Kristyn & Kevin {engaged}

“We need a chick who can sing for our band to compete in the Greek Sing Competition” Kristyn’s friend said to her on the phone one day during her sophomore year of college.  After agreeing to help, she showed up for practice and there was Kevin.  His ears gauged, lip pierced, hair long and adorning a few tattoos.  She was totally intimidated by his bad boy persona, but she noticed herself throughout the weeks looking forward to going to practices, and staying late after them to sit and talk with Kevin about life.  It was just so easy with him, and before she knew it she’d fallen hard.  He was very upfront about the way he felt about her and let her know “I know we are supposed to be together, but I will go on with my life and whenever you are ready let me know.”  The confidence he had in their future was intoxicating.  He did go on with his life, and she with her’s, but he still consumed her thoughts.  She knew that whenever she was ready to be with the one person she was meant to spend forever with, all she had to do was walk down the block to him.  And one day she did, and never looked back.

3 and a half years later they’d graduated, started their careers, started grad school, bought a dog, and moved in together – and in all that hustle and bustle they realized they hadn’t spent any time together in months.  So they planned a weekend getaway in Hermann MO.  The weekend came and they spent the day hiking, touring a brewery, and just enjoying the day.  They came back to their room to get ready for dinner, and as he always did to keep them on time – he tapped on the door as she put on her mascara and told her to hurry or they’d be late.  She took one last glance in the mirror and opened the door expecting Kevin to have his keys in hand hurrying her along, but instead she heard music – their favorite song to be exact – the one they first danced to in college that brought them back to that time every time they heard it.  He gently brought her out onto the balcony of their room and the warm golden sunset was just beginning to fade off into the horizon.  She can’t recall exactly what Kevin said, but has the fact that it was the most amazing moment of her life memorized.  He began to kneel down on one knee, but before his knee could even hit the ground she pulled him back up and muffled “of corse” as she cried on his shoulder.  Needless to say they did not make their reservation on time, but when you are planning your forever – time stands still.
The couple will be married next May in front of their family & friends.  Enjoy a few of their photos from their awesome engagement session!!
