Amanda and Keith
How We Met
Our second date was to a local record shop and we spent nearly an hour browsing through their selection and bonding over our mutual love of music. That 2nd date led to two years! In those years, we’ve seen each other through many hardships but many more wonderful times and we both knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.
how they asked
I am a wedding photographer, a pursuit that Keith has been more than supportive of, so great photographs are of utmost importance to the both of us. I had mentioned last winter that we ought to have couples photos taken of the two of us. He agreed but we wound up putting it off since we were incredibly busy with the holidays.
In early June, Keith asked if I still wanted to have photos taken, to which I happily agreed! I reached out to my dear colleague Beth of 3 Cats Photo and asked if she would be interested in taking our photos. She was thrilled about the idea and the 3 of us began planning our photo shoot. We incorporated our love of local craft beers and vinyl into an adorable photo session.
Unbeknownst to me, Keith had contacted Beth and told her about a surprise he had planned. The two of them conspired and planned the perfect moment for Keith to propose!
We were having a blast taking photos of the two of us dancing together, and as we were spinning, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I of course instantly said yes!
