Kaylea & Brandon Engagement Session at Little Stony Creek Falls VA

December 8, 2021

Moody Engagement Session at Little STony Creek Falls, Va

We made our way down the trail to the main falls. We were in luck. The rain from the previous night raised the water level just enough to create a perfect amount of water flowing over the cliff edge.

All I can say is that it tuned out to be a perfect day with an amazing couple! Check out the full gallery and slideshow below, and don't forget to read the Couple's Q&A at the end of the post!

Any chance I can get to travel with a couple up to Little Stony Falls... I take it!  It's such a unique and fun location.  Kaylea and Brandon were up for the drive and we planned out the shoot for a weekday.  With the fall colors peaking, I wanted to try and have a little privacy up there during normal working hours.

To my joy, we pulled into the parking lot and were the only people visiting the falls that day. That was the first for me! Typically the parking lot has at least a few groups of people.

COUPLE'S Q&A

Future Wedding Date and Venue

Date of the Session & Location

5-7-2022 | The Side Porch in Gray, TN

10-13-2021 | Stony Creek Falls, VA

When and where did you go on your first date?

How did Y'all meet?

Tri-Cities, TN on January 2, 2019

We met online. It was fate or something, because we shouldn’t have even crossed paths.

Tell me about your first date together?

How did you fall in love?

Brandon drove 2.5 hours from Kentucky to Tennessee to meet me. I introduced him to my friends and showed him around the Tri-Cities.

I think for Brandon, it was immediate - love at first sight. For me, I think it happened over time. As he gained my trust, which is hard to do, I realized he would do anything for me and go anywhere with me.

What are you most excited about for your wedding?

When and where did he/she propose?

On June 7, 2020 Brandon took me on a day trip to Cleveland, SC to see Symmes Chapel (also called “Pretty Place” and it sure lived up to its name). He was acting suspiciously nervous the whole 2.5 hour drive there, but had told me he hadn’t ordered a ring, so I never suspected anything. (I even tried to pat down his pockets.) He also did not tell me to change out of the dinosaur romper I decided to wear on the hot summer day - he definitely could have told me to put something nicer on lol

He said he absolutely could not have told me to change because I would have known. And Brandon can’t keep a secret from me to save his life.

Brandon is most excited to see me in my dress (he’s crying right now while thinking about it).

I’m most excited to get to celebrate us with everyone we love.

Where would you go on your dream honeymoon?

Still trying to decide- Somewhere relaxing is a must!

Chicken nuggets and Diet Coke

How have you grown as a couple since you first started dating?

What is your most favorite thing about each other?

Kaylea: my favorite thing about Brandon is that he's always down for anything. If I want something, he’ll try his hardest to make it happen. Brandon: my favorite thing about Kaylea is that she puts up with me no matter what.

We have both grown so much and support each other's goals in life.

Favorite quirk about each other?

How do you feel most loved by your partner?

Kaylea: Brandon can’t keep a secret. Which sometimes is bad, but mostly good because I don’t love surprises. Brandon: every time Kaylea goes to sleep, her arm or leg twitches and she passes out. It’s Adorable.

Brandon: I feel most loved when Kaylea cooks for me. It’s always the best food I’ve ever tasted. Kaylea: I love Brandon the most when he does little things to make my life easier - like carrying my bags or filling up my cup.

What were first impressions of each other?

Brandon: I thought Kaylea was crazy because she was way out of my league. Kaylea: The whole day was a blur - I was so excited/nervous to finally meet in person.
