It’s one thing to photograph a friend, and totally different to photograph a fellow photographer. It’s an absolute honor to have someone who constantly looks at photos, and photographs themselves, to consider me to take their pictures! Ah . . . totally humbling. I met Olesya about a year and a half ago and I love everything about her. Her fun style, clothes choice, the way she makes others laugh and many other little quirks peculiar to her. In March we got to be roommates during church retreat and we’ve grown even closer since then. When she first told me of Borya, I disapproved. Not of the guy of course, but of the distance. Borya lives in Washington and I definitely did not want to part with my new friend. Fast forward a few months, we were walking on the shores of Lake Tahoe, taking engagement pictures. What can say? I love this duo so much and can’t wait till their wedding. To add to the happiness, their engagement session was featured today on Pretty Little Weddings! Thank you so much to Jillian for the feature. This girl is amazing. A former award-winning newspaper reporter and now a freelance writer, yep, just my type.
