It all started in South Florida, summer of 2017 where Olivia + Walker first met each other. At the time, Olivia was coaching a highschool volleyball team where she had met one of her best friends who was friends with Walker. Her friend just knew these two would get along well and was dying for them to meet each other. The moment Olivia + Walker met, sparks were flying instantly and they both knew they shared something special.
Their first date together was when Olivia traveled up to Raleigh to visit Walker for a week. He took her ice skating and then to dinner at their now favorite Mexican restaurant. Fast forward a few years later, Walker planned a trip to Beaver Creek Colorado. On one of their days there, they explored the town of Vail. Driving through the village and walking around shopping. Later that day, they got changed for their ice skating reservation in Beaver Creek Village. As they were skating, Walker asked Olivia to take a selfie with him in the center of the ice rink. He made her look the other direction and when she turned around, he was on one knee! Talk about a perfectly planned proposal!
Olivia + Walker started off my 2021 season with their engagement session which was so much fun! They invited me down to Wilmington, North Carolina ⏤ a place that is so special to them. I was instantly greeted with a warm hugs and cheers, these two have the biggest hearts! They’re getting married at Airlie Gardens which was just down the road from Walker’s parents beach house. We explored their gorgeous garden venue, I got to meet their adorable golden Ellie, and we ended the session at the beach which had the most perfect cotton candy clouds and sunset. These photos may seem like it was a warm day but Olivia + Walker braved the cold with me!
I cannot wait for these two to say “I Do” next spring, their love and vision is absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t thank them enough for honoring me with the job of documenting it. I am counting down until their big day and I am so excited to hang out with them (including Ellie) once more!!
I am already dreaming about Olivia + Walker’s First Look session going down right here! It’s going to be so beautiful! Olivia has everything planned to a tee and I love that!!
