We are so excited to share Jackie & Isaac’s gorgeous UC Davis summer engagement on the blog today! These two are just so adorable together it melts our hearts! When Jackie suggested that we do their session around the actual campus of UC Davis, we obviously said yes! We absolutely love shooting at the arboretum and couldn’t wait for the chance to play around the rest of the campus.
UC Davis is special to them because Jackie and Isaac first met almost a decade ago when they were both undergraduates at UCD. Jackie had actually been Isaac’s TA for a discussion section for their honors program. Even though they didn’t start dating then they would be re-introduced to each other not too long ago. Isaac remembered her, recalling that she was friendly and liked to wear flip-flops but Jackie didn’t remember him. Thankfully though that didn’t stop her from going on a date with him to a local Korean restaurant. On their first date they spent 3 hours just talking and enjoying each company and it definitely went well! For their second date, they talked until the restaurant closed!
If you’ve read our blog before, you know we LOVE hearing all about our couples proposal stories! Isaac actually proposed on Jackie’s birthday! It was just the two of them and he serenaded her with a song before he popped the question. It was a very simple proposal that didn’t skip on the romance. But this is our favorite part of their proposal story! When she first emailed us, Jackie had told us that she had been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma late last year. (She also let us know that she had found out she was in remission. YAY!) When we met with them Jackie had to gush about her fiance and how he would drive her to her appointments, cook for her when she didn’t feel the best, and just always be there for her when she just didn’t feel well. Y’all…they had us almost bawlin’ in the middle of the Starbucks! We always say that after our meetings with couples, we can usually tell why they’re getting married, and that is so true for these two! They are just so in love and beaming with joy. We can’t wait for their wedding next year!
