Kate + Drew | Engagement | Manhattan, KS | Rose Wheat Photography

They started talking out of convenience. Both of them had just moved from Kansas State University to Texas where they shared an internship. Neither of them knew anyone else, so understandably they started hanging out. One thing lead to another and before they knew it, Drew was proposing to her during Christmas time in New York City.

We got started on a cute note with Kate and Drew's engagement session, fully armed with a tandem bicycle rented from the all too adorable

Varsity Donuts

 and a bouquet of balloons from

Acme Gift

. It was a truly local Manhattan engagement. 

After the first outfit change we were blessed with a washing of sunshine. All of us were hoping it would make an appearance. Who doesn't like a little backlighting and lens flares? We tromped around the

Konza Prairie

and ended at a nearby dirt road to make things a little country.

We were a little chilly when we wrapped things up, but it was all in all kind of a really fun shoot. :)

Wish them a beautifully happy engagement, and I wish you all a happy Monday!

Mary + Troy | Engagement | Manhattan, KS | Rose Wheat Photography

He met her family, all of her family, before he met her. You could say they did things a little backwards. If things didn't work between them, it would really make the relationship with her family weird. But he took a leap. After one blind date together, they were inseparable. Close one, right?

It proved true on their engagement session, where they were clearly just happy to be around one another. It was a precious time for them, and they didn't hold back. I'm thankful for their vulnerability in front of them camera, as it helped me to capture a special side of their relationship so that I could share it with all of you.

Look out for their wedding this fall, where you'll be sure to experience some precious moments right along side them. :)
