Once in a blue moon, there are those couples you meet that are completely simpatico–such an incredible match it’s a miracle they found each other. Knowing amazing couples like Alexis and Johnny is so inspirational I can hardly believe how lucky I am to be able to call them friends and document their story!
They met on OkCupid and based on Alexis’s mention of rock hounding, Johnny talked her into a date by planning a garnet hunting trip to Red Mountain. Garnets became a theme in their love affair: gifting them to each other, stumbling upon hundreds during backpacking trips, and (of course) encrusting the hand crafted proposal ring made by Johnny’s uncle. Between their passion for climbing cliff faces, relaxing together on their house boat and their shared love for furry felines, it’s no wonder the love between these two continues to grow…Thank you for making the world a better place with your love. Congratulations you guys!
