Alyssa & Curtis met when they were working as baristas at a Starbucks in their hometown. Love was in the air, along with the eye-opening aroma of fresh-ground coffee! They had so much in common: they both loved coffee and comedy, and it didn’t take long for them to realize they loved each other. Their manager and the people around them saw how much they clicked, although they were in complete denial. That didn’t stop their manager from playing matchmaker, and scheduling them together, especially for those romantic late-night shifts!
At last, after four years, a two year long-distance relationship, and a beautiful little yellow lab named Bailey, Curtis asked Alyssa to marry him. No matter what ups and downs life throws their way, all they want at the start and end of the day is each other and a cup of coffee.
We have so much more sweetness to share about these two, but the photographs from their engagement session say it all. Because coffee and baking are so important to Alyssa & Curtis, we started off their session in their new home with the perfect summer afternoon treat. We love the photographs of these two cuddling up on the couch together with coffee and books — and their puppies! And you’ll fall head-over-heels for the pictures of Alyssa & Curtis exploring Point Loma Nazarene University’s lovely grounds, from their sweet snuggles under the eucalyptus trees to their sunset kisses down by the water!
