Michelle and RJ's Downtown LA Engagement

There are so many awesome things about being a photographer. One of the benefits are all the friendships that are started and formed with clients. You get to watch their families grow and change. In this case, I got to see an old friend and see where life has taken her. Michelle and I went to middle and high school together. We were cheerleaders together, we share the same birthday, we had the same group of friends until about senior year. We didn't see each other after graduation as life took us in different directions, so this was the first time we had spent time together in 10 years! It was fun talking to her and RJ and hearing how they met and what their future plans are. They are a gorgeous couple; they're also fun, sweet, a little awkward in front of the camera (which I find endearing- and really, who isn't?!), and they obviously love each other a lot.

I'm so grateful our paths crossed and that they trusted me to take their engagement photos. I loved going downtown and trying new locations. I hope Michelle and RJ love them and that they have fun planning their wedding- I'm sure it's going to be fabulous!
