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!!
Ironic that Micah threw up right after this picture was taken?
It was nice visiting my old stomping grounds. And by nice I mean liver crushing.
I am so backed up on blogging that it really isn’t funny, but oh well, I really have nothing to complain about. Its been a hectic couple of weeks, but a really good couple of weeks. I probably won’t be able to backlog much due to the massive upcoming trip I am going on, but maybe a couple here and there should do. The picture above is from our second hotel on our road trip up from San Francisco. It actually made really really good waffles. Me Like.
I’m thinking I might not post all the road trip pictures since I am lacking on time. That means no embarrassing road trip pictures like this one:
What is Katherine doing in the picture? Who knows.
Its official. Road trips with good friends is one of the greatest things ever. Also, before you get your panties in a bunch, the driver never EVER drank while driving. Also, the minorities were never allowed behind the wheel, which did not bother me at all.
I was definitely not a fan of the hot Arizona sun, but we worked some great shots that is for sure. More to come once I have time to edit. Which will most likely be when I have some downtime during my upcoming visit to Seattle.
