There are some engagement sessions that stop us in our tracks. This is one of them.
Allison Howard and Lance Powell, (both current Jonesboro residents), took a trip to Memphis with photographer Megan Burges to capture these stunning, colorful engagement photos. The two will tie the know in Memphis at The Columns on Saturday, October 20, 2018.
Here's their engagement story in Allison's words:
Lance and I started planning a trip to Cancun in January 2018, as a Christmas gift to each other. Lance told me at the airport in Memphis prior to our first flight that he had a surprise for me in Mexico. He said he booked a romantic dinner for the two of us on the beach that night! I was so excited and had no idea what that evening was going to entail.
We got to Mexico, checked into our beautiful resort and immediately changed for dinner. We met our concierge at 7:15 to head to the beach. We sat down and our waiter popped some bubbly. Lance asked me what we should toast to. Immediately I said, 'Cheers to Mexico, Merry Christmas to us, yay for warm weather, etc.' He stopped me and said, 'No, I’ve got something better.' He walked around the table, got on one knee and PROPOSED!!!
After two years of dating, I knew we would get engaged, but had no idea it’d happen in Mexico! The next day, I’m still thinking it’s only Lance and I and his cousins in Mexico. We’d invited my parents but they had already 'booked a trip to Vegas,' so they couldn’t join us. I was just enjoying being engaged at the pool, staring at my ring every second I got, when around 4 p.m. I look up and saw my mom and stepdad walking down to the pool! I couldn’t believe it! It was definitely the best and most memorable trip I’ve ever taken and will ever take!"
