This darling White Rock Lake engagement session from Meggie Taylor Photography has us itching for summer, sunlight and sweet nights with the ones we love! Says Meggie about this gorgeous couple: “Hayden and Kristen are high school sweethearts and best friends. They love being outdoors and exploring so they thought the perfect place for their engagement shoot would be White Rock Lake. Kristen wore a beautiful powder blue gown which perfectly accented her light eyes.” With the sunset reflecting off the water and the Dallas skyline in the distance, this is a go-to Dallas engagement spot location, and it’s obvious why! We love a good high school sweetheart story, too – read on below for theirs! Cheers to these soon-to-be newlyweds!

How they met: “We met in high school when we worked at McAlister’s Deli together! He started tickling and flirting with me, and I actually messaged him first on Facebook to get his number. The rest is history. I’ll never forget the time his grandpa came into the restaurant to visit and told Hayden that I had ‘sexy eyes,’ before he even knew that we were interested in each other.”

How he proposed: “He proposed to me on August 19, 2017! He took me on a private plane ride over the Dallas skyline, which was so beautiful. I was a little scared because the plane was shaky and small. When we landed, he blindfolded me and walked me into the lobby of a small executive airport. I took off my blindfold off, and he was down on one knee with flowers. Our entire family was there to support, and his mom and stepfather flew in from Florida. He got so nervous when he was popping the question – he’s such an outgoing guy, and it’s the only time I have ever seen him that nervous. It was so cute! Our families went out to eat afterward.”
