Paige + Nic Engagement: Hermosa Beach, California
Paige and I met when she began interning for BLND Public Relations in Hermosa Beach, California. I was asked to take professional headshots of their newest contributors and I of course happily obliged. Paige had an enduring aura about her that would be difficult to put into words. Succinctly said, she is sweet, soft-spoken, her words melt on you like milk + honey. At the same time, she carries a bold inner gusto that makes her so good at what she does at work, at home, and in life. Nic, plays for the Los Angeles Kings National Hockey League, and although I hadn't been able to spend as much time with him, I immediately observed a more dauntless, daring, and veracious aura. Individually, I sensed two slightly different personalities. The second they came together though, everything--life and the universe--made complete perfect sense. Together, I saw with my very own eyes and felt with my very own heart, a mad, passionate, and extraordinary two-for-one kind of love. Their love was gentle, fragile, graceful like the heart of a poet; wild, free and passionate like the spirit of an adventurer--the kind of love that we all dream, wish, and fight for.
These two lovebirds will be getting married August of this year in their hometown of Minnesota and there is no doubt it will be one gorgeous epic wedding. I've jokingly (half jokingly) asked her to fire her photographer and hire me instead.
Paige + Nic, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to document this special love that the two of you share. Congratulations on your engagement and wishing you two the happiest most memorable wedding day and lovely forever after.
