I can't say about this wedding and these two handsome guys! These two are so sweet... I knew I was the photographer for them when we first met via FaceTime because they are from out of state. We hit it off right away and I couldn't imagine not being their photographer after they started spilling all of their amazing plans. I'm SO HONORED to have been their photographer and I am excited to share these photos with all of you! 


Some fun questions I asked the couple that I wanted to share with you all! (Below)

  • We met almost 5 years ago. Kevin was moving into a new apartment and the roommate he found on Craigslist was friends with Josh. Before Kevin moved in he went out to Roscoe's (a local gay bar) anniversary party with the roommate to be where he met Josh for the first time. Kevin was immediately taken with Josh's sexy dance moves. Josh was drawn to Kevin's energy and sense of humor. And we were both drawn to each other's love of travel.
  • In March of 2013 we went to Cartagena Columbia for Jean's (one of Josh's attendants) wedding. The evening of March 7th (the day before Kevin's birthday) at a restaurant on top of one of the walls of Cartagena's Old City, Josh proposed to Kevin in front of all of our friends that traveled with us. Luckily one of Jean's friends was a local Columbian who managed to get Josh up on the stage that the dinner band was playing on.
  • We chose to get married in Palm Springs on somewhat of a whim. We wanted to get married in a somewhat intimate environment and it was important that both of our families would be able to come if they desired. We found the house in Palm Springs and it felt like the right direction for us.
  • Getting white gurl wasted and falling in the pool..............Just kidding. We're most looking forward to having a great party with all of the people that have supported and loved us, from our lives before we were together through today.
