You could say it started because they both went to UCSB, although at different times. You could also say it’s because they fell in love with Santa Barbara, and decided they didn’t want to leave. But maybe it all started because they worked in the same building? Time is funny to think about sometimes. How you can miss one stoplight, or take four seconds longer to leave work one night and your entire world is changed. Whatever the reason was, it happened. And it led Emily & Jerry to start a relationship together over three years ago. They fell in love. He proposed. And Emily said yes! As they plan their wedding, we got the opportunity to photograph this sweet couple during their Butterfly Beach engagement session.
We love hearing our couple’s love stories from both perspectives. Seeing a smile form on her lips as he details what he thought when he first saw her. The way his eyes light up when she talks about how she had no idea he was going to propose. Her giggle when he says “I just knew” and “it was time”.
Emily & Jerry have one of those stories. Jerry knew he wanted Emily to be a part of his life forever, and he made it his mission to pursue her until she said yes. As they spent more time together they learned more about each other, and then Emily could see it too. They are meant to be together.
Emily & Jerry, thank you for choosing us to be a part of your love story. We are so glad you both decided to stay in Santa Barbara, and that you found your happily ever after in each other. Time is so interesting to think about. One choice can change your life in more ways than we can imagine. And we think that you both made the best choice when you said yes to forever, with each other.
