Deborah didn’t live in my dorm my freshman year, but that didn’t stop us from becoming the most dynamic Asian and Mexican duo ever. After our first hilarious meeting (which involved her pretending to be pregnant and me thinking she was on heroin) she never thought I would actually call her for lunch. Well I did, and three bajillion bubble teas later, we are still closer than ever.
So when she asked me if I could take her engagement pictures with Justin (who falls into my super nice and funny category) I agreed in an instant. I COULD write about how they both met and fell in love and blah blah blah, but who wants to read that? Well, I am sure a lot of you do, but I am still not going to write it. These two just click; not only are they perhaps the most animated couple I know, but they make each other laugh a lot and are just a blast to hang around with. One of my funnest nights in my life was a night with these two in Hong Kong (from what I remember anyway).
Again, as with most of my closest friends, I have had the amazing opportunity to travel with them, share stories with them and see their relationship blossom into something special (even if it takes a little kung-fu).
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for these two (a rarity in gloomy Seattle).
I can’t wait for their wedding and the cute little half asian babies they will have in the future.
Congrats Deborah and Justin!!!!!
Whenever you live in a dorm, you will meet people that you will keep close to you for the rest of your life. I am lucky that I have so many close friends from that one amazing freshman year at the University of Washington. Katherine did live in the same floor as I did, but we didn’t really start getting close until our Sophomore year. After we both made fun of each other’s race, we knew that we would be evil best friends for life. I can’t really be evil with Greg since he is, without at doubt, probably the nicest guy I know. That is a hard title to keep, since I know a lot of nice guys.
After a successful visit in San Francisco and a road trip up to Seattle, Katherine had asked if we could do her engagement session when we were both in Seattle. We picked a day and voila, in true Seattle fashion, it was raining hardcore. It wasn’t going to deter us though, we got some rain gear and stole an umbrella from the University Village (OK Borrowed). There really was no need for it though, because as soon as we got out of the car the rain let up and the sun came down.
It was great. The light was just A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
I could go on and on writing about these two, but you can just tell from the pictures that they belong together. I have had the honor to laugh with them, party with them, travel the world with them and basically have been blessed to see their relationship blossom to where it is now.
I can’t wait to see the rest.
Congratulations Katherine and Greg!!
This was one of the stops on our road trip from San Francisco to Seattle. It is absolutely stunning. STUNNING. Lots of other words can describe it, but I will just use that one. We woke up a bit hungover/cranky in the morning and after probably the most awkward breakfast of all time with the most awkward waitress ever, we headed up to the viewpoint.
Me: Isn’t it JUNE?!
Couldn’t help but notice that the snow on the road towered over our car. I almost cried.
Also, this was the first time I ever stayed in an A team or whatever they are called cabin. They are crazy! And awesome.
