Dustin moved to Roanoke for his job and a chance meeting later through a mutual friend, and the rest was history. Dustin and Katy are meant to be, and if you spend any time with them, you’ll know that. She brings him to life, laughing at his “not funny” jokes and he lights her up and brings her confidence unlike anything else. She’s at ease with him, and he’s found his home with her. Wherever their jobs take them, they’ll have each other and confidently build a beautiful life together.
I’m thankful to have reconnected with Katy (we went to high school together) and see her SO happy with a guy that makes her life, makes her feel like home and has provided a life for her so much so that she thanks the Lord for him every single day. A lot of their engagement was spent long distance as Dustin moved to Florida for a brief stint for a job – and they did a great job being long distance. Their communication grew, their love grew and they kept moving forward planning their wedding and figuring out their life together until Dustin landed a job to where he could move back to Roanoke to be with his bride.
Dustin and Katy chose Claytor Lake State Park for their engagement because they knew it had beautiful views: water, mountains, trees and everything in between. Not to mention, it was also fall when they took their engagement photos meaning there were so many beautiful colors. We had the perfect night – the weather was perfect, the bugs weren’t too bad and the light was just so beautiful. I love the way that the images turned out, especially capturing the way that Dustin and Katy look at one another. Also… Katy has the BEST smize ever!
