Kristen and Kyle! by Colleen Schmidt

I've known Kristen since she was in grade school. She is one of my sisters best friends! I remember her as a little 8 year old girl and all the sleepovers and giggles between her and my sister (Kristen LOVES to laugh). Kristen and my sister stayed close throughout high school so I have literally watched her grow up. (I won't mention the punk phase--that I personally LOVED). Oops, I mentioned it. ;) Kristen has always been full of life and love and laughter. So it is no surprise to flash forward to today and see the gorgeous WOMAN she has become! 

Kristen attended THE Ohio State University where Kyle entered the picture. First of all, these two are just the cutest!! They met the FIRST weekend of FRESHMAN year, and have been together ever since. Talk about the definition of College sweethearts! 

Kyle and I met the first weekend of college at Ohio State. He overheard me complaining about my feet hurting from my heels and gave me his sandals to wear instead. We discovered we lived in dorm buildings next door to each other and quickly became best friends! Months later, on Valentine’s Day, he surprised me with a rose and chocolates after a fun night out with a group of friends. We’ve been together ever since!

SWOON! 

Most importantly, Kyle makes her laugh. He brings out this smile in Kristen that is just so genuine and happy! When I was photographing these two lovebirds it was so easy and carefree. They are just so naturally comfortable and so clearly in love.
We went to Allardale park in Medina and played with some golden light. It was gorgeous and awesome.
