Renee and Derek – Lake Chatuge Engagement Session

Happy Wedding Wednesday Friends!  We are so excited to share with you a couple we just ADORE!

Renee and Derek are high school sweethearts (although, there is a debate on whether middle school counts or not).  They have grown up together, supporting each other through distance and on the sidelines of soccer fields and baseball diamonds.  They have close family and friends who feel like part of the family.

So when it finally came time for Derek to say the four words Renee had been waiting to hear, “Will you marry me?” they weren’t the only ones there.

Derek had coordinated with Renee’s best friends who were watching (read as: hiding) in a distant bush, furiously taking pictures not missing a moment.  Their parents awaited them down the street in a restaurant to celebrate. It was a picture perfect moment to kick off the beginning of the next chapter of their love story.

We had so much fun on Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee with Renee and Derek for their destination engagement session.  It was a brand new location for us, these two invited us to their home away from home, so we drove all the way from Atlanta for the weekend just to hang out with them and their adorable pup Houston —  it was so worth it!

We are just going to leave these images right here for you to see for yourselves how beautiful of an evening it truly was.

Congratulations Renee and Derek, we are so honored to capture this special season in your lives.  We can’t wait for your wedding at Little River Farms next summer!

Big Hugs and Lots of Love,

Isaac and Amanda
