Machine Shop Engagement Session | Dana and Zach

I am so excited to share this Machine Shop and Stone Arch Bridge engagement session with you today! This couple makes my heart so happy. When I look at Dana and Zach’s pictures it truly makes me want to cry tears of joy. I personally know this couple and have seen them grow together. Their love and affection towards one another is absolutely beautiful! 

Machine Shop Engagement Session

Dana and I have been in each other’s lives since preschool. We went to Jesus Loves Me together, dance class (thank goodness I stopped dance because I am not the greatest HAHA.), elementary school, switched elementary schools, middle school, high school, and split for one year of college, but ended back up at the same college sophomore year, and became college roommates until our senior year. As you can tell Dana and I have gone through all stages of life together and I could not be more thankful!

In college, Dana and I frequently went to the Planet Fitness gym at 5:00 in the morning… I know we are crazy HAHA. Sometimes we would go there, be too tired and just sit in the massage chairs HAHA…so much for working out. But there was a Planet Fitness worker that we would see every morning, which was Zach. This was the first time Zach and Dana laid eyes on each other. I guess our 5:00 a.m “workouts” paid off in the long run because these two will be getting married in October of 2021. 

I truly believe everything happens for a reason and God planned everything accordingly for these two to be together. They are soulmates.

Here is another engagement session!
