Juneau Alaska Engagement Session
Michaela tells us, “Justin and I met on a blind date on November 9th at BYU-Idaho. I was actually very sick and didn’t want to attend the date but was told by his brother that they would be at my apartment at 5pm to pick me up. It ended up just being a relaxing evening. Justin and I hit it off. Two days later he really hooked me when he took me out shooting and proceeded to tease me the entire time. After that we spent nearly everyday together just being silly and falling in love. It was always a new adventure. He became my best friend.”
What Michaela loves about Justin:
“I love the way that he is with his family, I spent thanksgiving with the Scott’s just a few weeks after we started dating and instantly knew this was an amazing man because of that love he showed for his family. I really love that he waited to kiss me. Justin made sure it wasn’t something that was expected, it was something special. I know that sounds silly, but I love that he is constantly considerate for everything. I love that he is able to handle me in all honesty. I can be quite a handful. I really love that he supports my dreams. Especially finishing college and opening a photography studio. I could go on forever about what I love about him, he is my best friend and I would never change a thing.”
What Justin loves about Michaela:
“I love her honesty, how she is very open with me about anything and everything. I love how selfless she is and the way that she cares about those around her. I especially love her eyes, and I love how dependable she is. I can always look to her to be there.”
Our Wedding plans:
“We are getting married on August 30! Just coming up. We are getting married in Bountiful, Utah at the LDS Bountiful temple. I love planning the little things for the wedding. We have the flies for flying fishing as the guy’s boutineers and broach bouquets for the girls. We love the cute little details that really show who we are as a couple such as cowboy boots for Justin, and XtraTuf Alaskan fishing boots for me. We have a little mix of both Idaho and Alaska. We are holding a reception a week later in his hometown near Boise Idaho. Then in December, we have an open house happening in my hometown in Alaska. We wanted something simple for the wedding, so we are doing exactly that.”
