the story of
and engagement photography in Topeka
She couldn’t have tried harder not to meet him.
Never mind that her friend thought they’d be great together. Brittany Nixon wasn’t interested in dating anyone – nor was she keen on going to a softball game that evening in March 2012 that ended up changing everything.
Fortunately for her, she didn’t get her way – although by the time she and her friend arrived at the game, it was over. All that was left to do was sit in the stands and chat, which is where Josh Lilly found her for the first time.
Neither realized the other was the one their mutual friend had talked up in her matchmaking efforts. Nor did they realize, by the time they went their separate ways that night, that they’d just met The One.
But they did see the spark that existed right away and that would carry them through the early months of this unexpected relationship, which started just two weeks before Josh was to leave for basic training in San Antonio. Prior to his departure, he told her he wanted her to be his girlfriend but didn’t want to ruin her summer by making her wait for him.
“But if you’re dating someone when I get back, I’ll fight for you,” he promised.
He asked her to write him, and she agreed, sending him a letter nearly every day they were apart. She asked him to save her letters, and when he returned, she put them in a notebook alongside his to her – a keepsake of the start of their story, which is set to lead to a wedding on April 16, 2016.
Brittany and Josh: I can’t wait to witness that all-important day and capture more of your sweetness with one another! Having seen you together for this session, I can already envision how beautiful it will be.
