I know, I know, this is kind of ridiculous, but after spending only a few hours with them, I love everything about Abbey and Matt. It took just a few minutes to be able to tell that they just absolutely love spending time with each together, and their happiness is infectious!
Matt grew up in Twin Falls, eventually moving to NYC for work, where he met Abbey, “We were both working at a video editing company in New York City and from the minute we met, we sort of became inseparable. Going to the movies, seeing live music, laughing our butts off, having honest conversations and talking until the wee hours of the night- I think we both knew from early on that we had found our person.”
They come to Sun Valley often and love to ski, so we chose Baldy as the location for their engagement session. In the year between when a couple books us and when their wedding happens, it’s super important to us to really get to know them. Engagement sessions are part of that process, and so is just hearing about who they are in their own words. Here is what Abbey and Matt said about them as a couple, “We both love to have fun and are unabashedly affectionate! We love to ski, dog-sit for our friends, cook up meals in our apartment (we love Spa night, which is short for Spaghetti!), watch movies (lots of movies!), see live music, travel and explore places we’ve never been, visit art galleries and get our culture on, go for coffee strolls, play the NY Times crossword, and go on adventures!”
…and here’s the sweet story of how they got engaged, “It was a freezing cold Saturday morning in New York. One of those beautiful winter days where the sun is shining but you can see your breath in the air. It was the morning after Abbey had a performance with her band (she is a singer-songwriter) and we set out through the village to get some much needed bagels with lox (a staple!) and coffee. With bellies full, Matt led Abbey into Washington Square Park where he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.”
Given how much fun I had doing their engagement session, I can truly say that I can’t wait for their wedding this summer at Galena!
