meet grace and parson. after seeing my work on a cup of jo, they flew all the way from hong kong for an engagement session. how cool is that? grace had been to the states before but this was parson’s first time! crazy. when we arrived at their bed and breakfast in santa monica, they were waiting outside, impeccably dressed. huge smiles on their faces. friendly waves. we knew right then and there that this was going to be a good day. the beach, only minutes away, provided the perfect backdrop. and streamers only added to the fun. we hope their time here was well worth the trip. one day we’ll get to go to hong kong. and it’ll be so nice to know that we have 2 friends there, who will no doubt greet us with those huge smiles and friendly waves again… mw
