How We Met

We worked together.

How They Asked

We started dating May 2019, July 2019 I moved from Florida to California to do missions work. Doing long distance, we ended up winning a photoshoot with a photographer from Jacksonville who happened to be in San Diego for a week, the same week my boyfriend was visiting from Jacksonville. While she was taking our photos, we realized we had attended the same university in Florida. It was the first time had ever taken photos of us and such sweet memories to look back on our long-distance days. When Covid-19 hit I moved back to Jacksonville at the end of May. This past weekend Dean walked me down to my favorite park in Jacksonville, overlooking the skyline and St. Johns River. As we were approaching I noticed a picture frame on a stool standing on a beautiful rug overlooking the river- It was one of the photos from our photoshoot last fall with the San Diego photographer. While I was in complete shock of what was happening, I start crying and laughing and look over to see the same photographer from San Diego taking our engagement photos! It was the sweetest day with my best friend in the world who now gets to be my husband, and such a full-circle moment to bring our long distance to a hallmark end.
