Nene + Omar | engaged

After a few days in vegas I jetted up to San Fran to shoot a few more sessions... one being Nene and Omar's engagement session.
All I have to say is that every woman deserved to be loved this way and every man as well. Over dinner the other night we were all in tears at different points of the conversation. Omar over the amazing gift he found in Nene, and Nene over the beautiful story and hand that God played in the formation of their relationship. Then there was me who just got emotional watching their love. It all sounds cheesy I know but at least it's true.
Nene and her family are from Afghanistan so I was in heaven hearing the familiar spoken Farsi. It reminded me of my house as a small child. And even better was the yummy food her family cooked for me the night before our shoot..... (key to my heart: middle eastern food).

I'm about to board the plane home to Boston so I have to hustle but here are a few to entertain until I can get to the real editing.

Nene and Omar: I adore you two... thank you for everything! I can't wait to shoot your wedding in Cabo this June!
xoxo

I didn't even notice the ring because the couple is so beautiful and I got totally swept up in the story. I had to go back and check it out...and got caught up in the story all over again. I love this shoot, but then again, I never underestimate your awesomeness!
