We laughed a lot during this outdoor engagement portrait session in Boulder with Cat and Eric. Cat braved “off roading” on uneven ground with high heels next to a creek. No one was harmed in the making of these photographs ;), no one fell into the water either. Eric was a gentleman and made sure she was on solid ground and had a good partner to hold onto.
They shared the story of how they met. Their story is one of the most unlikely situations I’ve heard of bringing two people together. The thing that sparked interest in each other was the love for a webcomic called Questionable Content.
Due to a few a few comments and retweets around this webcomic they found themselves following each other on twitter. They followed each other for two years while they were in different countries, Cat in Canada and Eric in the US.
After two years and many hilarious tweets between the two of them they found that they had a crush on each other and wanted to meet in real life, so they did. They stayed friends for a while and then a year or so later ended up moving to the same city, Boulder Colorado.
During the 2017 solar eclipse Eric got down on one knee and proposed with the words “since we’re doing once-in-a-lifetime things today…” and the rest is history.
These two were adorable together. They couldn’t stop laughing at one another. Eric would make crazy eyes to his lady cracking her up and then they both would start laughing. The joy between them was so fun to see and be part of.
Cat and Eric, thanks for including me in this celebration of a fun life changing moment. Its such an exciting time and I’m so glad that I was able to document it for you two. I’m excited to share in taking more photographs for your wedding in December and share in your story of 7 years in the making with travels, webcomic fandom, moves and now starting a new life in Boulder!
