When they reconnected on Facebook after meeting in High School, Brooke didn’t think much about the overly flirtatious Andrew. I mean, she thought he was cute and all but wasn’t quite thinking “relationship” yet. They made plans to go out with friends one night to see each other for the first time in person since high school. Brooke was charmed by Andrew’s bewildering smile and swag wearing his striped grey thermal. When she announced she had to depart early in the evening, Andrew quickly seized the opportunity to see her again and invited her to breakfast the next morning. That my friends would officially be their first date.
The next morning Andrew cheerily (and a little woosy from the night before) met Brooke at The Beachgrass Cafe. That is when he really poured on the charm and Brooke was hooked.
They frequented their favorite little breakfast spot so it wasn’t out of the ordinary. One morning they went out for a morning stroll, took their sweet little Helmut to the doggie beach and then to the Beachgrass Cafe. Andrew was a little more jittery than usual as the server brought the menus. Brooke opened hers to find it full of photos of them together, plus a “Brooke Lindsay Lamb, will you marry me?” After some shaking, some states of shock, some squeals, and some serious excitement… she said yes.
When Brooke told me that they were thinking of doing something a little different for their Engagement session, I was so excited! Brooke wanted to use the Ace Hotel as a backdrop and have a little retro fashion forward feel to it.
Brooke & Andrew, thank you so much for the opportunity to capture such precious memories! We love you guys and cannot wait for your wedding next year!! Love, Ashley
