proposal on the beach in
Tamarindo
CostA Rica

Kelly + Ross

It all started as a dare from Ross’ friend four years ago. He told Kelly to pick anyone to go kiss, anyone. Kelly looked across the room, walked over to Ross, and kissed him…with a fake beard and all! After all, it was Halloween and Kelly was dressed up as the Fat Jewish, 100% committed to her costume with a full on beard! Four years later, it was Ross’ turn to surprise Kelly with a surprise proposal on the beach in Tamarindo Costa Rica. Kelly had a feeling that Ross might ask her during this vacation in paradise, but she was completely surprised that he waiting until the last sunset of their Costa Rica trip to ask Kelly to spend forever with him. Congrats you two!

First comes photography class, then comes a lifetime of photos together…

Jessie + Tanner’s love story began way back in high school when Jessie was a freshman & Tanner a junior. Because both of their last names started with “W”, they were seated next to each other in photography class. They both had significant others, but there was a spark — they’d innocently flirt, but once that semester ended, they went their separate ways.
