meet joel and karen. they live in new york. they met and fell in love while working at mtv together. they know what they like. they’re getting married this july out on long island. i get to be there.
i love getting responses to the ’so, we need to set up some time to take engagement photos’ email with a solid list of questions and location options. it makes the entire experience that much more personal. since they live in and LOVE the west village, that’s where we met to make the magic happen. i also have to say… i love clothes. i love clients that have lots and lots of clothes. and shoes. and if your clothes and shoes are all size zero, and you open up your closet to me and say ‘what do you think i should wear?’… it’s like playing life size dress up doll for me. and i love it. seriously. which is just my blabbering way of saying that karen is adorable, and i want to pinch joel’s cheeks, he’s such a sweetheart.
since moving away from new york, i feel like i’ve sort of relaxed a little bit. returned to my “west coast laidbackness” (i’m laughing at how ridiculous that notion actually is, even as i type this). but somehow i’d managed to forget how cranky cab drivers can be in manhattan. yowzah. some of you may know that i can get some serious motion sickness. so sitting in the front seat of a cab, while the cabbie drives insanely fast, and starts swearing at my couple in the back seat for daring to ask him to slow down… i do NOT miss that. and i got a little woozy. thank goodness the ride didn’t last long.
thank you both SO much for such an awesome afternoon… for the stories and the laughter (and epic cab adventure)… and for introducing me to Park! can’t wait to see you again july!
