Susie and Darren

Engagement 03

How We Met

Darren and I met in 2009, really in the most unlikely way! He was living in California and I was living in Ohio. He had always dreamed of becoming a Buckeye and came to visit the campus and a friend of his who I knew as well. This was when we first met. I knew instantly this guy was perfect for me! We decided to try a long distance relationship and I am so glad we did! Our senior year of high school we flew back and forth for breaks and school dances. It was a blast! He was accepted into Ohio State’s architecture program and finally moved to Ohio! He has lived here ever since and it has been the best 6 years of my life! I cannot wait to spend many many more years with this guy!

How He Asked

June 21, 2016 is one of the best days of my life! My boyfriend of 6 1/2 years got down on one knee and proposed to me on the beach in front of so many of my favorite people! We were in the Outer Banks with my family and that evening we had planned to do family portraits with the whole group. Darren picked the perfect time for it to happen. The sun was setting and the waves were gorgeous. I was completely surprised! My sister (@embeechapp) captured the entire moment! As a wedding photographer myself, I always dreamed of this moment. I cannot wait to start planning my own wedding now- we are so excited it is our turn!
