She grew up going to Dog Island with her family her entire life. It’s her favorite place on earth. But this particular trip was very different. She wondered if it would be. She hoped. But there was no way to know for sure. As Alyson, Walt, and their best friends enjoyed a vacation together on this little island with no restaurants, no gas stations or stores, they had the time of their lives. On one extra special evening, Walt grabbed her hand and walked her down to the side of the island where you see the best view of the sunset. He had written “Will you marry me?” in the sand and underlined it with shells earlier that day and, as they walked past, Alyson just kept walking right on by. She was soaking in the moment with the love of her life so much that she was blissfully unaware of her surroundings! So Walt turned her around, pointed it out, got down on one knee and said those magic words every girl hopes to hear from the man she adores: Will you marry me?
Of course she said YES! and now they will be getting married this fall! And guess who their super excited wedding photographer is?! ME! Shocker, I know! If their wedding day is even 1/10th as fun as we had together during their engagement session, it’s going to be epic! And I feel 110% confident that is going to be the case.
Alyson and Walt – I’m incredibly thankful our paths have crossed and that you have chosen me to capture this special season of your lives! I hope you love the photos and can’t wait to see you again in a few short months!
