Courtney and Mackenzie

how we met

Mackenzie and I met at work. She is a police officer and I am a paramedic. We were answering a 911 call at a local women’s rehabilitation center and being as we are both females it was our responsibility to handle the call. I instantly wanted to know who she was and even tried peeking at her badge but could not figure out who she was for a long time! Eventually we ran into each other a few more times and then we were able to start talking over messenger. We moved in together after two weeks and now after two years I can’t imagine spending a night without her!

how they asked

Courtney proposed to Mackenzie on a surprise vacation to Captiva Island. Mackenzie had thought that they were going to use their vacation days to chill at home, she had no idea that they were even going to Florida. It wasn’t until they were on their way that Mackenzie even found out about the trip! Courtney had been planning for months to also propose on the trip. She worked with talented Naples, Florida event planner, Creative Eventology, to make the moment extra special. The planning team created both an area for Courtney to pop the question as well as a fun and romantic seating area for the couple to enjoy the moment. The Impressions Photography team was on hand to capture all of the emotions of this huge surprise and Mackenzie’s resounding “Yes!”.
