Ladies and gents, I’m excited to share some photos from Esther and David’s Family and Engagement session. They are such a sweet couple and their children were terrific. I continue to pinch myself getting to work with such delightful folks :)
Their Story- told from Esther: David and I met in High School 1988. I was a sophomore he was a freshman. There is a 9 month age difference and we always like to say since I was born first he was made for me. We felt comfortable together and happy. We were still trying to figure ourselves out. We dated all the thru college, and then parted ways. During our 7 year separation we dated other people, David had a child in another relationship but we always had each other in the back of our minds. We reconnected 7 years later. We started dating and we were in a place that we both knew this was it. After dating for a time we decided to buy a home together. After moving in, 9 months later we were blessed with a beautiful little girl. We wanted to celebrate are blessing from god with a wedding to formally unite our family and to share our love for each other with our friends and family. Our proposal was short and sweet. We already had talked about taking the next step and we took out our immediate family to our favorite family restaurant “The Garrett”. He proposed to me when we were all seated and I was so over come with emotion I forgot to say yes,(I already thought he knew what my answer was since we had already discussed it) my mother had to remind my me to say yes. He was waiting patiently for my answer smiling at my reaction to my ring. I quickly turned around and hugged him and said yes! David and I have very busy lives with our children. So when we do get some down time we try to be as relaxed as we can. When we are together we enjoy talking about our plans for the future, remember our past, and organizing our busy present. We love watching TV such as Historical, drama (Mad Men and Downton Abby), and comedy shows. We love spending our free time with our children and family. We love going to Disneyland. On our date nights David and I love trying out new restaurants and going to the movies to watch independent movies. Our big hope for the future is to be able to travel with our family and see the world!
Esther and David- I was so much fun to photograph you two and your lovely family. I look forward to photographing your wedding in a few months!
