If you’re like us and like reading a love story, you’ll enjoy this! The beautiful engagement shoot of Katie and Matt took place on a mountain in New Jersey and photographed by Laurel Creative. The images have turned out fantastic! Katie and Matt are tying the knot in August and we wish them all the best!
From the bride-to-be, Katie: “We grew up going to camp together for one week every summer. As we got older, we spent more and more of that week together and when I was 14, I knew deep down that I would marry him someday. At the end of each night, he walked me back to my room and for years I cherished those walks together. It wasn’t until later that I learned how much he looked forward to them too. It was on one of those walks that he first told me how he felt about me and we started dating in the summer of 2014. We built a long distance relationship on text messages, letters, and monthly weekend visits. When I decided to spend 6 months in South America, he was unwavering in his support and he never doubted that we would make it work. It was difficult to have nothing but disconnected phone calls and emails to communicate, but it was that time apart that solidified our desire to be together. This past summer, he proposed with a picnic at the camp where it all started. Sometimes, when I look at him I have a hard time believing that the boy who used to walk me home is the man who will be waiting for me at the end of the aisle in August!”
