Shelby & Mike

The whole vibe of Shelby and Mike’s engagement shoot was very chill and a relaxed time with occasional moments of just sitting back and watching surfers casually longboard in from the point break.

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

Mike and I met in college at the University of San Diego, though we didn’t start dating until a couple weeks before graduation. Fast forward five plus years, and we’re engaged!

Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

 Mike proposed when we were both in my hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. He was there for work, and I decided to tag along so I could see my family who still lives there. He was in touch with my parents and older brothers trying to figure out a good spot to do it. We were walking to dinner downtown along the canal, and that’s where he popped the question! I was very surprised and very, very happy.
