Mark + Mary | Emerts Cove | Smoky Mountains Photographer

Mark and Mary have only been together for 6 months, but she knew that she was going to marry him the first day she met him – she even asked him right after meeting him.

During nursing school while working at Burger King, Mary was standing outside with her boss and saw a guy go through the drive thru with a big beautiful truck.  She loved his truck and had to meet him.  She even jokingly said, “Will you marry me? I love your truck.”

They both came to the Smoky Mountains for a weekend getaway.  Mark planned on asking for her hand in marriage while they were here and I suggested for them check out Emerts Cove.  When I arrived, they were next to the river.  His plan was to see me with my camera and ask if I could take a picture of the two of them.  After, he would propose as I held the camera.  The proposal was so sweet and Mary was completely shocked.

After the proposal, I gave them a few minutes to talk and soak in what just happened.  Then we walked around and took some engagement pictures.  Mark even brought along a dress for Mary to change into who was all smiles after the engagement.

I absolutely love photographing couples – thank you guys so much for allowing me to be a part of such a special memory.  I hope you treasure your photos forever and have a FANTASTIC wedding!
