She was in a bad mood and decided to set up a dating profile as a joke - even though she knew she wasn't interested. At first it was all completely sarcastic (it's her most fluent language), but when he messaged her, Chrissy knew he was different than all the rest.

Erik ended up joining the same Christian dating site and decided to expand his search to include more than his current location. Chrissy immediately caught his attention, and it wasn't long before the two were sending pages upon pages back and forth daily - even though they lived hours apart. When they met in person for the first time, Chrissy was won over by the way Erik could make her laugh like no one else... and it didn't take long for Erik to be completely smitten with her gorgeous smile and playful personality! 

Once you know... you just know, so why wait? Chrissy and Erik decided they'd waited long enough to spend forever together and I can't wait to photograph their wedding in July!! YAY!! 

Since Erik was visiting for a brief weekend, we decided to make a last minute engagement session happen... and I'm SO glad we did!

We woke up at the crack of dawn to get in their sunrise session....

And it was so cold that I made them cuddle a whole bunch! :)

Chrissy's style is the perfect blend of classic and country, and I loved the outfits she put together for the two of them - the morning of our shoot, no less! (Yay procrastinators, Chrissy!)

Even though they were quite frigid, these two made it seem as though they were professional models!!

Chrissy, you have SUCH an amazing laugh! :)

Long distance relationships can be so difficult at times (Sunil and I remember that well!) - but I am so so thankful that they'll soon be together for the rest of their lives! 

Erik and Chrissy, THANK YOU so much for allowing Sunil and I to spend a few precious hours with you! I am so so excited to photograph your wedding in New Jersey and I can't wait to see what your adventure holds! We love you guys! :)
