Meesa and Andy : Engagement

There just seems to be so many changes happening right now in our lives, Meesa said out loud standing on a busy Pasadena sidewalk. As people pushed by with brightly-colored shopping bags in tote, Meesa spoke briskly about moving to the east coast so her fiancé, Andy, can pursue his musical degree. After their wedding, they’ll remain in southern California for a few months, then make their way to Boston. Andy was accepted to one of the most prestigious musical schools in the country, and it’s no wonder because he’s very much the artist.

A few days prior to their engagement shoot, Andy took his new digital SLR and roamed the streets of Downtown Pasadena taking photographs and looking for cool locations. By the time he and Meesa were frolicking under the warm SoCal sun, he already scoped out spots for them to be photographed. As Meesa and Andy maneuvered their way through alleys, busy streets, and rolling green hills, the remained hand-in-hand. Through the different scenery and vibes, they were by each other’s sides smiling the entire time. I have a sneaking suspicion their behavior will transcend the noisy streets of Pasadena and drip over to the streets of Boston. No matter the changes life brings their way, they’ll be by each other’s sides, hand-in-hand.

Here are a few of my favorites…



I grabbed this shot as we were walking to another location...I thought it was funny because Andy loves Macs just as much as I do, so he decided to list Apple products on their wedding registry! I love it!! ;)

HI Jasmine,

I don't want you to take what I am about to say the wrong way!!! (Especially since I think this is the first time I have ever posted anything to your blog!!!) It is meant as a SINCERE, from the heart compliment....LOL..here you go...I am not sure which is better, the way that you tell your couples story, or the way that you capture them....I think, if not in this life, in a past or future life, you HAD to have been, will be, at the very least, SHOULD also be, or ARE currently a WRITER!!!!! No one can tell a story or bring a blog reader right there with you quite like you can!! Keep up the good work, I love reading the stories before each of your images appear.

I love watching people do what they love most. So much is said about a person when they're doing what they should be doing how they would like to do it.

You're extremely talented and the pictures came out great!
