Maranda Lambrich of Evoke Images is this week’s Featured Photographer. Maranda is based out of St. Louis, MO, and is available for travel locally and internationally.
Here is a little bit from the photographer herself …
Maranda: Photographing couples-in-love is my passion. I am an old-school Romantic at heart. I love putting a man and woman in a unique environment where they can totally be themselves, have fun, and maybe get a little mushy! Nothing is more beautiful than 1) a couple laughing together, and 2) a couple in Love. Laughter & Romance are two of the most important things in a relationship. My goal is to capture both of these elements in their most genuine form in each of my sessions. Every couple has a romantic side. Every couple laughs. Every couple has a story to tell.
Today Maranda is sharing Samantha and Rick’s totally adorable engagement photos with us!
Samantha and Rick have a super cute proposal story! Here it is in the words of the bride-to-be …
Samantha: 4 years ago (the first xmas Rick and I spent together) Rick took me on a carriage ride for a Christmas present because he knows how much I love Christmas and looking at the lights. As we were riding around looking at the lights I made a comment about how awesome it would be if it started snowing. (Too bad it was 45 degrees out that night!!) So then Rick said in a sarcastic tone, “If it starts snowing I’ll marry you!” Well about 10 minutes later it started snowing while we were on the carriage! It was the most magical thing I have ever seen and felt more like a scene from a romantic comedy than real life! After that, Rick and I just stared at each other without saying a word. Just taking in the beauty of the snow and the Christmas lights, holding each other and enjoying our ‘young love’.
Jump ahead 4 years … November 30th we snuggled up for another carriage ride, and right before we went into the park Rick said something along the lines of this (I was so excited I think I forgot to listen, haha!), “4 years ago on this same carriage ride I told you if it snowed I would marry you… and I’m just keeping that promise. Will you marry me?” Of course I was bawling hysterically, but I finally managed to get out the word YES!!!
Maranda, thanks for sharing your beautiful photography and such a delightful proposal story! … And congratulations Samantha and Rick!!
