Future Mr. & Mrs. Murk | Engagement 2022
Meet this beautiful couple, Austin & Kylie!
When It All Began...
Kylie & Austin have known each other most of their lives! Kylie's family built a house right in Austin's back yard! They grew up together playing with the neighborhood kids. Austin would sometimes go to some of Kylie's travel softball games with her family! The couple has been together for 2 years this coming December! Kylie made the first move by adding him on Snapchat, but Austin was the first to strike a conversations!
Austin knew Kylie was the one after he had went on a couple dates with her and everything just fell into place! He was very quick to not be nervous around her and felt like he could be himself no matter what and she was always going to be there for him! Their life goals matched up!
Kylie knew Austin was the one after they had gone on their first date and he wasn't scared to come back after! She wasn't nervous to be herself around him. Austin is her built in best friend for life!
The Ring & The Proposal
Austin had everything planned out perfectly! The couple flew to New York the day after Christmas for a much needed break and two days later he proposed in Central Park! He even had a photographer following them the whole time and she had no clue!
Austin had picked out the ring while shopping. The sales associate had her try it on and Kylie's eyes lit up! She loved how it looked but when she saw the price tag she took it off. She tried on a few others and after they left the store, she confided that she loved that ring but she didn't want him to spend that much! Austin says he felt different because he wanted Kylie to have exactly what she wanted no matter what the price because she deserved it! He purchased the ring from Kay Jewelers!
Why Do You Love Them?
Austin loves Kylie because of who she is as a person. She is so challenge driven and they can put their heads together and go up against anything that this world has to throw at them! Kylie makes life easy! There is quite a bit of travel that comes with Austin's occupation and most people know that it takes a strong woman to deal with that aspect of the job! Kylie has been and always will be there for him when she knows how much he loves his job even though it makes sacrificing time away from each other! Austin can't wait to spend the rest of his life with her and see what the future has in store for them!
Kylie loves Austin because he is her absolute best friend! He is the most hard working man and will do absolutely anything for her! She knows they can face any challenge that life throws at them and she can't wait to be his wife!
Favorite Moment Together
Austin's favorite moment with Kylie was walking through Central Park with a ring in his pocket and a photographer behind them and thinking about how many brownie points he was going to get once he got down on one knee!
Kylie shares that every moment she gets to spend with Austin is the best but (obviously) her favorite was when he got down on one knee and asked her to be with him forever!
The couple has chosen "I Cross My Heart" by George Strait to share their first dance!
What Did You Love Most About Your Session?
"Allie was awesome! She captured every detail - even our horrible dance moves! I was worried that we wouldn't have enough time to hit every spot and make it out to the lake in time for sunset, but Allie knew exactly what she was doing and knew exactly what time to be where! Austin was the most nervous about seeing or stepping on a snake during our session! Every picture I have seen of Allie's have been beautiful! She pays attention to the close details! We can't wait for her to capture our big day! -Kylie Applebey
