The Story of Kathryn and Lance……
I started going to Pottsville A/G (where Lance grew up) when I was 10 years old. Lance and I were almost immediate friends that summer and became best friends over the next year. (I was 10 and Lance was 9) The summer that we were both 11, we attended church camp together with our church. That week I decided that being friends was not enough, so I bribed one of my good friends to ask Lance to be my boyfriend, to which he replied “I guess”. And, that’s where it all started! We were grade school sweethearts for about a year, and then I broke Lance’s poor heart. He grieved (lol) for “months” and watched from the sidelines as I dated other guys. We were still very close friends throughout those four years and then during my junior year of high school and Lance’s sophomore year, Lance (this time) decided he wanted to be more than friends and actually drummed up enough courage to “ask me out” on MSN Messenger on January 1, 2007. And the rest is history! (of course you know about our proposal story and how Lance plotted behind my back… because you were there plotting with him! You little weasel!!!! hahaha) But that about sums it up!Lance’s version:
All that is very true! HOWEVER: I have a ‘side to the story’ too! Love at first sight is not just a “make believe cliche!” Believe me, I’ve witnessed it first hand! The very first time I saw Kat, I KNEW! I just, knew! So began my pursuit! However, like Kat said, she’s the one who asked me out! We dated for, what seemed like a lifetime, and call me weird, but I REALLY think I was in total love! While everything was going great, she very unexpectedly ripped my 5th grade heart right out of my chest! It was VERY traumatic… just ask my mom. LOL. So while she dated other guys for four years, I just kind of sat around waiting on Kathryn to REALIZE WHAT SHE’d LOST! LOL! No, really, I waited because I knew! So, with time, years later, an opportunity presented itself, and I took advantage! I asked, she said yes. And here we are, five and a half years later, happily engaged and planning the rest of our lives together… JUST LIKE I pictured it to be back in 5th grade!
I couldn’t write that any better than they did, so let Kathryn and Lance tell their own story! These two have become very special to me. Of course, the fact that I was able to play a little part in their actual proposal has something to do with it, but beyond that, Kathryn and Lance are just such an incredible couple, and I am just so thankful that I get to be the one to document their love story, and wedding next March. On a side note, Kathryn was a student teacher in Abree’s classroom this last semester, and Abree just fell totally in love with Ms. Young!
So, here are the rest of the images from Kathryn and Lance’s engagement session last week…….or you can see the whole shoot in the SLIDESHOW!
