It was so much fun getting to know Zack + Elaina! Zack just graduated as an Engineer and is now working in Orlando, while Elaina works as a psychologist in the Tampa school system. After years of long distance, they were both more than ready to take the next step in their relationship and begin a life together. Elaina is a very type A, has all Christmas presents bought and wrapped by October kind of girl. So Zack planning a surprise proposal came as no small feat… but he did succeed! He proposed on the very bench where they shared their first date years before. 😭💕 Elaina happily agreed and now, just a few weeks later, has all the wedding plans basically finished and taken care of (haha). Now she can check off her list: swoon worthy engagement photos!
Our evening at lakeside was filled with lots of giggles, silly faces and warm conversation. We strolled through the tall grass, dwelt underneath rustic iron arbors, and even had an upclose encounter with a beautiful sandhill crane! But my favorite moments were definitely spent underneath the tree swing! There’s just this air of childhood romance to it that fit Zack + Eliana so well. So thankful for time spent with great people and all the beautiful gems Lakeside Ranch has to offer. It was one of those evenings that felt less like “work” and more like getting to know two new friends.
