Northwest Arkansas Engagement Photos at Beaver Lake | David & Jennifer

The moment he saw her, he was smitten. It was across the room at a birthday party for a mutual friend, and he immediately knew he had to talk to her. So he took a deep breath and headed that way, but not without stopping for a cupcake that was calling his name… because she’d still be there in a few minutes, right? Except she wasn’t. And so it was that David passed Jennifer up for a cupcake, but in the days following their close encounter, he couldn’t stop thinking about that beautiful woman he had almost met. So he did a bit of undercover work and called in a few favors to ensure that she would attend a weekend lake trip with a group of mutual friends. And little did Jennifer know that she was about to meet and fall in love with the man she would eventually marry. 

That weekend, they spend their evenings together under the starts, just getting to know each other. Evening turned into night and hours slipped by as they talked and talked - because who needs sleep when you’re falling in love? And so their story began - delayed by a cupcake but inspired by open water and twinkling stars overhead.

Jennifer and David’s story is absolutely beautiful, and the way that they tell it betrays how highly they think of one another. Many of the lines in the paragraphs above are near exact quotes of the the way Jennifer and David tell their story, and I wanted to share it with you because I think it gives you a really great idea of who these two are - a little bit quirky but hopelessly romantic. I can’t even begin to describe how much I loved getting to know these two during our time together this last week - exploring acres and acres of land together near Beaver Lake in northwest Arkansas. These two are absolutely wonderful people, and I couldn’t be more excited to tell their story and capture just a sliver of the love that they share.
