Jerrica & Matt. Reno High School Engagements.

It all happened because Jerrica isn’t very tall. Yes, you read that right. At the basketball state championship, Jerrica was having a hard time seeing what was going on..so she switched seats & asked a tall guy if she could sit where he was sitting. He obliged & as they began chatting, they realized that they had a few classes together at Reno High School…and they have literally been inseparable ever since. Jerrica & Matt have been dating since High School-they have spent years together, falling in love & having THE BEST time together. After years of being together, Matt took Jerrica to the same stadium where they first met & on the basketball court he asked her to be his wife. She said YES!!!! After she accepted his proposal, Matt & Jerrica’s family & friends came down into the basketball court to congratulate them. Doesn’t Matt get 5 gold stars for turning the proposal into a party? I sure think so.

We had such a fun time at their engagement session…and since they began dating while they were at Reno High, we thought it would be fun to meet up there for their engagement session. I am so lucky to have such fun, amazing clients like Jerrica & Matt who make my job so fun! We had a great time exploring areas of Reno High that I hadn’t been to in years & we ended up by the Truckee River to finish things up. AND then we got slurpees together to wrap up the fun photos! Jerrica & Matt are a completely darling couple who is so in love, even after all these years. You can truly sense they joy they feel when they are together…and I know they are going to live an amazingly happy life together! That said, I literally cannot wait for their wedding next year! Here are my favorites from their session!

Hands down this is my favorite…

But this comes in at a very close second…

Who knew that the back parking lot of Reno High School has such AMAZING light?

After I was done with their photos, I had put my camera away & then I realized how amazing the clouds were. I asked them if they wouldn’t mind shooting just ONE more…and I’m so glad they agreed!
