Kyle and Grasan

How We Met

We met in 2012 through a mutual friend in NYC and we were both in very different places in our lives. We met as friends but there was something magical about Grasan- something that I couldn’t really put my finger on at the time. He truly captivated me… I was so intrigued by him.

Cut to 2017… He lived in NYC and I lived in LA. I knew at this point we were both single and I convinced him to come, visit me in LA. He was supposed to stay with me for 3 days. He extended his trip and 3 days turned into 1 week and 1 week turned into 2 weeks.

The entire first year of our relationship was long distance. He was in NYC and I was based in LA but also traveling to Europe for work. The long-distance was really hard, but oh so worth it. I think beginning our love long-distance really forced us to effectively communicate and listen to the needs of one another.

How They Asked

Grasan planned what I thought was just a fun couples photoshoot together at our favorite beach! It was truly beautiful and after the sun had finally set… I was like… Ok, I think we got the shot… Can we eat nachos now?!?! And he said… There is one more nook over here that I really love and want to take some photos in- and that’s where it happened!
