Tammy and Matthew met at their mutual High school, A.C. Flora, in May of 2002. Tammy was a Freshman and Matthew, a senior. Typically, these stories end with "we met, fell in love, and we lived happily ever after," however this is not quite the case with Matthew and Tammy. Although they met in 2002, they didn't see each other again until years later when they both attended college at the University of South Carolina. They began their friendship during that time, both with undeclared crushes on one another, but it wasn't until they had both graduated from USC, that they began (officially) dating in May of 2011
Tammy and Matthew both have a love for all things out doors and enjoy frequent explorations of their home town of Charlotte, NC.
How he proposed..
Matthew proposed on July 3rd, 2015. He came home with passes to the Canyon Zip at the U.S. National Whitewater Center (their favorite place in Charlotte, NC). He crossed over the gorge first, which she secretly thought was ungentlemanly. She landed and he was waiting for her on one knee. He asked if she'd marry him, and of course she said "YES!" Little did she know, the surprise was not over yet. They came home to a bottle of champagne, a bouquet of roses, banners, candles AND her very best friend, Michelle from Columbia, SC. Their 3 dogs were wearing chalkboard tags that read, "My Mommy Is Getting Married," "Mom Said... YES!" and "It's About Time Dad!" Needless to say, she could not have asked for a more perfect proposal.
For their engagement session, we started shooting at the gorgeous Freedom Park & then headed to uptown Charlotte to shoot at BB&T Park, The french Quarters, and in front of the beautiful Queen City skyline.
