So I don’t know if I said this yet but when Knotsvilla turned 2, we decided we wanted more interesting photo sessions to share with you. We love all the classic photos but somehow we have had this hunger for theme-ful, prop-ful, culture-ful and color-ful weddings and engagements. So you can imagine why today’s firefighter engagement session is one I share with much glee. Not only is the theme full with the honorable firefighting occupation but story is one for the reads.
According to this submission, Lauren lived in an Oklahoma City apartment complex one floor above Caleb for two years before they officially met. One day, as she was passing by, Caleb made a clever remark about her University of Oklahoma sweatshirt. Although he roots for the rival team in Oklahoma, that little remark has led to a lifetime’s worth of romance for these two, who are set to be married in the spring. For their engagement shoot, they decided to use a field located behind Lauren’s grandparents’ home. She had always talked about incorporating that location into her wedding somehow, so this was a special way to keepsake there some very special memories. Lauren is so proud of her brave, fire-fighting fiancé, who stands a good sixteen inches above her. It’s no wonder she feels safe in his arms! I’m sure we can all agree that there is something very special about being in the company of men and women who willingly risk their lives for others on a daily basis.
For the proposal story, you can find it at the bottom after falling in love with their photos!
From Lauren: “Caleb and I got engaged on September 14, 2013. He almost blew it a couple of months earlier when he text me instead of his sister and said that he was about to order the ring! I ‘pretended’ that I did not read the message even though we both knew I did. We went to Tulsa on September 14th to go to a Luke Bryan concert. On the way to the concert we stopped at a botanical garden called Woodward Park. We were walking around when I noticed that we weren’t looking at any of the plants and flowers. We were walking quickly past all of them! Caleb led me into an area of the gardens that didn’t have many other people. Before I knew what was happening he stopped walking and turned towards me and started telling me how much he loved me. Then he got down on one knee and proposed! I of course said yes!”
