It was a gloomy, rainy day in Los Angeles when Alex and Diana came to visit from their respective (also rainy) cities of Seattle and Vancouver, and none of us had expected to deal with unpleasant weather. Just a few days prior, the sun was shining and the temperatures were in the mid to high 70s! We were fortunate enough to stay dry long enough to get the following photos. :)
I’ve known this awesome couple for about 5 years. I like to sing in the car with Diana and plot elaborate surprises with Alex. :P My memories with them cover an impressive number of cities all over the west coast, and they have visited me at every single place I’ve lived in since we’ve met (I am still in that stage of life that involves a lot of moving, so that’s a lot of places to visit). When we first met I don’t think I would have called myself a foodie, but over the years that has definitely changed… and now we go on all kinds of foodie adventures together. They tease me about my silly quirks, listen to me when I’m having a bad day, and embody all the qualities I could ever want in a loyal friend. I am SO honored and excited to be a part of their wedding day not as a photographer, but as a bridesmaid!!! And I can’t wait to shower them with love. <3
Photographing friends always makes me nervous. I get self-conscious of the way I talk and work, and I stress myself out thinking about their high expectations of me (no matter how many times they tell me not to worry!). When we arrived at the concert hall those nerves started kicking in… but these two were so easygoing and goofy that by the end of the shoot, my stomach hurt from laughing!! Alex and Diana, I love you both. Thank you for your friendship over the years and I’m looking forward to many more years of adventures with you!
