Michelle and I really got to know each other in 2018 when we started our physical therapy program. We had gone to the same undergraduate program and knew of each other, but didn't really speak until graduate school started. We instantly hit it off and had a strong connection from the start. We became best friends quickly, and started dating in January 2020. We dated for 2 years, and our love took the next step when I proposed on 2/21/22. We had driven out to a spot on Pensacola Beach, FL. There was a photographer taking photos of the landscape, and then he came over and asked if we would mind taking some couple photos. He then set me up perfectly to capture the moment, and the rest is history. We are so looking forward to getting married and seeing where things take us!
