I cannot say enough good things about this adorable couple! I'm so happy they picked me to be their Arizona wedding photographer. Their love and happiness is infectious and I was beaming with joy after photographing their engagement photos. They laughed, played, and had a great time. There was never a dull moment, and I could see that I had two people completely in love in front of my lens. Their love story is one of the sweetest. Scroll down to read how they met!
On September 11th, 2018, I went to the airport to see one of my friends, Caleb, come home from his mission from California. When I got there, I saw this really cute, really tall, well-dressed guy standing across the room. He looked familiar, I think I've seen him before and remembered that I have and his name was Justin. He and our friend Ben came over to me and everyone else and started teasing me, saying that I would marry Caleb. A couple of days later, we through a homecoming party for Caleb. Justin and I started talking more, flirting more. At one point of the party, we were on the ground, spinning my phone back and forth to each other, and I really wanted to ask for his number, so I put on the add contact page on my phone and spun it to him, thinking he would see it. But he spun the phone back. Then at that moment, I thought he didn't like me. But then he laid by me as a movie started, almost holding my hand, until he got a text,(I didn't know what it said), he then got up and sat across the room from me. When that happened, I was super confused. Did he like me or not?!? After that party, us and our friends hung out a lot. One night, we all were going to hang out, but my car wasn't wanting to start, so I asked on our group chat if anyone could come to pick me up. And Justin said that he could. So he picked me up, we went out with our friends, and when we got back to my house for him to drop me off, we stayed in his car, and the first thing he asked me was, "Is there anything you want to talk about?" That really stood out to me, so I told him what was on my mind. And yes I cried,, but he was listening and was there to comfort me. We talked for what felt like hours! We went from talking, to laughing, to playing a game of "What are the Odds," to crying from laughing so hard, to talking some more. We became best friends in one night. We ended up holding hands, and yes I admit, I made the first move, and we kissed. He took me on our first date a couple of days after that. The hardest part was that we didn't tell our friends we were dating for the first two weeks!! I don't exactly know why we didn't, but it was torture!! So we decided to drop hints to everyone. And eventually, everyone found out, and were happy for us! We've seen each other literally almost every day since our first kiss. Six months later, he proposed at the airport, where we first met. Now we are going to be married in July and live happily ever after, for time and all eternity.
On September 11, 2018, I was at the airport waiting for an old friend of mine, Caleb, to return home from his mission. Minutes before he arrived, this group showed up also waiting for his arrival. I noticed this girl with crazy curly hair standing amongst them. She was well dressed but, I noticed that she wasn’t wearing socks. Not that it was bad, I just noticed her ankles second to her hair. Every time I would glance towards her, I noticed her eyes were locked on me... every time I looked in her direction. We chatted for a minute at the airport but went separate ways after Caleb arrived. Later on, we ended up seeing each other again at Caleb’s homecoming party! And let me tell you, she was flirting Hard Core. Yes, I’ll admit, I may have flirted back ;). We hit it off really well!!! Long story short... after seeing each other almost every day for over six months, I proposed to her at the airport where we first met.
Aren't they the cutest?! I can't wait to finish the rest of their engagement photos, and I definitely can't wait until their wedding in July. Congratulations to Amber and Justin!!
