As I sit here looking through Asia + Mike's photos, it makes me smile. Not only because these two are the sweetest + most genuine people, but from looking at these photos you'd never know what was going on behind the scenes during their shoot!!
I pulled in to the spanish banks parking lot, and immediately these two introduced themselves with big hugs. (my kinda people!) We set off towards the forest, to walk the trails with their pup Starsky, but not even 1 minute into the pathway and we realized it was solid ice. and I mean SOLID.
We all glanced at each other, and being the adventurous crazies we are, we decided to brave the ice and just slip, slide and practically crawl our way up the hillside. (Girls, you know that pair of boots that you have sitting in your closet, that are more pretty then they are functional? the ones with NO grips on the bottom, literally just a shiny flat sole? Yeahhhh, both Asia and I were wearing those boots. and this was one of those times that fashion over comfort did not come in handy!) I wish we had a behind the scenes video because we were literally 1 step forwards followed by sliding 2 steps backwards. We FINALLY made it to the top of the hill, determined to get a few nice forest shots, and then (as quickly + carefully as possible) made our way back down to the beach, where they would be free to run + jump + dance and MOVE AROUND, without falling flat on their asses.
Aside from being totally adventurous, hilarious, and adorable, they have a really sweet history together.
Thank you Mike + Asia for inviting me along to document this exciting time in your life!! I had such a blast laughing + exploring with you guys, and can't wait to get together with you again!
