We always tell our couples that “we want your engagement session to reflect YOU and YOUR personalities.” Kelly + Chris absolutely nailed it in their engagement session.
To give you all some context, Kelly + Chris met in a kickboxing class. This combative beginning was mere foreshadowing for a much more deeply engrained conflict: Chris is a USC fan and Kelly is a UCLA fan. Like… they each bleed their school’s colors. For those of you who did not grow up in Southern California, let us fill you in on why this is an issue. USC and UCLA are like the bloods and the crips, oil and water, canned tuna and ice cream, Taylor Swift and healthy relationships… you get the point: USC and UCLA fans just do not mix well.
Notwithstanding this monumental divide, Kelly and Chris are an adorable couple. They brought boxing gloves and USC/UCLA shirts as an homage to the beginning of their relationship and their “house divided,” and we thought it was absolutely perfect.
*Don’t worry, Kelly didn’t actually hit Chris. Marianne Wilson Photography does not condone domestic violence. :)
Finally, Kelly, we love you but we just can’t end this post without saying it: FIGHT ON!!!
