Stephanie + Jimmy Engagement Session: Palos Verdes Estates
Stephanie and I e-mailed back and forth for quite some time. We quickly developed an online rapport, and I very quickly fell in love with her witty remarks and quirky personality. I finally met her and Jimmy for a cup of coffee and discovered she is even cooler in person. She handed me a loaf of banana nut bread tightly wrapped with aluminum foil + a bright red ribbon and said to me I made you some banana nut bread and I don't really bake. And just like that--she stole my heart.
Jimmy, a Surgical Technologist, and Stephanie, a Registered Nurse, first met in the operating room of the UCLA Medical Center. Despite the traumas they witnessed and other than the fact they were saving lives (no big deal...) they were able to find comfort and refuge in the feelings that quickly developed between them. If it's anything like the gold dust I experienced, there is no doubt about it, Stephanie very quickly and very early in the relationship stole Jimmy's whole-wide heart. The two have been together for over five years now and their love continues to grow over discussions of food, their adoration for their poodle kids, and their current obsession with finding the best poke in town.
Jimmy + Stephanie, thank you so much for trusting in me and allowing me to document such authentic and intimate moments between the two of you. I can't wait to continue documenting your love and look forward to your wedding day!
