Alison + EthanLake Martin Engagement

When Wedding Paper Divas contacted me a few months ago about doing a styled shoot, I knew I wanted to showcase the beauty Louisiana has to offer by doing a Lake Martin engagement session.  Lucky for me, Alison and Ethan volunteered to use this styled shoot as their engagement session and I couldn’t have asked for better than that.  These two are amazing.

Alison and Ethan met years ago at an LSU party, then met again at a festival about 7 years ago where Alison asked Ethan for a piggy back ride and the rest was history.  On Saturday, October 11, he asked her to marry him.   Here’s a recap of the proposal story told by Alison:

“He asked me all day if I wanted to go to Social, little did I know there was a plan behind the scenes!  I had spent the whole day shopping and naturally there was noway I was getting dressed up again to go eat out.  Ethan got the hint and couldn’t wait any longer!  We were in our room talking and he pulls out a picture from and inside is a poem he wrote me and a timeline of pictures from the years we had been together.  He got down on one knee and popped the question!  Of course I said YES!  Then I got dressed up to go eat at social to celebrate.”

Huge thanks to Alison + Ethan for letting use your engagement session for a sweet little styled shoot.  Thank you to Wedding Paper Divas for sponsoring this shoot!  Also HUGE thanks to K Parris Events for styling the whole thing and making the beautiful flower arrangements and Stephanie Finch from Merle Norman Cosmetics in New Iberia.

You guys are a blast.  Here are a few favorites:
