After a week of severe thunderstorms and tornado sirens in Nashville, Katie & Drew were FINALLY able to have their Narrows of the Harpeth engagement session in Tennessee – and it did not disappoint! It blows my mind that you can get beautiful views with a cliff overlooking the river below just 40 minutes outside of Nashville. While some have a more traditional Nashville engagement session, Katie and Drew opted for a hiking adventure!
Katie and Drew will have been officially together 4 years this coming October ! They have known each other their entire lives (seriously since the diaper days) and conquered long distance for 11 months while Drew was on deployment 5,000 miles away. Although long distance can be incredibly hard, I love those couples that beat the odds since they can’t imagine life with anyone else.
