Brooke & William are one of my very special couples that I came to know through living my double life as a veterinary technology major. Brooke is one of my classmates and now a close friend! Being together for months on end while struggling to get through anesthesia class will do that to you. Anyway, when the time came for her to start wedding planning, I was honored for her to choose me as her photographer! I was equally as excited for her engagement session! Brooke shared all her ideas of a long flowy dress in a cotton field with me and I knew we would do whatever it took to make this dream of hers happen, and I am so glad we did! I can only imagine how much fun we’re going to have next November at their Florida wedding!
How did you meet?
We meet when I was 8 years old. I was in 4-H and needed a lamb for my very first market lamb show. Williams family raised and sold lambs to 4-H competitors like me, so we got in contact with the Hastings family and that is how I meet William.
What has been your favorite memory together thus far?
This was extremely hard for me to decide since William and I have been together for almost 5 years, we have so many great memories together. However, my favorite memory of us is when I told him I was going to go to college in Mississippi. He did not beg me to stay, or tell me he couldn’t do long distance, or even question my ability to be so far from family and friends. He simply stood by my side and told me how proud he was of me and how excited he was for me to take this adventure. I felt like we grew as a couple that day because I understand it is very hard to be 12 hours from each other, but he knew it was very important to me. To me those are the best memories made as a couple.
How did he propose?
It was spring break of my junior year and my mom, William and I decided to spend the week in Nashville, TN. We went on the famous pedestrian bridge in Nashville to take pictures of the beautiful city. After taking a couple of pictures, I turned to William and he was down on one knee. He then asked that life changing question “will you marry me?” Of course I answered him with a YES!
What are you most excited for on your wedding day?
I have to say I am most excited to see the look on Williams face when I walk down the aisle. I also cannot wait to see him all handsome in his suit!
[…] Brooke was one of my classmates at Mississippi State and over our time together there, we became close friends. When she got engaged in my now home of Nashville, I was THRILLED for her! You can imagine how excited I was when Brooke told me she wanted to have a friend by her side to be her wedding photographer! I knew how excited she was to finish school and get back to her friends and family in Florida. Until she got back there, we had some wedding planning to do!
