Diana and Levi’s Grand Mesa engagement photos had to be rescheduled earlier this Spring because our snowpack was just that intense all across Colorado. I’m glad we waited because were in for an absolutely divine sunset that evening. These two are getting married in just a couple weeks and I could not be more excited. They are just really relaxed, fun and casual people who love hanging out and having a good time. Almost all my clients claim to be nerds about something and these two are nerds about fishing. BIG NERDS. That’s why they wanted to do their photos up on the mesa. It’s where they love to go fishing and it’s not too far from Grand Junction, where they call home.
I met them at a bar where they were finishing drinks before we drove up and did engagement photos. They originally met over drinks when they found they had a mutual friend and ran into each other. So our first time meeting seemed ironically reminiscent. Diana is a registered nurse and Levi refurbishes and ships parts for Sprint. When I asked them early on in their booking process what they loved about each other Diana said, “My favorite things about Levi is that he loves the outdoors as much as I do. We do all of our favorite hobbies together and we share the same humor and beliefs. I love how tall he is and how he plays with my hair.” Levi gave an answer that made me laugh, “I like that she’s my fishing buddy. She’s kind of one of the guys, but also my girl. And her butt lol.”
Their idea of a great date would be a steak dinner, a couple of beers, and swing dancing. You’ll probably also notice just how big their height difference is too. Levi is 6’5 and Diana is 5’1. They love to laugh a lot about their height difference. I thought my husband and I had a big height difference with him being 6’5 and me being 5’4, but I had no idea. Still, I can relate to dating someone significantly tall.
I can’t wait to hang out at their wedding in just a couple weeks. I know it’s going to be such a good time with their friends, family, and hopefully some epic swing dancing!
