We’ve only just met, and I’ve already fallen head over heels for Jessie and Diedrich. Meet them, and you’ll feel like you’ve known them for ages. I love how natural and playful these two are together! They’re both so expressive (especially Jessie!) — but in the end, every expression dissolves into fits of wonderful belly laughter. The also share a love for the outdoors, which is perfectly suited to the lovely setting of their engagement session, at Old Park Mill at Roswell Mill.
I’d love for you to get to know them. So I’ll leave the telling of the rest of their story to them…
“We met at the retirement party for Jessie’s dad. (Diedrich and Jessie’s dad had already worked together for 5 years prior to Jessie and Diedrich meeting. Both heard about each other from her dad, but didn’t meet until the party.) We hit it off right away, and had our first date 1 week later.”
“Among the many things I love about Diedrich are his caring nature, his smarts, his sense of humor, his playfulness, and his genuine support of who I am, my dreams and aspirations — to name a few. To sum him up: Diedrich is a big tall man, with a huge heart. He loves deeply, and when he’s passionate about someone or something, he gives it his all. Overall, we make such a great team. When it comes to splitting responsibilities or working together to resolve something, we do it so seamlessly. We step in when one of us needs help; we push each other when one of us needs a prod; we encourage each other when one of us needs a lift, and we will always keep each other young.
“I’ve never met someone who makes me laugh as much as he does; when it comes to banter, we’re exceptionally strong! Even on our very first date, I felt comfortable with him. I remember at the end of our first date feeling like I’d known him for years. This could be because I had heard about him from my Dad for years prior, but I felt a deep connection to Diedrich right from the get-go. It was the beginning of a new story that involved the two of us. Now 3 years later, I can’t wait to see what the rest of our lives have in store for us.”
“Jessie makes my heart skip a beat when she walks into the room. She helps me remain grounded when the stress of work starts to take over. And she’s very compassionate about her work and family life. Beyond that, she’s supportive of my thoughts and ideas even when they may not be the best. She brings out the best in me and makes me want to become a better man.”
