Cazi and Victoria’s engagement session was at the University of Kentucky Arboretum and Triangle Park in downtown Lexington, KY. We loved getting to know Cazi, Victoria and their two pups. The Arboretum has large beautiful gardens filled with rows of flowers. We had so much fun walking around the Arboretum and hearing all about Cazi and Victoria’s love story.
Victoria’s roommate played on a coed soccer team with Cazi. They had an overlapping friend group that ended up with a lot of UK tailgates at Cazi’s house. They never had a real first date because all of their friends were always hanging out together. They remember enjoying spending time together and having debates and conversations on all kinds of topics. They decided that their first date was the first time Cazi bought Victoria a hot dog for dinner at Costco. Together they love going for hikes, weekend trips traveling, trying new restaurants around where they live in Atlanta, and binge-watching their favorite Netflix shows on the weekend.
Cazi was so impatient and antsy to propose, one Monday morning at work he decided he had to do it that evening. After work, he had gone for a run to a nearby park. He called and told Victoria that he had hurt himself on his run and that she needed to come and pick him up from the park. In her head, she thought “a fake injury is definitely how Cazi would propose” but Victoria didn’t truly believe it was real. She got to the park and over the phone, he said he was sitting in the gazebo and that she would have to help him to the car. Victoria walked up to the gazebo and noted that Cazi was not wearing running shoes. Then she realized the gazebo was covered in lights and flower petals. Victoria had no idea what Cazi said in his speech before popping the question. She replied, “no you’re not!” And then said yes still in shock! The stone in the engagement ring came from Cazi’s grandmother. We can’t wait to capture more of their love story this fall at the Galerie in Versailles, KY!
