Amanda & Shiloh – NDSU

Flower-filled Engagement Session at NDSUEngaged couple in pink, denim, and floral print kiss among pink and purple flowers

When the best man from your wedding asks for engagement photos, you of course say yes!  And when they ask for sunflowers, but there are none in the area, you give them a flower-filled engagement session with every other flower you can find!  Shiloh has been friends with my husband since they met in college. He was the best man at our wedding and we have since seen Shiloh meet and fall in love with his future wife!

Shiloh and Amanda met in Michigan where they both worked as Graduate Assistant Hall Director. Shiloh is from Minnesota and Amanda is from Wisconsin, but the universe brought them together in Michigan!  They spent a few years working together and became close friends. Shiloh graduated first and moved to Fargo for his job. Amanda stayed in Michigan, but they continued to talk and visit when they could. They started to realize that they were perfect for each other and started dating!

Amanda was lucky enough to get a job in Brookings, SD, after graduation and their long distance was down to only two and a half hours, but they didn’t stop there! Earlier this year, Shiloh and Amanda took a vacation together. While they were gone, Amanda was offered a job near Fargo. Their long distance could finally end! Then, just a few days later, Shiloh planned a picnic and proposed!  Now these two are happily living in the same area, planning their dream wedding, and loving every moment together and with their puppy!

I LOVE all the dogs that have been joining my engagement sessions lately!  If you also love dogs, here is another dog, and here, and here as well!

    These photos are the most elegant and amazing pictures of two loving people that depict a picture perfect future. Please tell me that Ms. KAY will be present at the wedding. I most urgently wish to meet her. If she can make things look this good, maybe she can do something for me. I loved all of them. I expect them both to dazzle on the special day.
