When Tiffany first suggested that part one of their engagement session take place at Sope Creek, I was pretty excited. She said she and Mike like to go down and sit on the rocks by the creek, and they wanted to bring their dogs, Hank and Doc, with them this time. Having driven by the park countless times, I could see why they would hang out there. It’s such a beautiful spot. Since I had never actually stopped at the park, though, I didn’t realise that it was a bit of a hike to get from the parking lot back to the creekside ruins. But, oh, was it ever worth it because it was gorgeous.
Tiffany and Mike really have a great story. After being friends for years and both secretly wanting to be more, they finally admitted how they felt for each other a few years ago and have been together since. When they started planning their trip to Seattle for last September, we all just knew that Mike would propose then. While taking a break to sit by the river on one of their hikes, with her great grandmother’s engagement ring, he did exactly that. They’ll be getting married this October, and we seriously can’t wait. Tiffany has been one of my closest friends for years now, and I am incredibly honoured that she asked us to photograph their wedding in her hometown of Savannah. It’s going to be such an amazing day.
