Amanda & Eric : Engaged

New Year’s Eve. New York. Sparkly. Friends and wishes. Drinks and laughs. Hugs and kisses. It’s the time you can grab someone’s hand and declare that this will be the best year of your life. Magical, right? Well, for Amanda and Eric, it was anything but magical. They sat at the same table, with the same people, in the same circle. They even took photos together. And despite all the magical elements in their favor, they don’t particularly remember one another. Thankfully though, back in California, their lives came together. This time, everything aligned. But don’t worry, they have a photo of that New Year’s Eve night framed in their home, you know, just in case they forget.

Last week, I met with Amanda and Eric in Venice. It was a gloomy, rainy day. But with a couple like them, there is no need for sun. They bring the life, the party and enough color to make any grey day fun. I can’t wait for their wedding next month at Smog Shoppe. I’m positive it is going to be rad!

Click here to see more of their session.

And just because, you can witness their energy for yourself. I don’t think Eric nor I were ready for Amanda’s running start, but seriously, it was pretty awesome!
