Zac & Shane met at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV. Shane was a recent graduate from the School of Nursing and Zachary was working on his undergraduate degree in Wildlife Management. “We both agree that we knew our fate was sealed on our very first date. There was a feeling of home that neither of us had felt before.”
I had the honor of photographing Zac & Shane this week at Heritage Plantation for their engagement session. We could not have asked for a more beautiful evening! Their love is so beautiful and I am beyond excited to be celebrating with them as they say their vows in front of family friends this June.
“The proposal was romantic and well thought out. On April 28, Zachary graduated with his masters from Grand Canyon University. That weekend, we were also celebrating Shane’s 30th birthday. Many of our family and friends were in town. The proposal was supposed to happen during this party, but do to a few too many adult beverages, it was postponed. Luckily, Plan B was already in the works. On May 1st, Zachary, Shane, and two of our best friends took a short trip to Top Sail Island. This is where Zachary and Shane rekindled their love 4 years prior. The 4 of us were looking for sharks teeth where Shane got down on one knee and proposed to Zachary. It was a full circle moment. It was the moment they had been waiting for their entire lives.”
“Not only are we soulmates, we are also best friends. We do absolutely everything together and we are always up for trying something new. Our favorite activity includes spending time with our dogs and being outdoors. We are proud West Virginia University fans and we enjoy attending as many sport events as we can. Zachary has a coffee addiction while Shane relies on Diet Coke to make it through his day. We go to as many concerts as possible. We teach each other something new everyday. After the wedding, we plan on traveling more and embracing the world around us.”
Stay tuned in June for images from this couples wedding at Atalaya Castle & Huntington Beach State Park!
