When Anna first emailed me, we pretty much just talked in gifs from The Office and Parks and Rec, so I knew their Oahu engagements were going to be so fun! I absolutely love the story of how they first met, too! Wait for it… they met through their moms! You read that correctly – their wonderful mothers are to thank for their first date!
“I accompanied my mom to the vet one morning while I was home from college to help her with our two dogs. I did not want to be there because it was 7:30 in the morning and I was still on college time. However, the vet was very nice and asked me questions about school and my career. At one point she said, “Oh, you sound a lot like my son.” I thought nothing of that statement and went home and and forgot about it.”
Anna may have forgot about it, but her mom sure didn’t! One week later at the check up, Anna’s mom gave Mark’s mom her number. They originally went out as friends but “lunch turned into coffee, which turned into dinner, which turned into our parents wondering if we’d been kidnapped.” Awww! After years of long distance, they are chasing their dreams together here in Hawaii.
Side note, Anna told me they are just like Leslie and Ben from Parks & Rec. I could totally see them being this gif…
See for yourself how adorable they are in all of my favs of their Oahu engagements, and then say hello to book your own engagement session!
