Jenny + Michael are such a sweet couple! Even in front of the camera you can tell how comfortable they are together and how much love they have for one another! Their engagement session was so easy and fun to shoot, and we were able to talk to Jenny afterwards to learn more about their relationship and plans for the future!
Q: How did you and your partner meet?
A: “Michael works with two of my best friends. He mentioned to them that he wanted a relationship, but was having trouble finding a “nice girl.” They gave him my number and he asked me out! We met for drinks a week later and hit it off right away. I really loved that he was already friends with some of the people closest to me and he fit in so easily with our group. It felt from the very beginning like he had always been a part of my life, and now he always will be!”
Q: Is there a moment in your dating history that stands out above the rest?
A: “There are so many moments and memories that are special to me, but the night we said “I love you” for the first time stands out. Michael had to go to Spain on business for about four weeks when we were a few months into dating. It was hard and I missed him so much! I guess the saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder” is true, because about half way through that trip I knew I was in love with him. The night after he got home, we went to a Dave Matthews Band concert. I remember dancing and looking at him and feeling so happy that I couldn’t help myself! I told him I loved him and his response was “I love you more.” I’ll never forget that!”
Q: What did you love most about your engagement shoot? Your photographer?
A: “To be honest, I was anxious for our engagement shoot. I was worried we would look and feel awkward in the photos and that I wouldn’t like how they turned out. However, I was so happy and relieved with how everything went! Shain was amazing and did such a great job of encouraging us and putting us at ease. We laughed and chatted and had so much fun! And from what Shain showed us on his camera, the photos turned out great!! We are so excited to work with him again for our wedding.”
Q: What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?
A: “We are so excited for our wedding day for so many reasons – the food, the dancing, the time spent with family and friends. But mostly I am excited just to marry Michael and express to him publicly how much I love him and how excited I am for the rest of our lives. It can’t get here quickly enough!”
Congratulations Jenny + Michael!! xoxo, The OLAS Team
