I took a little break from our move last week to shoot Nga and Jay’s engagement session. And it just happened to be at one of my most favorite places. UCLA! Nga and Jay meet there and graduated just a year after I did. And they just so happened to meet in the same lecture hall that Chuck and I had our only class together in.
As we were walking around campus we were all reminiscing and I had them tell me about how they met. Jay said that he walked into the lecture hall and caught Nga checking him out. He flipped his long, flowing hair back and forth and checked her out too, while carrying his motorcycle helmet. Later he saw her in the Kerckhoff coffee shop and asked her to do his homework. The reason this story is so funny is because later Nga told me he didn’t have long hair and he didn’t have a motorcyle. See, Jay has a wild imagination. I imagine he was a handful as a child. But, he made the session so much fun. And he was sick! I can’t imagine what he would have been like if he felt one hundred percent Nga has her hands full
Nga and Jay didn’t start dating after they met. They were “just friends” for a few years after college and one late night they finally confessed their love for one another. You can really tell how much fun they have together. They are constantly laughing and goofing off. They actually remind me a lot of Chuck and myself.
Sadly, I will not be shooting their wedding But, I know it’s going to be amazing! How could it not be with two people this much fun??? Good luck with your wedding, Nga and Jay! I can’t wait to see the pictures! For now, here’s your slide show!
First off, let’s start with Jay’s shirt. I mean, you have to be a pretty funny guy to pull this off!
It all began in this building
In this coffee shop
I love shooting at UCLA because I find new spots every time
The lecture hall where it all began
I remember sitting in a lot of boring lectures in this hall. Chuck got a better grade than me, which isn’t shocking. He has the book smarts, but I have the street smarts
This is Nga’s cake cutting dress. Isn’t is so cute?
My favorite shot of the day
I lie. This may be my favorite shot of the day.
See, there’s funny Jay again!
