It all began freshman year of college when they saw each other and their lives changed. In that moment, a new journey began with a hometown friend that would someday bring unknown, immense joy.
Shelby’s the kind of girl who knows exactly who she is, and she does whatever it takes to make each new day as bright as she believes it can be. Mark knew exactly what he was doing when he met Shelby. He was inviting a girl full of spunk, excitement, compassion, and smiles into his storybook, which has become full of beautiful tales: early mornings searching for the perfect wave, holding each other tight as the melodies of a Coldplay concert fill their hearts, and long road trips where Shelby belts Rascal Flats lyrics to the tone of Mark’s rocking air guitar.
Mark’s the kind of guy who stays true to his word, no matter what. Mark knows what’s important to him and he does it. And when he looks at Shelby, time pauses because Mark’s heart for Shelby is larger than anyone could ever know.
This sunny, beach town, engagement session is full of deep laughs and still moments when Mark and Shelby have the chance to pause, go for a walk together, hold hands, and giggle like they just met each other.
