Megan & Kyle met through an online dating app and Kyle was everything Megan expected him to be. They had made plans to just have dinner and some drinks, but they had so much fun that they kept the night going and ended up going bowling. {To this day, Kyle remembers what Megan was wearing the first time they met.} Well, they both couldn’t wait to see each other again so the following weekend Kyle surprised Megan with a trip to Michigan to visit a few wineries. One of those wineries would end up being the place he proposed at a year later!

Kyle planned to propose to Megan with their families present on a fall apple-picking trip to Michigan, but plans had to change. Instead of apple picking with family, Kyle decided to bring their sisters along on the trip to Michigan to visit the wineries they like to visit. Their favorite one, Gravity, has amazing views so he decided to go there before the sun went down. Little did Megan know was that he had her engagement ring in his pocket the entire time. After a few glasses of wine, they went down by a pond and grapevines to take some pictures. Their sisters distracted Megan while Kyle positioned himself behind her on one knee. When she turned around, Kyle was waiting to “pop the question!” Of course, she said yes!

Megan’s center diamond in her engagement ring is special because Kyle’s uncle had some diamonds he kept that were in the his mother’s engagement ring. Kyle used that center diamond and set it into a ring he chose. The other perfect thing is that the remainder of smaller diamonds from his uncle’s mother’s engagement ring are now placed into Kyle’s wedding band, so they will each have a piece of that engagement ring.

For other couples preparing for an Engagement Session, Megan suggests listening to your photographer! Megan comments, “Sarah definitely knows what she is talking about! When she makes you laugh, it’s for a reason. When she makes you stand in what feels like an awkward pose, it most definitely does not end up looking like you were in an awkward pose.”
