Before we spend even a moment talking about Joey and Emily’s sunrise Lost Gulch Overlook engagement session, let’s start with a love story. Because who doesn’t love a good love story? And Joey and Emily’s is one of the best.
Joey and Emily met the second day of college. Joey and his friends asked to sit by Emily and her friends. And as they like to say, that was “the move that changed history”! They instantly had that kind of connection where you talk til six in the morning and don’t even realize time was passing. Be still, my heart!
The two dated for several years, and then broke up for two as they took time to find their paths. Ever since reconnecting, they’ve been an incredible pair! Every day they grow together. Every day they support each other. They’ve already faced many difficult challenges, but they’ve used them in the best way: to grow stronger together.
Joey proposed to Emily by tricking her into going up to Lookout Mountain. Of course, no good proposal happens perfectly, and it was super windy at the top of the mountain. So much so, that Emily didn’t want to get out of the car! (Kind of a problem when your friend is hiding in the bushes to photograph the big moment…) Luckily, Joey was able to convince her that they just HAD to get out. And Emily was glad she did when he asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Needless to say, her answer was YES.
Now back to their engagement session: Lost Gulch Overlook is one of my favorite locations by far. They chose it for the stunning mountain views, dreamy morning light, and all that gorgeous greenery. And it wouldn’t have been complete without their pups joining for a few photos! Tucker and Luna were absolute sweethearts (and I’m still stunned by Tucker’s ability to take such good care of Emily’s gorgeous ring — you’ll see what I mean below! 🙂 ).
