“Myra + John have always been drawn to Savannah’s whimsical charm, so when they found out I would be in the area for a weekend, they traveled eight hours round trip to have their engagement photos taken in the city that holds so much sentimental value to them. We took these light and airy destination engagement photos in different locations in downtown Savannah, capturing the coastal vibes and cheerful spirit of the “hostess city of the south.” Beginning with photos under the iconic Spanish moss this southern city is known for, we ended the session in front of the beautifully colorful homes that decorate Savannah’s downtown streets.” – Photographer, Catherine Milliron
Myra and John’s Engagement Story
John and I have been dating since 2015! We met through Greek life at Columbus State University. We first met at a Greek life mixer and a few times after that. I realized that I found myself always laughing and smiling in his presence and that hasn’t changed six years later! I was smitten. John makes me laugh uncontrollably and has a heart of pure compassion for everyone around him. He is the perfect rock that keeps my stubborn passionate personality grounded. After graduating, John moved to Atlanta GA for work and I stayed in Columbus. We did 2 years of long distance. Though no one likes long distance, it taught us the importance of making each moment together count and how to communicate with one another. During this time, we got two adorable dogs, Lambeau (Go Pack Go!) and Brody. In the middle of COVID, we realized we couldn’t waste anymore time doing long distance. I started applying for jobs in Atlanta, and mid-summer of this year John asked me to marry him!! With Lambeau and Brody by our sides, he got down on one knee and I said yes to forever! He proposed in the city that we met, Columbus, in front of the beautiful fountain at Columbus Iron Works.
