Callie and Matt are two of my favorite people. It’s a fact. From the moment I met them at the Starbucks Coffee tucked sweetly on the corner of Lincoln and Wilson, I knew I had to work with them. And alas, here they are – playing in front of my camera at my favorite spot, Emerson Creek Pottery, with a natural ease that will have you wondering… have they done this before? ;)
These two have the kind of love story that one hopes to be able to relay to younger generations. It’s perfectly romantic – a story about pursuit and confidence. Assurance and readiness for what lies ahead. An an eagerness for the rest of your life to start as soon as possible, now that you’ve found the one. They met at the Kentucky Derby. Matt posted up across the room, eyes locking to Callie’s blonde hair and sweet nature. He couldn’t help but watch her and she struggled (so cutely) to fill up her beverage. This was his opportunity. He was drawn to her, and nothing could break his focus on the girl who, without speaking a word, had him sure that she was worth the confrontation. Within minutes he had her laughing (I can attest to the fact that he is one funny guy) and his decision to approach her was one of his best, yet. Then comes the moment we all hate – that moment when you meet someone who has this electric pull.. someone you don’t want to leave, but the reality that your friends are breaking off to the left, while his are breaking off to the right.. well, they might as well stomp on your heart in that moment and tell you that you just can’t have your cake and eat it too. Ain’t love grand?! But before he let her go, you of course know that a meet up was coordinated to happen in the very near future. After all, this was no ordinary conversation. This was the conversation that just opened doors that would soon change their lives. So with one last surge of confidence, he asked for her number.
And as if he wouldn’t remember the way he felt about her in this moment, just to be safe, he plugged in Callie’s name with a little somethin’ extra… Callie (Date Her) – now how’s that for a heavy dose of charm? ;)
Meet, Callie and Matt…
