Frankfort Engagement Photos: David & Cassie

Cassie was a resident advisor in Minton Hall at Western Kentucky University in 2012. Like any good romantic movie, she had a hopeless romantic friend who knew just the guy to introduce to Cassie- David, who was staying in the dorm just one floor below her.

The hopeless romantic couldn't have been more right about the couple being the perfect pair. The first night David and Cassie met, they stayed awake until seven in the morning talking and laughing. It only took a couple of weeks of dating for David and Cassie to realize they had something special between them. They officially became a couple on New Year's 2013 and David proposed at their favorite hiking spot, Lost River Cave Bowling Green, Kentucky on New Year's exactly one year later.

For their Kentucky engagement photo session, David and Cassie wanted to brave the Kentucky Blizzard of 2016 for a chilly picnic in the snow.

The temperature was in the 20's, but luckily the couple had each other to keep warm.

They laughed and chatted among the evergreens on the State capitol lawn in Frankfort.

The cold wind was hardly noticeable as David and Cassie had a picnic in the snow.

Together, they enjoyed hot cocoa with marshmallows, which Cassie had stored in a vintage thermos.

David is madly in love with his Bride-to-be, and he couldn't resist kissing her.

Cassie's beautiful ring was perfect, sparkling against the fresh, soft Kentucky snow.

They then walked around an old estate in Frankfort, Kentucky, which has a beautiful hedge garden.

And kissed passionately under the awning in the garden.

To warm up, David and Cassie took me in to a bookstore called Poor Richard's Bookstore, where they kissed among the antique books in the attic.

The light shown in from the huge window facing downtown Frankfort...

and illuminated the couple. When David would kiss Cassie, her face would glow and she would swell with love.

In Poor Richard's the couple could laugh and talk while staying warm!
