WE MET THE WINTER OF 2012.
I taught piano all throughout high school and had been teaching his little brother piano all year. That night I was hosting a Christmas recital and Steven walked through the door with his parents.
Afterwards he introduced himself and we chatted for a split -second.
A few weeks later he started bringing his brother to piano every week!
It didn’t take long for our after-piano chats to continue through texting. After a few weeks of flirting we had our first date (soaking in the romance of Chilis.) We met at 6 and talked until they closed down at 11.
That’s when I think we started to realize this was going to be something special.

We had the opportunity to staff a youth retreat together (as the photographer team!) and that weekend completely changed our lives. During that retreat Steven says God revealed to him we were going to get married. I was completely wrapped up with photographing this entire retreat event of 300 people and wasn’t thinking about marriage. (haha!)
Shortly after that retreat we started dating. I don’t think either of us were prepared for the crazy, fun, adventure this relationship would take us on. We certainly had ups and downs but each new challenge led us closer to each other and closer to the God we serve.
We were married on May 25th 2018 and it was THE. BEST. DAY. EVER!!! Like, people always say that…but it seriously was. I think we were both walking on clouds the entire day.
