, ambition, and goals.
The two attended different high schools and met by chance at a University of Tennessee College fair. They both had big dreams of attending The University of Tennessee, but fate had a different plan. Max received an appointment to the United States Naval Academy and Erika received a scholarship to attend ETSU. They dated long distance for four years and cherished each moment they got to spend together.
Erika says, "The best day of my life was the day Max proposed in Annapolis, MD!" Max had just graduated from the academy and was about to change his rank to ensign in the U.S. Navy, when he turned around and with his new cover, shoulders boards, and rank he was holding a beautiful diamond ring. Despite all the air horns, crowd yelling, and shouting all Erika could hear was Max saying, "Will you marry me?"
Erika and Max set their date in October at Hunter Valley Farm-Pavilion. Erika is going to look so beautiful in a White Lace and Promises wedding dress. We look forward to working with Ogle Entertainment! As always, we are super excited to photograph this lovely couple!
