Martin and Angela are the sweet couple that won my free photoshoot giveaway a few months ago.
Martin sent in the sweetest email about how proud he is of Angela… the whole thing made me tear up because their love is so evident and beautiful!
In Martin’s words:
“Have you ever thought to yourself, man I wish I had asked her out? That was me roughly 14 years ago. I thought I had missed my chance, all because I listened those around me. We’ve all heard horror stories of mothers/fathers who come across as the parent who will lop off a limb of the person who tries to date their daughter. Yeah, I was under the impression that the girl I found cute & attractive had a father who was gonna lop off a limb, So I left well enough alone.
Angela had been that girl I found to be unattainable and pretty well outta my league. I was the stereotypical “Nerd”: I played video games, into computers and played, yep you got it – Magic the Gathering. She was the quiet, shy socialite who was in band. Yet, no matter where I was in school she seemed to be around me. Yet I never tried to ask her out.
One night while I was working, I was asked if I would accompany one of my adopted sisters 2 friends to their Jr. Prom. Just graduating from high school what guy would say no aye? With a bit of hesitation though I asked her who, and was told oh … Angela. Most guys don’t get a second chance, this was mine. That was 10 years of dating and 3 years of marriage to that same beautiful lady. Today she is my best friend, devil’s advocate & most stubborn person I know and I’m happy to call her mine! 13 Years together and I still cannot believe the chance I was gifted so long ago. God has truly blessed our lives with many great family members and friends, one of which is on the other side of this camera.”
