Kelsey + Matt | Engaged

Kelsey and Matt met while both attending college for nursing.   Kelsey’s best friend played volleyball at the same school Matt played baseball at. So when Kelsey mentioned the cute guy across the room, Alexis awkwardly called him over to introduce him to Kelsey.

After dating for a while they decided they needed a little getaway from all the stress of nursing school and headed to San Diego for a getaway.  As they were sitting on the beach enjoying the ocean, Matt said to Kelsey, “I have something for you.”  Then he handed her a photo album filled with pictures from over the last 6 years that they had been dating.

As Kelsey was flipping through the pages and reminiscing, Matt had grabbed the engagement ring out of his bag. When she looked back at him he was down on one knee with the ring in hand!

After graduating nursing school, started new careers, realized they weren’t happy in those careers, deciding to pick all their stuff up and move to California and try to plan a wedding has been super stressful to say the least.  So Mike and I were super excited to get to share some time with them in California last week.  We started their engagement session in Charmlee Wilderness Park.  It was such a beautiful view of both the coast and the mountain range.  Then we headed down to El Matador Beach.  You guys!! Mike always takes us to Orange County but Malibu was so incredible!  We definitely have a new favorite spot!  Kelsey and Matt, we are so excited for your new adventure and we can’t wait for your wedding!  Enjoy a few of our favorites from their session!
