Athena and Erik – Locke Engagement session
It only took the sleepy town of San Luis Obispo, a couple years of being around each other and a fun night at the Farmers Market hanging out to get these two to start on the path towards marriage. The real kickstarter to this relationship was line dancing and having fun. You will see them both wearing their favorite pair of boots in their engagement session and I can not wait to see Athena in a pair at the wedding as well. We really feel it could not be more important to be yourself and have fun when it comes to an engagement session and these two fit that bill. These two did not stop when it comes to adventures, line dancing was just the start. After college they both hiked 800km together in Spain, traveled across Europe, competed in triathlons, and made a long distance relationships feel like they live together. Every spare moment they are driving to see each other and continue on any and every adventure possible. It makes sense why their wedding is going to be full of fun, games, and adventures in Tahoe! Athena is always so sweet and Erik almost uncontrollably can not stop laughing. Athena on the other hand always has a smile, maybe partly to Erik.
I seriously love the backpacks. They are such a big part of who they are, where they have been and where they are going together. In fact they are about to head off to Yosemite to go backpacking. I really was not lying when I said adventure is at the heart of their life and love for each other.
