A gorgeous nature filled engagement shoot in Shenandoah National Park was the perfect fit for these two adventure lovers. Kuralay and Mark got engaged on a camping trip and headed back to nature with Finn Lively Photography, some beautiful fashion forward attire and a flower crown to celebrate their engagement. Kuralay is an amazing wedding photographer herself but wowed on the other side of the camera.
Kuralay and Mark met in Washington DC and started their relationship with a six hour first date complete with a taqueria, dive bar, hookah bar and Amsterdam Falafel. Fast forward to that aforementioned camping trip, Mark proposed to Kuralay in the great outdoors they love so much on a trip away with friends. He serenaded her with a rendition of The Proclaimer's "I Will Be” and then the celebration began with a bottle of champagne stashed in the bottom of a styrofoam cooler. They are now building their life with their adorable pup, George Harrison Supernova, and living each day as an adventure.
We had the pleasure of helping Kuralay and Mark plan a gorgeous and detail filled wedding Puerto Rico earlier this year - make sure you check back for more on that celebration!
