Meet Blake and Alyssa..
Alyssa is my cousin-in-law so I was so excited when she contacted me to do some engagement photos for her and her new fiance! She’s a super fun kindergarten teacher with a hilarious sense of humor and great style. Of course, I love ALL of Matt’s family, but Alyssa is one of those people you look forward to being around because she’s just plain fun! She has a french bulldog named Ellie who she absolutely adores and Blake is totally ok with that because he has two of his own dogs that he loves just as much! I hadn’t met Blake at any of the family get-togethers, so I was excited to see what kind of guy Alyssa had chosen to spend the rest of her life with. Though Blake was a little more reserved at the beginning (who isn’t nervous about meeting someone for the first time and also having them take your pictures?!), by the end of the session he had loosened up, cracked some jokes, and I could totally see why Blake won Alyssa’s heart :)
They have known each other since high school, but only began dating last year. Having known each other for years, it didn’t take Blake very much time to figure out Alyssa was the girl he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. So, one day, he drove over to her school, got down on one knee, and proposed in front of her entire kindergarten class! How cute is that?!
Alyssa and Blake, thank you so much for letting me capture this special time in your lives! I wish you two the best and can’t wait to go on our double date!
