Erin and Bryan’s Outdoorsy Engagement

Introducing the future Mr. and Mrs. Dop! Erin and Bryan are excited to announce their upcoming wedding on September 22, 2018. To celebrate, these sweet lovebirds met with me for an outdoorsy engagement session. Their love is so effortless that it was easy to snap some sweet photos that show off their relationship and love!

Strong Relationships are Built on Strong Friendships

Erin and Bryan met through their mutual friends. They both had their separate friend groups, which eventually combined. Perhaps fate had a little hand in this fortuitous union? When they first met, Erin and Bryan were just friends who mutually bonded over their affinity for college sports and their dislike of the other person’s team. Nothing like some friendly competition to add a little spice to a relationship, am I right? After they started dating, Bryan knew two months into the relationship that Erin was special and would one day be his wife. He confessed his love and told Erin he was going to marry her when they were at a Jason Aldean concert. Erin knew Bryan would be a keeper very early on, as well. When he picked her up for her first date (she was still living at home at the time), he came up to the door and met Erin’s parents right away. Erin’s dad was impressed with him right away, and that was when Erin knew her man was something special.

Over time, their love has only grown stronger. Bryan loves that Erin has a way of making him feel comfortable with being himself. He holds nothing back when he is with her. Erin is head over heels for the fact that Bryan can always make her laugh, even when she is in the worst mood. He lets her be weird, and even embraces it – in part, she says, because he’s just as weird! As a couple, Bryan and Erin like to hang out with their two crazy pups, watch TV, travel, and watch football on Saturdays and Sundays. Their easy love was evident in their beautiful, outdoorsy engagement session!

An Outdoorsy Engagement Session

To celebrate embarking on their next adventure, I met with Erin and Bryan for an outdoorsy engagement session that would have had even the most non-romantic folks swooning! They were all about candid shots that were reflective of their fun personalities as a couple. Laughing with (and at) each other comes very naturally to this adorable couple, and capturing photos that showed their laughter was so much fun! Erin and Bryan are both excited for their upcoming nuptials – Erin can’t wait to see the reception ballroom all put together, and Bryan is stoked for the cake and cupcakes!

Looking forward to the #SwapToDop wedding this fall!
