Just wow- Alyssa and Nick are incredible! And their Light and Airy Orchard Engagement session was perfect in every way.
To keep it simple, Engagement sessions are meant to be laid back and fun. A low-stress way to get to know one another and to make some special photos at the same time.
Wedding days tend to be rushed… so the Engagement session will help us hone in on what you like (and what you don’t like) in regards to your wedding day photos! (Additionally- we start out with drinks first…. and that is always a great time! haha)
Alyssa and Nick
These two are definitely special! From our first conversation, I knew that they were just so awesome! And seeing them together, you can just see their sweetness towards each other.
Nick had just returned home early last month from a significant deployment. (USMC) Which made their engagement session even more special. He has a gentle and sweet tenderness for his bride-to-be. (He opens the car door for her every single time. Which has my heart swooning over here) And it certainly showed in the photos.

But in addition to that- they also have a sweet goofiness towards each other! So why don’t we learn more about them, and see a few of the amazing Light and Airy Engagement Photos we made together!
How did you meet?
Nick & I first met during our sophomore year of high school. We were taking a history class and one of our favorite teachers called Nick out for having a “crush” on me. Not to mention, we had never talked a day in our lives before that point. Well, somehow joking around about it brought us together. So, shoutout to you, Mr. Clark! We met in 2013, and have been inseparable ever since.
Tell us about your first date!
Our first date was a hypnotist show at our high school. We laughed all night, and connected instantly!
How did he propose?
For Christmas, Nick’s brother, Zach gave us a weekend away at an Airbnb in Vermont. We had a beautiful loft to our self. On January 19, 2019, Nick popped the question during a crazy snowstorm. That night we went out to the cutest pizza spot and just enjoyed each other’s company. I brought the left over food to the fridge, and to my surprise, when I came back he was on one knee! I loved how it was so in the moment with just the two of us. It made it that much more special.
What do you do for fun?!
As lame as it is, we love to go to Buffalo Wild Wings and get our usual favorite drinks, Bud Light and Bahama Mamas! We love the people, the atmosphere, and don’t get us started on the wings…. We always make sure to stop at Target before we leave, because who doesn’t love Target?
In her free time, Alyssa enjoys walking our dog Brodie, shopping, and looking for our future home on Zillow. Nick enjoys working out and making the best breakfast EVER while jamming to his favorite music. Together, we love hanging out with their friends and family!
Funny quirks or habits! (That you may find adorable or annoying. ha) in your fiance!
We love imitating each other when we make a joke, or say something dumb. We always find the fun in everything!
How are the wedding plans coming along?
The wedding plans are coming along! Nick was deployed overseas for the majority of the planning, but we’re well on our way to our dream wedding! We just have a few more details to sort out, and getting our save the dates sent out!!
As a couple currently planning a wedding. What advice can you offer?
I would tell any couple who is currently planning their wedding to do your research and choose vendors you connect and “vibe” with. I can’t tell you how many calls I had with vendors and I just knew instantly we weren’t a match. When I was able to consult with Kris, I just felt like she was the one instantly. You want someone who is real, and someone who will make you feel comfortable (doesn’t hurt if they have a potty mouth and love wine as much as you do)!
Describe your wedding day visions!
Our wedding vision is going to be an oceanfront party. We want all of our guests to have the time of their lives on our big day. A fun, romantic wedding is all we could ever want!
