Adventurous engagement session at Devil’s Lake State Park!
Hello friends, it’s Fri-YAY! And it’s a holiday weekend! I have a beautiful, laughter-packed engagement session for you from Zeth & Alyssa’s fun and adventurous engagement session!
I photographed these sweet teachers at Devil’s Lake State Park on an almost-rainy day (apparently, the Engel’s have a history of rain-filled events, but their sweet dispositions are sunshiny enough! ;) )
(Do you see these massive rocks behind them?? Call me skittish, but I’m definitely not as adventurous as these two! Zeth told me that he and his brother used to race up and down this steep, rocky, scary pile of rocks and I felt terrified for them! LOL! My kids haven’t exhausted my fear gauge yet, obviously!)
Their love story? It all started with a spark…literally. A normal day in welding class heated up when she accidentally lit his shirt on fire! They’ve been “partners in crime” ever since! They switched into the same crazy college major and discovered they had more in common than they thought. Through all the coffee (him), sweet snacks (her), and many lesson plan sessions, they graduated and had to go their separate ways.
In the full swing of this ‘adulting’ thing, they promised to keep in touch, and planned weekend adventures as retreats to each other. They hiked nature trails, ran triathlons and more, which typically ended over beers & vows to walk more next year.
And FINALLY (after a few subtle hints) they started officially dating. Friends became partners, admiration turned to love, and a 7:00am hike turned into “Will you marry me?” (as eager family hiding in the foliage looked on!).
Their busy, extraordinary lives have taken them on so many adventures, and now, they’re about to embark on their biggest adventure yet! Becoming Mr. & Mrs. Engel!
They nailed their love story & wedding-day hashtag! If you share photos from their wedding day & other festivities to social media, be sure to use it!
