Lesley & Mike’s Boyce Thompson Arboretum engagement photos were so picturesque and romantic! These two are so sweet together and it was an honor to photograph them.
I asked them both to tell me about how they met:
Lesley: “We met for the first time at a small restaurant/bar. About half way through the date, I was getting vibes that Mike wasn’t interested. After about a total of four hours, we decided it was time to go, and he walked me outside and gave me a hug. He said a few things, but I didn’t really remember. Goodbyes are awkward, haha. When I got home, I just broke down and cried! I really really liked him, and it bummed me out that I didn’t think he felt the same way. He texted to make sure I was home, and it turns out HE thought I wasn’t interested in him! We are super lucky we cleared that right up otherwise we would’ve missed out on each other!”
Mike: “The, ‘He said a few things’ that she didn’t hear (it was noisy outside) was, ‘I had a great time tonight, we should do it again soon!’ She of course didn’t hear that, and so just said, ‘Thanks for the drinks.’ I remember walking back to my car trying figure out how a 4 hour date could turn into a ‘thanks for the drinks,’ when I said we should get together again. I spent the whole ride home thinking about it, and finally said screw it, I’m going to throw it out there again via text that same night. We still get a good laugh out of how it all played out when that story comes up.”
