Couples: Sneak Peek – Diana+Jesse
March 7, 2011
2AM, and I’m wide awake.
OK, perhaps I should start at the beginning.
We had an AWESOME day today with Diana+Jesse. Longtime readers may remember Jesse from such posts as this one, and Diana is his lovely wife. We got a bright and early start to our Sunday with shots all across Seattle, which somehow concluded with unplanned frozen yogurt of spontaneity.
For those taking notes, this is where the gates of hell opened and all its VIPs broke loose to mambo.
The wifey and I have been on a bit of a restricted diet for the past couple weeks, and had cut out virtually all carbs. This has kept our sugar intake uberlow for awhile, so upon consumption of the wonderous, magical, all-too-spectactular frozen yogurt (and toppings!…oops) today, I think our bodies didn’t know what to do with it. I hit a fastasgical high for bit, then crashed on the couch in a coma. For the afternoon, evening, and night. The Mrs. too. Aaannnn now I’m awake. Wide awake.
It was totally worth it though. And as I think back on the moment of weakness and reconsider whether if I were to revisit the situation again — would I do anything differently? The answer is most certainly, hands down, no doubt about it: Yes. Emphatically, Yes.
I would get more yogurt, more toppings, nuts, and a king sized butterfinger.
So as I thought back over the day, I remembered how much fun Diana+Jesse were/are. I couldn’t help but tear into the photos to pick a few to sneak peek. I’m sure Cindi will do the same over on her blog, once the coma wears off, and we’ll toss a few onto our Facebook page (don’t forget to ‘like’ us, if you haven’t already! /end shameless plug) as well as we work though our culling and processing.
These kids are so durned cute! And so in love, you can just see it radiate in every motion. They’ve been married for a few years, but never got the chance to do engagement photos. We’re firm believers that every couple should have a good set of photos to mark the start of their relationship / joint-life with. Not for narcissism’s sake, but because as you nest nothing bring as much warmth and personalization as family photos, there’s great fun in looking back at them in later years, and the great grandkids will get a kick out of them in generations to come (I know I wish I had more photos of my parents…let alone my grandparents, great grandparents and beyond) … and, OK, for narcissism’s sake. We’re all dead sexy in this world, every last one of us.
They may not technically be ‘engagement photos,’ but we hope they’ll bring as much excitement, and do this gorg(eous) pair justice. We’ll have to see what the moms think…
