When Mallory moved to Oakland from the Midwest, she spent her days at Starbucks using their WiFi. Jefferson happened to be at the same Starbucks…they got to talking, and fell in love shortly after 🙂 Their first date was a hike on Mt. Diablo; when he proposed, Jefferson took her back to that same spot. Greg did a similar thing when he proposed…he took me to the beach where we shared our first kiss. Props to these guys!
Mallory and Jefferson quit their jobs last year and traveled the world. When they told me that in their inquiry email, I’m pretty sure I squealed and wrote back I thought they were the coolest. Ever. So many people dream about doing stuff like that and wait way too long. But they are the type of people who know what they want and go for it 🙂 They’re such happy people, and it’s obvious that they were created to be together. They’re celebrating their wedding in September and I know it will be such a joy-filled day. I get giddy thinking about my clients’ wedding days…and this one is no exception.
We did our engagement session in Oakland and had the best weather!! I’m always a little nervous for winter sessions because I want my clients to be comfortable, and often the ladies are in dresses. The Bay Area pulled through and gave us 75 degree weather…and it’s February!! I’m pretty sure I was “glistening” in a short sleeve 😉
Mallory and Jefferson,
It’s an honor to document such a special time in your life. It was so great to hang out with you guys… you’re such happy people and it’s a blessing to be in your presence! Your wedding day will be amazing and I can’t wait to celebrate you two! See you guys in September 🙂
