High school sweethearts. Rarely do they fall in love and stay in love, but David + Lindsay come from a LEGACY of high school sweethearts-third generation to be exact. From generation to generation, both of their families are deeply committed to honoring their wedding vows and know that putting your spouse first makes for a long and happy marriage.
We met David + Lindsay at our favorite spot in midtown Atlanta — Cafe Intermezzo and had an extra special treat of meeting both of their moms that day. We all listened to David tell how he surprised Lindsay with a proposal in Forsyth Park. Lindsay giggled as he told us how the rain just kept coming, but he was determined to ask no matter what! With a little liquid courage in the early morning and an umbrella David convinced Lindsay to take a walk with him. She buzzed in “I just kept thinking, why is he being so weird??? He wanted to have a drink in the morning and walk in the rain? But he’s always so sweet, I just thought he was being romantic.” He got down on one knee and of course she said yes!
When we planned Lindsay’s engagement session she wanted to do it at a place sentimental to her and David. David’s family owns Higgins Lagrange Chapel and since Lagrange, Georgia is where the couple plans to make roots, it was only fitting to do photos there. We started in downtown Lagrange (which by the way is soooooo adorable), headed to their house for some fun photos (see that story below), and ended our session where they spent many of their high school days West Point Lake — in Alabama! This was definitely the first time we did one engagement session in two states. Once we arrived at the marina we knew it was totally worth it. Who wouldn’t want photos with the love of their life with a lake and sailboats in the background??
Thank you Intensify by Patience for showing off Lindsay’s natural beauty!
A few years ago Lindsay’s dad passed away. At our bridal consult her mom told us that they all called Lindsay “Lindsay-rella” because she was always daddy’s princess. So, for her engagement session, Lindsay wanted to involve her dad’s teal blue pickup truck. It was in that truck that her parents went cruising before getting married and where her dad proposed to her mom so many years ago. What a cool tribute to look back and know that truck has made it through two engagements–maybe even three one day!
Y’all– Lindsay’s ring is perfect. A gorgeous, perfect diamond. But, the high setting let a little light from the truck shine through when Becca took this ring shot. Doesn’t it look like a heart?!?! I fully believe that’s just Lindsay’s daddy letting her know he’s there.
As the sun quickly fell we headed just over the Alabama line to West Point Lake. As we approached the lake, rain started to fall. Cool as a cucumber Lindsay just smiled. She said, “It wouldn’t be us if there wasn’t a little rain.” <3
Thank you David + Lindsay for inviting us into your lives with open arms. We already feel like one of the family and cannot wait for your wedding in May!
