For 8 months he asked her out, and for 8 months all he got was “no”……

Since they are in the same chiropractic program at Life University, Shelby and Mike would see each other all the time and, interestingly enough, neither of them wanted to date another chiropractor! But one day, they were paired up to do some practicing on each other and when Mike took her head in his hands and looked in Shelby’s stunningly gorgeous eyes, it was all over. When I asked Mike how he was able to keep asking her out after 8 months of rejection, his reply was “I was DETERMINED for her to love me!” Their love story is straight out of a Nicholas Sparks novel – right?! How romantic!

Mike’s determination paid off and eventually Shelby began to notice what an awesome guy he was and her heart towards him changed. Finally, after 8 months of asking, her “no” turned into a “yes” and they started dating! One day down the road, as she was sitting out on his balcony, enjoying some coffee and the Atlanta skyline views, she was intrigued by an article on Facebook discussing “10 signs you’ve found the right man to marry”. Mike walked out, asked what she was reading, and she didn’t shy away from sharing it with him! Since he was already planning on popping the question soon, as this moment on the balcony became more and more unexpectedly magical, he decided to strike while the iron was hot and proposed right then and there!

Now they will be getting married at this incredibly beautiful mountaintop wedding venue you’ll see pictured here in their engagement photos and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the honor of photographing it for them! Enjoy the photos!
