Matt and Asia’s playground engagement session
Geoff and I have known Matt for a few years now, since we met during our time working for Apple. He’s a self-proclamed geek and a total game lover. When he met Asia and we learned that she shared his love for video games and all things nerdy, we knew he could not have found a more perfect mate. What is even cooler is how Matt proposed to Asia — at a Minecraft Convention! If you have a minute you should check out the video of the proposal, it is so sweet and nerdy!
We asked Matt and Asia about places that were close the their heart to do their engagement session. Immediately, Matt told us about a park where they’d spent a lot of time together and had even drawn a picture on the playground equipment (vandals!! hehe) anthropomorphizing themselves as dinosaurs. He went on to tell us about a field nearby with stairs that lead to nowhere. This place sounded awesome! So we met up with them at the park and they went right off in search of the drawing. It was still there!
And hello, Asia? Isn’t she absolutely gorgeous!? Matt picked this little bunch of flowers for her…aww.
They couldn’t stop giggling like school kids.
After the park, we headed off to those stairs that lead to nowhere. This place was so cool! Weird abandoned architecture, a huge field filled with spring green grass, crazy tree branches, and a random patch of wild daffodils, what more could you ask for?
To finish up our session we walked over to the nearby levee for some awesome sunset shots.
If you thought a Minecraft marriage proposal was cool, just wait for the wedding! Matt and Asia told us about all of their amazing Minecraft decor ideas and we cannot WAIT for the wedding! Congratulations you two!
