To say their engagement session is pure magic is an understatement! Take in the serenity of this session and learn more about the couple from their photographer Ava below!
How did the couple get engaged? Tell us about their proposal!
Ava: Magaly and Nick’s family all gathered for the holidays last year. On Christmas Eve they decided to do a Secret Santa gift exchange between their families. Once everyone had exchanged gifts, Nick’s sister said there was one last gift for everyone and that they all had to open it together. In each little gift box there was a ring pop except Nick’s, which was Magaly’s engagement ring. He then got on one knee and asked his best friend to be his wife!
Tell us about the engagement session. Where did it take place?
Ava: The engagement session took place by the water at Percy Priest Lake. We utilized every inch of the property ranging from the boulders along the shoreline to the tall pines reaching for the sky.
What’s the significance of the location(s)?
Ava: Nick was scheduled to deploy one week after the engagement session, and they wanted the location to be special and unique to them. We met early to beat the harsh glow of the sun and we had the whole area to ourselves. The time they shared was so serene — a truly magical session as they cherished every moment with each other.
What was it like working with the couple?
Ava: Magaly and Nick’s love is pure and true. For me, there’s no better subject than two people in love.
What did you like most about the session?
Ava: Although I find many favorite moments in each session, I always tend to enjoy getting to know my clients on a more personal level. Connecting with them is what I love most.
This dreamy lakeside engagement at Percy Priest Lake is making our hearts gush! Thank you to Photos by Ava Vienneau, Magaly, and Nick for sharing it with us!
