This elegant engagement session by AMANDA K PHOTOGRAPHY was captured at the beautiful MONET VINEYARDS in the Washington countryside. Working with planner Elizabeth from BRIDAL BLISS Charlotte & Kyle went with both a casual and a formal look for their photos. I'll let the gorgeous bride-to-be tell you more of their story:
About a year and a half ago a mutual friend "just had a feeling" Kyle and I needed to meet. By our third date I knew he was the love of my life and we started dating seriously. We jointly discovered a passion for travel and planned a trip to Paris to celebrate the end of my season with the NBA as a Blazer Dancer. With Kyle's frequent work travel there was a nine day window in early May that fit perfectly. The only problem was the NBA playoffs ran into June, meaning there was a chance I would have to work. At the time it was unthinkable that the Trail Blazers would advance to playoffs and ruin our trip. So we got to work researching sights to see, places to eat and unbeknown to me, a place for Kyle to propose. Fast forward to April, the Trail Blazers would go on to finish the season as one of the hottest teams in the league, and against all odds advanced to playoffs. Since I couldn't let my team down and ditch them in the middle of playoffs, we sadly cancelled our reservations and requested refunds. Bittersweet, no doubt. The Blazers had defied the odds, but our trip, and Kyle's proposal, was ruined.
