Our Love Story
Most people have interesting love stories when it comes to how they met their spouse, and mine is definitely one of those stories! Today is our first met anniversary, or as I call it, First Metiverary. =) So I hope you enjoy this love story of Zack Kelly and Megan Kelly.
It all started with photography. I am not kidding when I say photography gave me everything! I was in a photography class at Brigham Young University-Idaho, and this class travels to Bannack, Montana every semester. Bannack is this old ghost town with amazing abandoned buildings and we take models there dressed in that time period and take pictures. It’s a blast.
When I got there, one of the models was Zack Kelly. Oh man, he looked so handsome. I couldn’t get over how handsome and perfect and sweet and nice he was. It was literally love at first sight, and I feel silly that it happened to me, but it did.
Here is one of the pictures I took of the handsome Zachary Kelly when I first met him at Bannack:
Isn’t he handsome? Unfortunately, he was modeling with his girlfriend at the time…
Even though Zack was dating someone else at that time, I could not get him out of my mind. For weeks I thought about him and could stop thinking that he was what I wanted my husband to be like. After a few weeks, I started giving up hope on finding him. I actually got a boyfriend of my own at this time. Well, turns out Zack had broken up with his girlfriend right after Bannack. Now it was switched!
It was a miracle I ran into Zack again. I was doing homework on my couch when he walked in my apartment with one of my FHE sisters down the hall. My jaw literally dropped and I scrambled to find some words to say hi. He remembered who I was, that girl from Bannack that he saw. =)
After that, Zack asked me out. We started talking, going on a few dates, and getting closer to each other. =) I could tell it was going to be something big. This is a picture from our first date:
Another semester rolls by, and it’s time for another Bannack trip. This time, My boyfriend and I were modeling together, and Zack was by himself. Oh, and my boyfriend borrowed Zack’s shirt to model in. Haha. At this point I am dying to be with Zack.
After this Bannack trip, I broke up with my boyfriend and was inseparable with Zack every since. There was never a doubt that he was the one I was supposed to be with. We finally got it right! We continue to model at Bannack and other places, and it’s always been special to my heart. And it will be for years to come!
