Mackenzie & Evan - Destination Engagement Pictures in Chattanooga

When my sweet little cousin, Mackenzie, chose me to photograph her wedding, I was honored and thrilled! She and Evan are high school sweethearts and one of the cutest couples ever! Their wedding will be in North Carolina, but they chose to make a little weekend getaway out of their engagement session and came to visit us in Chattanooga. The night was perfect and Chattanooga pulled out all its charm to be the perfect setting for their pictures!

Renaissance Park in North Chattanooga is a great setting with gorgeous evening light but it takes two people totally in love to make pictures this cute and romantic!

The bracelet Mackenzie is wearing was made from a sample of Evan's handwriting and a saying with personal meaning. And the ring...

Isn't she a cutie? I remember when she used to toddle around and eat Honey Nut Cheerios!

Evan proposed last summer at the beach with this custom sign.

He worked with the jewelry store Mackenzie works at (Schiffman's Jewelers) behind her back to design the ring using his mother's stone and yellow diamonds. He knocked it out of the park!

Before calling it a night, we walked down to the river, taking advantage of Chattanooga's artistic and architectural offerings.
