A Pismo, California Dunes Shoot
How did you meet?
Chris: Steven and I met through a mutual friend that we had both known for years. She would constantly try to play matchmaker and we finally gave it a shot. From that moment on, we made seeing each-other and spending time with each-other priority until we starting dating.
Steven: We have a mutual friend that was trying to get us together and eventually it happened. We got together for happy hour at TGIF. I knew by the way he took that first shot of tequila that I was never letting him go.
What is the best quality about the other person?
Chris: My favorite quality in Steven is his sense of presence. He makes you feel like you are the only person in the room by paying attention and showing interest in you. Even when he is not around there is still a strong sense of closeness to him.
Steven: His happiness is so infectious. Everyone around him can’t help but love him and have a good time.
What is the best thing that your significant other has taught you?
Chris: I truly believe Steven has taught me a lot in our relationship. However, I think the best/most important thing he continues to teach me is positivity. No matter the situation you can always count on Steven to point out the positive. I think this quality has rubbed off on me since starting our relationship.
Steven: He taught me what it is to be in love. He is the only person I have ever been with in my entire life and the only person I have ever loved.
What do you most look forward to in the future with your significant other?
Chris: What I look forward to the most is our life together. This is something I have been able to envision from early on in our relationship. To reach our individual and relationship goals side by side.
Steven: I look forward to waking up everyday to his face. The dream is to build and have a home together.
Tell us a bit about your love shoot! What made you decide to do a love shoot? Where did the style/design inspiration come from?
Both: It was on a whim! The thought of capturing our love on film made us too happy. We wanted a shoot at our favorite spot, where we are the happiest with each other.
