Engagement:: David + Amber

When she first met him, she thought he was cute. When he first met her, he thought she was nice. Even as Amber crushed on him full force, he was clueless. Even through thumb wrestling, tickle fights, and hand holding, David was still completely blind to the obvious vibes that Amber was throwing his way. You see, I've known Amber since I was 14; and if there is one thing that Amber is not, it's subtle. She's a full force, says it how it is, quirky kind of person. And David? Well David's.....not. David is laid back, relaxed, and confident in who he is. But throughout their relationship first as friends and then as something more, one thing that David valued most in Amber was that he could be himself. There was no show to put on, no wall to hide behind. It was easy with her.
FInally, when they got together to talk things over, Amber went through months of feelings and reasons why she liked him and David just listened; taking things in and realizing that this woman sitting next to him knew who he really was. He couldn't hide anymore, and the best thing was that he didn't have to hide anymore. It was clear to him. But not as clear to Amber as she found out they were dating through a Facebook relationship change and lots of texts and calls from friends.
So this February they're going to walk down the aisle and say promises to each other which mean eternity. I've been honored to know Amber for almost 10 years and I am so happy to be able to share this experience with her and David. I promised Amber years ago that she deserved someone amazing and that God was preparing him for her. And He did, and David is. Congratulations you guys, I had such a blast taking pictures with you both and I am so happy to be sharing this time with you. :)
