I worked with Chelsea for a couple of years, so it was such an honor to capture her engagement photos! Downtown Willoughby made for the perfect backdrop, with all of the old brick, twinkle lights, murals, and even an old train car!


Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

We first met in elementary school and kept in touch after High School when we briefly dated. 12 years went by and we ran into each other and started dating. The rest is history!


What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. What makes your relationship unique?

We have known each other for so long, almost our entire lives. We love to travel but also love being home with our kids. We have a lot of land and enjoy being outside, active and playing with our chickens!

How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?

I knew he was the one when I realized I couldn’t spend another day of my life without him. Probably when our daughter River was born. He is such an amazing Dad.


Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

It was NYE and I was sleeping on the couch. When the ball dropped he woke me up and was on one knee asking to spend the rest of his life with me.


We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

My ring was made by his uncle who is a jeweler in Chagrined a Falls.


Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?

We are excited, the whole thing is planned. Small and intimate is our vision.
