It’s really the greatest honor when my friends ask me to photograph them. That they pick me. Then they always want to work around my work schedule whenever it works for me. They just want me to photograph them. It’s the greatest honor.
These two… Amanda is my best friend. I won’t get all sappy about her here cause one day she’s gonna get married and if I say it all now, what will I say then?! Haha. We came into each others lives just about the time we were going to need each other. Without even knowing it. And we’ve become each others biggest supporters over the last year and a half. And we’re pretty inseparable. Even if I leave town we make sure to have lunch and dinner the day before I go. And we get together as soon as I’m back. In the last year-ish Ryan came into her life. He is perfect for her. I have never seen her this happy, which makes me extra happy. And recently they took a big step and moved into a new apartment together. So naturally they needed some photos of them together to put up in their new place.
Trying to photograph them is sometimes a little crazy as they’re constantly making faces, jumping on each other (in not cute ways), and making more faces. If it’s not Amanda, it’s Ryan. We took photos for maybe 20 minutes. There was so much ridiculousness between them and my daughter was sitting behind me making up her own songs. Amanda was laughing so hard she was straight bawling. Makeup running everywhere. We had so much fun we had to stop cause she couldn’t pull it together. But I love that we cut photos short because we were having fun. Who wouldn’t?!
The sun was perfect. It was starting to feel like fall in Missoula MT. And laughter was abundant. I have to share their photos!
