PITTSBURGH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I’ve been really excited about this story on Love Series. This couple is super special to me as I’ve known them for a few years now. I’ve photographed their engagement session, their beautiful wedding, and every year I get to see them for fall photos. Seriously, a couple who actively gets updated professional photos every year is my favorite kind of couple! On top of all of this, they send me a Christmas card every year as well. I just love them.
This story is additionally special because it is through Justin’s words and this is actually a surprise to Abbey!! Justin reached out to me last month and said he wanted to tell their love story here to surprise Abbey. Isn’t that the sweetest thing, ever?!? Be jealous, girls! So here they are, Abbey and Justin, through Justin’s words:
HOW THEY MET
We actually started our journey online, and I instantly smiled after seeing Abbey’s profile and knew I wanted to see where it would go. I reached out to her with a message and was very lucky that she responded. I do have to admit to not knowing what I really wanted at that time and being slightly scared, but after talking for a few months to get to know each other a little more we met for the first time on a cold February day at Heinz History Center. It was as if you were meeting your best friend again for the first time. We hit it off right away and continued right where we had left off and learning more about each other as the afternoon progressed. I never really paid attention to any of the exhibits on our walk around, I was just enamored with talking to her and finding out as much as I could. The date ended with a perfect lunch and a goodbye hug.
HOW/WHEN THEY FELL IN LOVE
I knew I was in love with Abbey a week later after we had met at the movies and saw Silver Linings Playbook. We had parked relatively close to each other and it was one of the snowy evenings in Pittsburgh. I remember the large flakes started coming down and I leaned in and kissed her for the first time and I instantly knew she was the one for me forever.
Abbey will always say she fell in love with me after our first date. That I was a perfect gentleman and we had a great connection/friendship right off the bat. She told me once that she let all her friends know right away how amazing I was and she fell for me then and there.
HOW THEY CONNECT
We share many of the same interests, hobbies and viewpoints, so we always have a strong connections thru those. We are homebodies, so we enjoy staying close cuddling up on the couch, talking about our days, our thoughts on things going on in our lives and on the news. Our big thing is that we just love to be together and with each other, that keeps the bond strong and growing. We already have the strong love foundation, but there always work to be done on keeping the marriage strong and we both actively work on communication and maintaining our love and friendship for each other.
Thank you for sharing your love story, Justin! If you are reading this and thinking, I want to share MY story! Well, then, reach out and tell me all about it!! Email me directly at AmandaBriscoPhotography@gmail.com and let’s share some love!!
