“I could be in the middle of a desert about to be eaten by a lion and I’d still feel safe, as long as I’m in his arms. He understands and supports all of my craziness. Like the fact that I can’t stand my feet touching wet grass, so he just carries me over it. I love that we can sit for hours and talk about anything at all from that one basketball player that got injured or fantasy football to what matches better with this top for Friday night or the bachelor is starting on Monday! He was my best friend before we even liked each other and he will always and forever be my bestest friend!” – Chelsea
I had the loveliest afternoon photographing Chelsea and Gabriel’s engagement session at Matheson Park this past week. This park has become quite popular amongst everyone I’ve been shooting and scheduling and its no surprise because the oak trees are just gorgeous. I love exploring the park even on days I don’t have a photo shoot scheduled because I always find a new angle than the visit before. Chelsea and Gabriel are so comfortable with one another that regardless what it was I would ask them to do they found a way to make it theirs. And even if it meant that Chelsea couldn’t keep a straight face and she would hide her eyes with that big happy smile of hers. I can already picture her as a bride come April anxiously awaiting the moment she will see Gabriel on the other end of the aisle… trying not to cry herself but hoping that he is having a full blown waterworks moment. The kind of moment that all of us brides hope for. ( No pressure Gabe.) I am so excited for you guys and can’t wait for that day to arrive!
“When we first met I automatically felt drawn to her and felt a level of comfort I never felt with anyone. We became best friends in no time and before I knew it I was already in love and couldn’t help it. Her smile is something that melts my heart in a way nothing else does. I love how she listens to any nonsense I come up with and how we can laugh together at literally anything. With her I feel like I can do anythjng in this world.. Even go to Australia!” – Gabriel
