Kimberly and Russ’s engagement session at Nottoway Plantation

We’re excited to share Kimberly and Russ’s engagement session from Nottoway Plantation!  Last year, we photographed Russ’s sister’s wedding.  It’s always great to see familiar faces and celebrate with old friends again!   Look for Kimberly’s amazing bridal session and the gorgeous wedding soon!

Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details!

A. Last time we had talked about marriage was over a year ago so I didn’t know what was coming. One of the first big events when we started dating was going to all the endymion functions. His mom had passed away from cancer the year before and riding in the parade with his whole family was like a bonding experience for them and gave them something happy and fun to look forward to and get their mind off of it. I had never been to a mardi gras ball even though im from here so it was very exciting. His dad ended up being randomly picked as king of endymion one year. so this was really just a fun and great time of year for us and his family. His sister, Ashley Russo, also met her fiancé here. His family really thinks that all the good events happening at endymion was sort of like his mom’s way of looking after them. He proposed after riding in the endymion parade at the ball in the superdome with all of our friends and his family plus my little sister around.

Rachel and Blake’s engagement session in Kisatchie National Forest

We are so excited for these two!   Blake and his family are personal friends of ours, we’ve known them for a long time.  The Tisons are a blessing to us and everyone that knows them.   Long time followers may remember Blake’s sister’s wedding a few years back (Meagan and Ben)- shot by Heather.  Heather will also be shooting Blake’s wedding later this year.

  • Q. How did you meet and how long have you been together ?
    A. We met in 7th grade at Country Day. We began dating our junior year of high school. 7 years laters, still those same high school sweethearts.
    Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details! 
    A. Rachel is a very quiet, keep to herself type of person. She would not appreciate a big to do, or flamboyant production of an engagement. So on the 1st saturday of the new year, Jan. 3rd, I went over to her house and asked her if she would like to grab something to eat. She said yes and began to go get ready. As she was sitting at her vanity, putting on her makeup, I strolled into her room while making small talk(box in hand). While waiting on the moment to arise, and for the nerves to pass, I stood by her bed. She turns, looks at me, then turns back to herself in the mirror. As she turns back to the mirror, I slip down by her side and drop to one knee. Then, she faces me, with a confused look about her, without noticing the ring in hand. Quickly, she turns back to the mirror and continues to apply her blush to her cheeks. Primping herself for the days events, oblivious to the fact that she is being proposed to. Next, I say to her “Uhhh…Rachel”, as I hold the ring higher. She wheeled around to see her future sitting there. I give my spill of wanting to spend the rest of my life with her. The whole time she’s getting louder saying, “Blake”, “BLAke”, “BLAKE!”. As I placed the ring on her finger she began to cry. She never once said yes. Still to this day, I’m not sure if I’m engaged or not. I may have just gotten robbed, but we are moving forward with wedding plans.
    Q. Favorite things to do together.
    A. Travel and road trip it! 
    We are big foodies. Eating somewhere new and rarely repeating. 
    Love to build, create, and restore a plethora of objects. Especially furniture. 
    Major concert goers. 
    We love a good live sporting event. 
    Spending our hard earned money shopping. 
    Definite movie buffs. Regardless of reviews, we’ll see it. 
    Lazy days on the couch with our puppies are always welcome. 
    Last but not least, ministry. We love to help those around us in anyway possible.

As you can tell, this is one special couple.  We can’t wait to see where life takes the, and we are thrilled to be part of their very first chapter as husband and wife.

Enjoy their beautiful engagements taken in the heart of Kisatchie National Forest
