Christopher and I met back in December 2006 at a local bar and grille we were both working at. He was just out of college with his engineering degree and working as a cook in the kitchen and I was working on my degree while waitressing. My first day one of the other cooks said “The new girl’s here”, he snuck out of the kitchen to sneak a peek and thought “hmm, the new girl’s cute”. It took a little badgering to get me to go out with him, but February 19th 2007 that man stole my heart. And 7 1/2 years later we made it official! As a wedding photographer {me} and an Electrical Engineer, we are very opposite in most ways. But we love goofing around, playing with our Border Collie baby, and playing golf.

It’s always been a known fact that I had childhood aspirations to be a mermaid when I grew up, the ocean has always been a part of my life. I can’t explain the feeling I have when I’m in the sea, I feel instantly calm, safe, and like I’m complete. Like I’m meant to stay there. The only time I’ve ever felt that outside of the ocean was with Christopher. It’s how I knew he was the one for me.

We’re really private people, and while I’m a super extrovert, I really wanted our wedding to be just us. It’s always been just us. He IS my family. I didn’t have someone to walk me down the aisle, so Christopher ran up to the beach access gate and walked with me to the place we would be married. Because he’ll never let me walk alone. And he never has.
