Engagement Session – Waxhaw

Lindsay & Wally’s engagement session – Waxhaw, North Carolina.

This cute couple met in highschool 7 years ago and have been together ever since. They met at a party and they just “clicked”. Lindsay is a bubbly beauty who is perfectly balanced by her strong & silent type fiancé, Wally. Wally is a Charlotte firefighter. I want to take a moment to thank all the firefighters out there who put their lives in danger on a regular basis, to help/save others! Thank you for all that you do!!
