lisa & jack: engaged in seattle

ask my husband what my favorite movie of all time is. go on. he’ll roll his eyes and tell you. it’s sleepless in seattle. i watch it when i’m sick, i watch it when i’m bored, and i can quote every line. it’s both funny and tom hanxy and makes my heart bubble with happy. i LOVE it. one of my favorite quotes is david hyde pierce’s bewildered line “It rains nine months a year in Seattle” followed by Meg’s “I know I know — I do NOT want to move to Seattle!” anyway, a few years ago, my friend lisa actually up and moved from Denton to Seattle. i had a very tiny piece in pushing her towards that decision, and that makes me really proud, because in Seattle, Lisa met Jack. that, my friends, is where their story begins.

it turns out i do not want to move to seattle, even after seeing capitol hill and pike place market, but that’s only because i have portland. if not for that – this vibrant city combined with these awesome people would be a mighty tempting place to reside. my super top secret plan is to eventually bring them down the coast to my little bridge city to the friend commune where all of my favorite people will live in a little neighborhood of craftsman houses near shops & restaurants and raise cute vegan eco-conscious babies.

congratulations lisa & jack! i am so truly excited to shoot your wedding! see you soon!

day 1: new mexico

today was our first day of travelling to portland. this whole week has been a surreal rush of people, tasks, anxieties, and emotions. we’ve left behind so much, and where we’re going is largely unfamiliar. coming to grips with that will be a long process, i think.

yesterday i spent the day with my parents getting everything cleaned and closed up while daniel finished his last day at work. an eternity later, we’re sitting in a hotel in santa rosa, new mexico watching a movie and snacking on complimentary bananas. life is certainly strange sometimes.

here’s a few shots hastily edited to show you some of our first leg.
