They’d known one another since grade school. They hung out with the same circle of friends and had a wonderful friendship all through the years. Years of enjoying one another’s company extended into college, but at some point both felt like maybe there could be something more than friendship. For fear that if it didn’t work they would lose the amazing friendship that they’d established throughout time, Kyle pursued the idea although both wanted to. When Rachel got to college her sophomore year she immediately knew she wanted to start a new chapter with Kyle and see if they would work as a couple. It took one phone call and Kyle came to visit – and with that they were boyfriend and girlfriend – but ultimately, still wonderful friends.
They knew within months that this was forever, and Rachel anxiously awaited a proposal. Even though she knew the day would come eventually, she was still taken by surprise when on a Saturday while getting ready for a evening out and there was Kyle kneeling in their living room asking her to marry him. She choked out a yes through the tears and the two took the moment in – all alone in their living room – ready to start their next chapter.
Rachel & Kyle are planning a wedding for next May. Enjoy a few images from their engagement session!
