DISCLAIMER: I love these two.
Alex & Tyler won our AK Studio & Design Wedding giveaway in January. They are getting married in August and we finally met for their engagement session a few weeks ago. We were instant best friends and I am so happy that they won and that I get to be their photographer!
They love to laugh together; as I came to know first hand during their engagement session. Just always smiling and laughing, at each other…and me!
Tyler and Alex met in their ward at BYU (singles wards work!). He was her twin sister’s FHE partner. Alex thought he liked her twin but then one day he asked her out. She says, “I wasn’t really sure about how I felt about him at first, but our first date was awesome”. She kept saying she was too busy to do anything when Tyler would ask, but he kept showing up at her apartment with sour cream and apple juice (what? Weird… but Alex says they are her two favorite things in the world). He would also ask if she had eaten anything and then would volunteer to take her out.
Alex says, “I started to really love his personality (and he is super good looking) and we started to hang out everyday. Eventually, Tyler said, ‘I would really like it if you were my girlfriend.’ I didn’t say anything. I was going to be working all summer for EFY, so I really didn’t want a boyfriend. A week later though, I randomly said, “I guess I will be your girlfriend.” And the rest is history.”
Tyler proposed on January 3rd in New Orleans (where Alex is from). He had an elaborate proposal planned out but Alex is a stinker and caught on and spied on him when he was setting up in a park near her family home.
She asked her family about it and they all got upset and said he’d been working so hard on it and not to say anything to him. The family went to the city that day and Tyler wanted to take a picture in front of Jackson Square. Alex’s sister had told Tyler that Alex knew of his plan, so he decided to propose there! Such a fun memory!
Now back in Utah we have their engagement session and I can’t wait for their wedding! Enjoy looking through these!
