View More Photos

Allie and Matt met at a wedding and spent the entire night dancing and talking. For a year after they met they were in along distance relationship and talked every day until Matt finished mechanical engineering school and moved to Montana to be with Allie. Ever since Matt moved up to Montana, him and Allie have been inseparable.

It was the day before Allie’s birthday and her and Matt had plans to go on a kayaking trip on Georgetown Lake. After kayaking around the lake in search of the perfect spot to sit and eat lunch. Soon they realized that what they had thought to be the perfect lunch spot was completely submerged under water.

In need of a new lunch spot they paddled over to the edge of the lake and sat floating in the reeds. Matt then got out of his kayak and kneeled down in two feet of water to propose to Allie. She said yes! After that Matt had one more surprise, he had rented a cabin on the lake and had invited all his and Allie’s family to come stay there for the weekend.

At the cab they popped champagne, celebrated the engagement, and Allie obviously showed off her ring to her family.

The engagement ring was custom designed by Matt himself and was a family affair. The diamond in the center of the ring was taken from a necklace that Allie’s father had given to her mother early in their relationship. The engagement session was on Allie’s family’s property that they will also be getting married on. The shoot consisted of lots of pictures of the ring, lots of snow, and lots of hot chocolate.

Allie likes to bake and always makes homemade marshmallows for Christmas. They used these marshmallows in the hot chocolate that they drink during the snowy engagement shoot. Their love story truly is as sweet as hot cocoa.

The engagement shoot shows how happy and in love Allie and Matt are!

They made sure to choose a photographer that made them feel comfortable and to make sure that their vision came to life. Their engagement pictures show their hot chocolate love story with the details of the custom made engagement ring and the beautiful scenery of their soon to be wedding venue.
