Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m Stephanie, a wedding photographer and educator based in Columbus, Ohio! I love sharing all of my recent shoots as well as wedding planning advice, tips and tricks for photographers, my handsome hubby, my fluffy puppy, and some of the behind the scenes of my business. I'm SO glad you're here! Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to take a look around!
Today I’m going to share one of our sweetest (but also funniest) memories together: the first time Michael and I said “I love you”…
Well… the first time Michael said I love you.
Let me explain.
A couple months after we started dating, Michael came up to the college campus I was currently attending. It was such a wonderful date walking around the pond on campus, having a picnic, and getting a break from all the work. Michael planned the whole date, and of course, it was another romantic gesture that swept me off my feet. :) He’s always been the romantic in our relationship.
After our lovely afternoon together, he gave me a quick hug goodbye and said “Love ya.” I started walking away… then realized what he had just said!
And I didn’t say it back. Oops!
To be completely honest, I hadn’t even thought much about it… Now you really know who’s the romantic at heart. And it’s definitely not me, ha!
I went home and frantically asked my sister: should I say it back again the next time I see him? Or just ignore it?? My sister lovingly assured me that it was okay, and to just let it go. For now. :)
Poor Michael! Months later when we talked about it, I found out that it totally slipped out on accident…he didn’t really mean to say it then!!
A couple months after this happened, we had a another beautiful date (that Michael also planned) that involved slow dancing, dinner, and a big hug where we both said “I love you” for the first time. This time, I said it back. :)
That’s the first time we, well Michael, said he loved me, and how I said it back. It cracks us up every time!! Oh, the joys of dating. :) We really giggle about it now that we’re married!
