Oh, I’m so very excited about this one! Not only because we captured some fun photos, but also because my friend is getting married and I get to capture it all. Here is the story of how I met Ashkan. It was the first day of grade 10 in the new school. The first class was history. I was sitting at the front desk, middle row, he was right behind me. Like any first day of school, we got to play the ‘Find someone who…” game. Naturally, I turned around. I think my name went into the box “Find someone who doesn’t know who Martha Stewart is.” Don’t ask… Over the following years we shared a number of classes together, mainly English related. We did ridiculous group projects that involved Ash being dressed as a woman with stuffed animals for … ahem bosoms. [I still have the tapes, blackmail?]; built crazy mountains; drew ridiculous pie charts (twice) in each others yearbooks, and had all sorts of fun. Then, as it usually happens after highschool, we all moved to different places and lost touch for a bit.
While I was gallivanting here and there, Ashkan moved to Vancouver where he met, oh so gorgeous, Jena. What can I say, these two are just perfect together! Without being overly cheese-ball-ish, I’ll just say that you can feel the love when you’re around them! Here is the first part of their engagement photos, to be followed with more after.
