I stumbled upon this just now and had to share. Too adorable. Too perfect. I’m taking the info/photos straight from 100 Layer Cake.
So here’s what makes this engagement shoot beautiful, aside from the obvious that it was shot in Iceland… Paige Lowe, the bride-to-be in these photos is also the photographer behind these photos. With her skills, a tripod, and a shutter remote, she was able to capture some phenomenal photos. Oh, and she was proposed to while on this trip with then bf, Keith (this was also caught on camera too btw). Crazy, right? She feels so happy she can shout it from the rooftops, and we’re so happy she’s letting us share it all. Their trip is undoubtedly surreal, like something out of a fairy-tale, and an experience we’d die to have in a heartbeat.
How they met: “Keith and I were set up on a blind date back in 2008. I almost didn’t show because my sister neglected to tell him that I had just had knee surgery and had to wear a huge ugly brace from my hip to my ankle! Luckily I showed and we ended up having a whirlwind summer romance that came to an end when I had to travel back up to Oregon to finish College while he was finishing school down in California. We knew that school was our main focus and our relationship would have suffered, so we ended on good terms and parted ways.
Now I know this is going to sound crazy, but during our two years apart, I swear that every experience I had, every mistake I made, everything I learned during that time was making me a better person not only for myself but for Keith. I grew up a lot during those two years, I had never been so sure of myself and for the first time I knew what I wanted out of life. And I knew I wanted Keith there with me. So after two years apart, I called him up and now we are getting married!”
