Anna & Ryan // Riverside // UCR Botanic Gardens

Anna & Ryan, were years in the making and well worth it.

They met while doing Children’s Theater, went to the same high school, took the same classes and belong to the same clubs; but they remained only  friends despite having mutual crushes on each other.

This story was put on hold while they each took their own path until faith would have them bumped into each other at a local coffee house and were now ready to date. They continue to date and even long distance for six years while Anna went to school in Boston and lived in New York where she did regional theater.

The years are trivial now since the journey brought them closer and what better place to do their engagement session than their hometown high school.
