Spring Cherry Blossom Engagement Session | Natalie & Aaron

Their Session: Spring Cherry Blossom Engagement Session

Natalie & Aaron’s spring cherry blossom engagement session at Branch Brook Park was the perfect way to kick off the spring season! I was so excited to see some of these pink blooms ready early on! These two are the sweetest together! You can see how in love they are by the way they look at each other. They’re such a joy to photograph! Natalie & Aaron also brough their ADORABLE pug, Daisy, with them for the shoot, and she crushed it. I can’t even handle how cute she is. I’m so excited about all these photos, and can’t wait to share! Before we dive in, let me share a little bit of their love story!

Their Love Story

When I asked Natalie and Aaron to share with me one thing they love about each other, they gave the sweetest answers. Natalie said, “I love that Aarons is always able to keep a positive mindset to keep moving forward even when the road gets rocky. His ability not to sweat the small stuff.” Aaron said, “I love Natalie’s ability to take care of her loved ones, she is always thinking ahead to ensure everyone is taken care of and is incredibly thoughtful (just needs to make sure she’s included on her own list!!)”

How They Met

These two have such a good love story! Natalie told me how they first met, “We’re going to be the Clarks! Super excited. “We met in Tampa Florida in 2017 at work. Aaron is originally from CT, moved down there for grad school and stayed there after getting a job. I’m originally from NY and moved down after college because I got a good job offer. We grew up 3 hours apart but happened to meet in Tampa. We were both assigned to be on the same team and would see each other here and there.”

“Aaron asked me out on a date on Jan 3, 2018 and we immediately became obsessed with each other! Unfortunately, Aaron had a planned work transfer to Boston in June of 2018 and I knew I always wanted to move back to NYC. Aaron ended up moving and we did long distance from Florida for a month until I decided to move back to NYC in August. We did long distance from NYC to Boston for a year until we decided to move in together.”

“I moved to Boston in Aug 2019 and soon after, Aaron got me my dream pug Daisy in Oct 2019. She’s now the main character of the house. We bought a house together in Nov of 2020 in Groton, CT during the pandemic and have been here ever since! Aaron and I actually have worked together at the same company in the same job roles together the past 5 years so we pretty much spend 24/7 together haha! We’re both big 4 accountants so our work life takes up most of our time but looking forward to taking the time to celebrate us. Also, Daisy is our obsession and priority! She will be in the wedding.”

The Proposal

The proposal story is just as sweet. 🙂 Natalie gave me the inside scoop on this amazing surprise. “Aaron proposed March 21, 2022 in Kauai, Hawaii on his 30th birthday. We flew from Boston to Hawaii for 13 hours and had the most incredibly smooth flight experience. Because we were traveling west it was a 30 hour day for us which was kinda cool because it was Aaron’s 30th. I had booked a reservation at this restaurant called tied pools not realizing that was me picking where Aaron was going to propose.”

“After our first drink arrived, Aaron got up and started to walk around the table and got down on one knee and proposed to me on my side of the table. The whole restaurant cheered and Aaron had hired a photographer and videographer for me to have all the memories. I love photos to look back on to relive my favorite moments in life. It was a magical perfect day. We also got upgraded to a suite at our hotel that was like 3x the price of our initial room! Talk about luck.” I couldn’t dream up a more perfect way to kick off a vacation, or a more special way to celebrate a birthday!

Natalie & Aaron

Natalie & Aaron, thank you so much for being so much fun and for having me photograph such a special season of your lives! I can’t wait to celebrate with you two (and Daisy, of course) on the big day at Saint Clements! Until then, enjoy every minute of being fiances! Sending the biggest hug! xoxo
