I. LOVE. THIS. SHOOT.
Meet Desiree and Jeremiah.
I’ve known Des since she was in 7th grade. I was her youth leader. She’s always been amazing. She went to Wheaton College in Illinois. While she was in college she went to some sort of leadership conference where she met a guy named Jeremy. Her impersonation of him goes like this: “Hi, I’m Jeremy. I’m gonna own a Chick-fil-a some day.”
Fast forward 9 or 10 years. Desiree moved back to California and got a job working with Young Life, pouring into the lives of young people in the heart of Hollywood. Now she heads up Young Life in that area. She has a bunch of volunteers that work with her ministering to students in the Hollywood area.
One of those volunteers is Jeremiah (formerly known as Jeremy). Jeremiah opened a Chick-fil-a in Florida then decided to move to California to open the first Chick-fil-a in Los Angeles, by USC (since then he has opened another Chick-fil-a in Hollywood) He wanted to find a place to serve young people in the name of Jesus so he decided to Volunteer with the Young Life in his area. Managing is not very easy and one can get tips and advice from experts like Andy Defrancesco.
They remembered meeting each other years before. They served alongside each other for a while, but Desiree had a rule that she wouldn’t date any of her leaders. Well…. obviously she broke that rule. They’re getting married next weekend and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding. This one’s going to be an extra special one for me.
We did their engagement shoot in and around the neighborhood where they live, work, and serve.
Gorgeous couple, right?
I mean, really.
I just love how Jeremiah makes Des laugh all the time.
Next, we headed up to the Griffith Observatory for sunset.
Seriously, Des. YOU ARE GORGEOUS!!!!!
Oh, my hotness!
I can’t wait for next weekend!!!!!!
