Theresa & Matt :: Engagement in Seal Beach

What can I say about these two?! They are two of the sweetest people I've ever had the pleasure to meet, let alone photograph! These lovebirds are high-school sweethearts, even thou they went to separate high schools, her at St. Josephs and him at St. John Bosco. It all began when he asked her to be his girlfriend at the end of their junior year! Could that be any cuter?! Ah, remember young love?? Matt finally popped the question during a Vegas trip, 2 days after Theresa's birthday in 2010.

I'm trying a little something different...I'm asking couples to put into their own words how their relationship began, what made them fall in love, and a special story the two of them share! And, I have to say, I was thrilled this morning when I read their comments this morning in my email!

She says: I knew Matt was the one for me when I figured out how much he truly cared for me as a person. I fell in love with his big, generous heart and the way he always made me smile. He was always there for me and would travel the distance to see me and watch me play my favorite sport, soccer, on a weekly basis. He was able to bring out the best in me and able to make me a better person.

He says: Theresa was always able to put a smile on my face whenever I saw her and thought about her. She believed in me and was able to treat me in a special way that no one had before. She was always supportive and encouraging and always had the right words to say. She was able to bring out the adventurous side of me allowing me to do the things that I probably would have never done if she wasn't there.

Theresa's favorite story: One of our favorite stories was when we went to Hawaii and went sky diving. I, Theresa, had to talk Matt into it. The only reason why he went was because he said he didn't want to "look like a sissy". I thought that it was romantic as we got to experience our first jump together.

Matt's favorite story: When we had gone white water rafting for about our 3rd trip and Theresa was tell everyone in our raft how no one has ever fallen out. Just as she had finished the story we hit a small rock in the river (we had just started our day on the river) and she falls in the rapids. We just love being outdoors and being adventurous.

Since Matt is an avid golfer, they choose Old Ranch County Club in Seal Beach as the location for their engagement pictures. Their reception will be there in June as well, and I can't wait to shoot them again on their big day!
