eve + mike
So, our second rad couple this week was Eve + Mike. These two are absolutely adorable, and we had a blast running around with them. We luckily got a totally different day than the day before (frigid, boo), and the sun was out, and it was a beautiful (and warm!) day to be running around.
Side note: Murphy is currently in the studio while we write this. He's boxing a rolled up carpet with socks on his hands. You know, because he needs boxing gloves. :)
I LOVE BRIDGE. I LOVE BRIDGE. You two are kindof awesome to take photos of! Alyssa, you killed this one - I just saw it for the first time and I want to hang it on our wall, for real.
Thanks, and conversely, this gorgeousness is probably my favorite of the day. Awesome job, babe. It's just gorgeous (I know I said gorgeous twice in that sentance, but it is. There's no better word)!
It was an exceedingly chill day - not too cold outside, down by the water, lots of stuff to play with around the city...including the oldest pad in town.
I find this photo hysterical, because the first two takes, Eve has an expression of pure terror on her face. Mike cleared her by a ton, but on this one, I was like, Eve, you totally have to not look petrified! :)
So, I'm not a giant fan of Rich taking photos of me doing idiotic things, because, well, as he pointed out, he only does it so he can catch the time I fall/drop a bunch of expensive gear in the lake/fail miserably at whatever I'm attempting. I think this comes from a wedding a couple years ago, where I decided to try and jump and hold myself on a lightpole. I didn't account my extraordinarily weak arms/slippery shoes into my physics calculations and instead of sticking to the pole, I fell on my ass. Rich and the couple died laughing, I turned purple and couldn't look anyone in the face for 10 minutes. Anyway, Rich missed the shot of me busting my ass, and now he does this because he's waiting for the day it happens again. Nothing like marital support.
It's going to happen - and I WILL be ready :)
We should probably just be on bridges all the time - I could be okay with that.
Yeah - I was a pretty big fan of that one :)
So, we're under this bridge taking some photos, and Rich and I see a bicyclist out of the corner of our eye - we both grab our cameras and shoot as she goes by and go on with our shoot. When I dropped my cards and went through the shots, I'd even forgotten taking a shot of her going past, but as I came across it, I stopped in my tracks. Because as I was looking at the photo, I was like, I know her. Seriously.
So, my parents were in this celtic-folk band in the 80s-90s, Castlegate. They played local gigs around the holidays, and got together every week of my childhood at our house (my folks were the only ones with kids). And as I was looking at the photos, I knew, without a doubt, this was the band's flautist/whistle player, Karen, who I hadn't seen in almost 20 years. Seriously, how cool is Buffalo?! I love the 3 degrees of Buffalo.
Super rad - the trip is if we didn't have our faces buried in our cameras, I can't imagine she wouldn't have recognized you, hon. It's a small, strange little world. I think you should look her up. To everyone else out there, Alyssa threatened my life if I posted MP3's of Castlegate. They were really good - got played on the Thistle and Shamrock - and if you know what that is, you're cool with us.
Dude - lovin it.
Guys - thanks for an awesome time. We loved hanging out with you and cannot believe the wedding is coming up so soon!
