Lydia + Corey | 2019

If you know me, you know that escape room engagements are a quirky combination of my two favorite things: escape rooms and, well… romance! Believe it or not, that’s actually how I met Lydia and Corey.

Corey contacted The Escapery (where I work part-time) to book an escape room with a surprise ending: a proposal.

When the final puzzle box opened, I heard Lydia exclaim, perplexed, “Is that it?” The “it” she referred to was a little box where the Spear of Destiny should’ve been. I turned the corner just in time to catch Corey, finally kneeling to ask…

will you marry me?

It’s not often I get to follow a couple from “Will you marry me?” to “I do,” so I was thrilled when these two asked me to be their wedding photographer!

ever after

The dream board Lydia compiled on Pinterest was moody, warm, and film-inspired. This set the tone for a charming, documentary-style photo shoot, where we wandered around Marietta Square and finally landed in a quaint park. Many laughs, many kisses, and many snuggles were had… not to mention the discovery of a new pose I’ll never, ever be able to stop laughing about.
