Uptown Charlotte Engagement

Erica & Chris

Here is a quick Q&A with this lovely couple:

Where are you both from? Erica is from Stafford, Virginia; Chris moved around a lot but considers himself from New Jersey and his family is currently in Richmond, VA

What are your careers? Erica: Marketing Specialist; Chris: (IT) QA Manager

How did you meet? Playing in a recreational adult kickball league

What was your first date like? We went to Cowfish for dinner but we were friends for a while before we actually started dating so it was really easy to transition from friends to relationship and I think that helped a lot in making our first date so comfortable.

Describe the proposal- Chris and I went to Mexico with my best friend, Meghan and her husband Dan. We all decided to take a walk on the other side of the island before dinner to watch the sunset up on this old building. According to Meghan, Chris kept pulling the ring out of his pocket because he was so nervous and she had to keep telling him to knock it off! I at one point was facing the opposite way of him, and when I turned around, he was on one knee. We both laugh because neither of us can remember what was said!

How did your personal style to play into your engagement session?

I love the city’s tall buildings and long lines and would like to combine that with a more formal outfit. I also really love a soft lighting and black and white because it is so classic!

What are the top 3 activities you do together?

1. Travel – we try to go on a few vacations a year whether near or far just to get away!

2. Spoil our dog, Finnick– he’s out little nugget we like to take him on walks, to the dog park or on hikes

3. Explore new restaurants/breweries – we both really love to eat and love to go out and try different places in Charlotte

If you woke up on a Saturday morning with no plans, how would you spend your day together? Make breakfast, take a walk and venture out to either a brewery or winery in the area.
