I met Mike through a photography group on Facebook . He lives in Portland but wanted to get Married in San Diego so after seeing my work he loved it and asked me to shoot his wedding !
Since they were flying from Portland and very busy for the wedding, I only got a chance to meet them until their wedding day and boy they were so kind, adorable and funny! I mean this couple could not stop kissing each other and I had to ask them to stop so I can take my pictures . LOL
They were goofy and funny. They wanted to make funny faces for all their pictures and were not serious at all. I loved that about them :) I had a blast shooting their wedding and so grateful that I met this lovely couple and had the opportunity to capture their wedding day.
Here is their story:
From 2005-2012 Mike & Laura were co workers at Rentrak in Portland. A couple years after meeting they became besties. Everyone thought they were a couple but, they simply just enjoyed each other's company. This was not for lack of trying on Mike's part!
They Fell In Love
Let's face it... how many couples never fight, always have fun together, are equally pig-headed and goofy, have the same values, want the same dream kitchen, both love Top Gun enough to still watch it regularly AND are both Britney Spears fans? That's soulmate makings there, how could we not fall in love? Perfect fit!
They Got Engaged
On September 1, 2015 .... Mike figured he better lock it down before Laura changed her mind yet again! SO . on an equally special day with an equally special ring, Mike popped the question out of the blue. " Luckily the gamble paid off" and Laura said YES! And now they are soar off into the sunset together for all kinds of fun adventures.
