My Love Story - Part One
I met Nate through a mutual friend during the summer of my senior year of college at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point. I was going for a motorcycle ride (a secret love of mine, I have a motorcycle license and hope to own my own bike someday!) with my friend Corey, upon arriving at the house he was living in, I was greeted by five other guys who all lived in the house. One of these guys was Nate. Mid-way through our ride, Corey and I took a break, we started chatting and Corey mentions that his roommate thinks I am cute. Later that day, I start the social media creeping to find that this guy appears to have a girlfriend and I move on.
Months later, on a Friday night out, we bump into each at a local bar, Graffitis. When I say ‘bump’ we literally bump/run into each other on the dance floor. We got a drink, he walked me home, we chatted about constellations, and the rest was history. Lol Well not exactly, but that is how things started. The next day, I was waiting for a Facebook message, I finally received one in the afternoon that Saturday, we exchanged numbers and our conversation began.
Graduation for me was around the corner, Nate is a year younger than me and was heading home for the summer for work. I had landed my first full-time job at a local software company, Skyward, working in their marketing department. Nate and I continued our dialogue in the coming months, seeing each other on occasion. He invited me up to Door County with his family (which was terrifying since I had only met his parents once for a brief moment, and I had never met his sister and her long-term boyfriend), I agree to go with hesitation and excitement. They were all so wonderful and we had the most fun Christmas in July which has remained a tradition ever since. A few weeks later, mid August of 2014, we decided to make our relationship official. :)
More on our relationship in future blog posts. :)
Hello! I'm glad you are here.
I am an Appleton, Wisconsin-based photographer. I lean into my creative side when I shoot and love bringing out your personality during your session. To ramble off a few of the things that fuel my soul (other than my camera); clear night skies, snuggles with loved ones, the outdoors, sunsets, having genuine conversations with new people, and listening to audiobooks.
