Happy Valentines ! I'm super excited to share this post with you! 
Let me just say that shooting with either Mckenzie or Greg Deakins is always a BLAST! Both of them are super talented and they are basically an amazing power couple!

When I booked this shoot, I knew Chris and I were going to be McKenzie's models during her photo class. At first I was a bit afraid for Chris because I wasn't sure if he would feel comfortable with a group of people taking our picture vs one photographer, but it is literally impossible to not feel comfortable or laugh uncontrollably when shooting with McKenzie.  He was so sweet to let everyone shoot him (haha, shoot him) and not once did he complain. Talk about a supportive boyfriend.

Drumroll......................... yup! Boyfriend! What better time to introduce him?! 

Our friends and family have known from the start but we thought it was time to share it with everyone else. 

Chris and I met 8 years ago at American Fork High during our senior year. We dated for most of our senior year. After highschool Chris and I broke up. He left for two years to serve an LDS mission, and I moved on and met someone new.

I married and unfortunately my marriage did not work out. After almost 5 years of marriage, we amicably concluded the marriage.

Late last Fall, a mutual friend invited us to be a part of a fun project and video. Happy to do it, I showed up; started filming; and little did I know that Chris would be at the same video shoot. After a couple of hours of shooting, the cast & crew went out to dinner. Trying to play it super cool, {As he puts it} Chris asked for my number that same night and invited me on a lunch date to catch up. That intentionally casual lunch date was quickly followed by a dinner date that same night! After that night we saw each other everyday and soon after we were official.

We are so thankful for all the wonderful wishes, love, and support we have received for our new relationship.
