Katie and Sam engagement session in Seattle

March 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Katie and Sam are so beautiful, in side and out. We had a great time on their engagement photo session.  They met at Virginia Tech University. She even wore their school colors in one of her outfits for the shoot. It’s fun hearing all of their experiences they’ve shared together. Their wedding will be on a golf course in Virginia.  We are very much looking forward to being a part of their wedding day. They’re the greatest!

Q. Like every snowflake and every photograph, we know that every couple is different and unique. So we want to treat you as such. When we photograph your wedding day the more we know about the real you as individuals and as a couple will help us capture who you truly are. What’s your story? How did you meet? How did the proposal go?

A. About Katie

Katie grew up in Southwest Virginia. She attended Virginia Tech to study Human Nutrition and Exercise and then studied Physical Therapy at Lynchburg College. She is currently practicing as a Doctor of Physical Therapy in an outpatient clinic in Kent, Washington. She treats a variety of orthopedic injuries and is currently pursuing a certification in manual therapy.
In her free time, Katie enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest with Sam, crafting, and trying new recipes. She is excited to be meeting new people and serving at her local church, Calvary Baptist, in Renton, Washington. She is excited to see where Christ is leading her, in faith, life and community.

About Sam

Sam grew up in Northern Virginia, outside Washington DC. He attended Virginia Tech where he studied Aerospace Engineering. He is currently working for Boeing where he designs the new 737MAX.
In his free time Sam enjoys, hiking with Katie, reading, listening to Jazz, and sketching new aircraft designs. (which he will one day build in the garage if Katie will let him).

How we met

Sam and Katie met in the fall of 2007 while dancing to the Hokie Pokie at Virginia Tech. Sam quotes “I saw this curly-haired girl from afar and had to go say hello.” Sam and Katie were both members of the Marching Virginians where they played in the clarinet section and cheered on the Hokies from the best seats in Lane Stadium.

How we got engaged

When Sam first asked Katie out on a date, they were in Miami, Florida attending the Orange Bowl with Virginia Tech. Sam asked Katie to be his girlfriend on the beach. One year later they celebrated their anniversary in Miami on a return trip to the Orange Bowl. To commemorate their time, they took some jars of sand from the beach (a special idea from Sam’s mom).
On March 2, 2013, Sam insisted that Katie should go on a jog with him in the local park. Sam had the jar of sand hidden in his jacket. In Coulon Park overlooking Lake Washington, Sam got down on one knee with the sand (bringing the beach to Katie) and asked Katie to spend forever with him. She said Yes!
A side note: the top the the jar of sand was stuck and Katie thought at the time her ring was stuck in the sand too. Haha! Good thing Sam had the ring hidden in his other pocket!
