“We held a 400 day Snapchat streak, and only about 12 of those days we were officially dating.” Blair recounted when I asked how she and Tanner met. “We both attended Mizzou as athletes; I was a gymnast and he was a thrower in track.” Tanner added, “We were in quite a few classes together, and most of our Snapchats had to do with helping one another with our homework, but I knew I was going to talk to her until she would let me take her out on a date.”
Tanner and Blair are both sweet as pie, but when they are together they are truly dynamite! Watching their lighthearted spirits and irrevocable chemistry unfold in front of my lens during their autumn engagement session in Mid-Missouri was absolute magic!
“Tanner proposed while we were on vacation in Iceland! We were out exploring one day and found this beautiful hiking trail on top of a waterfall. We liked it so much that Tanner said he wanted to go back at midnight to see it all again. Since it was their summertime, it was still light at midnight. When we came back that night, we decided to take a picture together. We have this weird thing that we like to do where we take a picture doing a yoga pose together in front of beautiful scenery. He set his phone on a rock to take the picture and told me to get in a yoga pose. While I was in my yoga pose, he got on his knee behind me!” -Blair.
Tanner and Blair both studied at Mizzou in Columbia, Missouri but currently reside in Texas. Tanner has began his career there, and Blair is in medical school to become a doctor. I felt pretty special that these two flew in all the way from Texas for their engagement session!
We ended their session in perfect fashion…literally. Tanner wore a handsome blue button up and Blair slipped into a gorgeous golden gown that fluidly swayed with her every movement. I had her twirling in her dress every chance I could! Even though it was extremely overcast for their session, this couple lit up the entire nature trail!
Tanner and Blair will become Mr. and Mrs. on November 2, 2019 at Heritage Ranch in Sedalia, MO. during what is sure to be a fun and gorgeous event! We’re counting the days!
Congratulations Tanner and Blair!
