MARY CAITLIN + LUCAS | HATTIESBURG
I knew that Mary Caitlin and Lucas would be a wonderful couple to work with the moment I met them! They are absolutely crazy about each other, and have the most incredible connection. I just adore the way they make each other laugh, and how Mary Caitlin thinks Lucas hung the moon. The two actually met in 1st grade but didn’t start dating until the summer before their senior years. They’ve been together for 5 years and when Lucas proposed at the lake house belonging to Mary Caitlin’s aunt, it was a total surprise. This groom-to-be went above and beyond to make his proposal a truly romantic one. Lucas built a gazebo specifically for that evening! He went all out by covering it with twinkle lights and when he got down on one knee to ask his best girl to become his wife, Mary Cailtin was blown away! I’m not sure it gets any more romantic than that, guys! As you can imagine, when they told me this story, I melted into a puddle!
The couple originally had their hearts set on an engagement session in a pecan grove, but changed their minds to a more downtown setting. I can’t say I was mad about it at all, because their old Spanish villa shoot is one of my faves! Mary Cailtin and Lucas were a blast to photograph. I had so much fun capturing their light hearted chemistry and truly enjoyed getting to know more about them as a couple. Lucas was on his way to Oklahoma the next day for work so I’m glad we were able to steal some time away just for the two of them before he headed out for a few weeks. We chatted over wedding day plans as we worked together and how the two just can’t wait to be married. I’m so excited for wedding day with Mary Caitlin and Lucas!
Mary Caitlin and Lucas - I can’t say enough incredible things about you guys! It’s so much fun being part of your journey to becoming husband and wife, and I feel so blessed to know the two of you. To say I am excited about celebrating you next year is an understatement! I hope you love looking back on your engagement session from last week! Big hugs, Shea
