Upon extreme coincidence it turns out that the little sister of the bride-to-be (Clare) that contacted me through theKnot.com was in my mom’s kindergarten class. Clare and I also graduated from the same small, private high school in Kansas City and know some of the same people. Beyond that, we live in the same small rural town south of the suburbs that is, or at least used to be, relatively uninhabited. Yes, a strange mix of coincidences, but I’m glad that they somehow worked out the way that they did, because I’m really excited to know these folks, had a great time shooting their engagement photos, and I’m stoked to be shooting their wedding this coming April!
Two of the coolest people on earth... well, officially three as of 6/22/12. Abby and Jon have not only given us a place to lay our heads at night while we look for a place in San Diego, but they are two of our very best friends. It was an absolute blast to tromp around with them on the hillsides of Encinitas while I watched their eyes twinkle in expectation of their first baby... that also could have been remnants from the wine tasting that Jon and I participated in less than an hour before the shoot :)
