It was 2006. I started my first day as a front line employee at Six Flags Magic Mountain way before I knew for certain that I would be lifestyle photographer. I went through this awkward hairstyle phase that makes me cringe when I look back at my first years of employment there--I'm sure my then coworkers (now my besties) could definitely vouch for me on it. Fast forward a little bit after--I had befriended one of the raddest people, Jenny and Fernando.
Nearly 10 years later, I posted a casting call for adorable couples on my social media, and to my surprise they agreed to do it! Not only are they super adorbs, and made me and my buddies just giggle of happiness when hearing about their relationship 4 years ago, but they are totally in love. <3
When I asked about their outfit color scheme inspiration, they went with.. "Dapper Lilo & Stitch". I mean, look at them! So cute.
I'M SO EXCITED that I finally get to show off these two!
...And this is what happens to my couples once I tell them, "Don't smile."
(*Insert Applause* for reverse psychology!)
Where it all began... <3
Thank you to Jenny and Fernando for being my adorable couple and for bringing their A game during this shoot and to every hangout we have. Let's do this again sometime! :)
