Engagement Portrait Session by Paul Dyer

We had the opportunity to visit Shelley and Steven’s wedding website to learn a little bit about how they met.  I so enjoyed reading Shelley and Steven’s separate versions of how they met.  We are so excited for them and look forward to the wedding day!

“We love to eat great food! You name it, Dallas, San Francisco, Santa Fe, Denver, etc…wherever we go; it’s for the food and the wine. While there is certainly no replacing some of the meals we have shared, there is nothing better to me than having Shelley sit on the counter while I cook for us. More importantly, she loves what I make all the time! There has only been 1 dish in the last year she didn’t like…find a 4-star chef who can say that. But more importantly we talk and laugh, usually pop a great bottle of wine and get back to the basics of life. We share so many moments in the kitchen and there are so many more that we are looking forward to.” – Steven

“We got in my car and there was something he said that turned on a light switch in my brain. I specifically remember where we were on Greenville Ave. when I said to myself, “Oh. My. Gosh. I have a crush on Steven!”  I knew this was going to be something special. We came back to my apartment and literally stared at my Christmas tree and talked until 4am.” – Shelley

“By New Years we were “boyfriend/girlfriend”, and on our 5th date, I told him that I was going to fall in love with him. ” – Shelley

“I love that we come from different spectrums of life because we somehow grew to meet in the middle and that’s why we found each other.” – Steven

“People have asked me how I knew he was the one. And I’ve told them, “It’s not a choice that I consciously made… it’s just what happened.” – Shelley
