Romantic Sunset Engagement
So for today I will try to warm your hearts with this romantic sunset engagement session on the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains.
How they met: Gunner and Ashley met when he returned to Michigan after completing medical school in Australia. Their school year is a bit different from ours and he had several months off before he was supposed to start his residency. At the time, Ashley was on her university's acrobatic gymnastics team that Gunner had been part of when he was in undergrad. Gunner decided joined the team in the middle of the semester since he had some time to spare. "I can remember walking up to him to introduce myself after he'd been hanging around the gym for a few days" Ashley said. They spent a lot of time together during practice and while on tour with the team and quickly grew to like each other and started dating shortly after.
How he proposed: Two and a half years later, Gunner and Ashley were on a family vacation in Orlando with his family. They both decided to have a day just to themselves and do a bit of adventuring. They woke up early and started their day by swimming with manatees. Next, they ate at a great restaurant and then went kayaking at a nearby river. Finally, they ended the day by hanging out at the beach and watching the sunset. Gunner told her he wanted to take some pictures of them during sunset time, so he set up his tripod and they took a few shots together. Then, without her knowing, he set the camera to "record" rather than take a picture and, after smiling at the camera for a few seconds, he got down on one knee and proposed.
"It was definitely one of the most exciting days of my life and he couldn't have planned it more perfectly!!!" Ashley said.
You can definitely see their love shine through these images. The way that he makes her laugh and the way that she looks at her, well just take a look... Roanoke Engagement Photographer
