I had the great honor of shooting Jen and Paul’s engagement photos a few weeks back. I’ve known them for about eight years now; though not so well in the beginning as we started bumping into each other through mutual friends. I have to say, I totally thought Paul was a thug and kind of scary when I first met him due to buzz cut bleached hair (turns out that hair was “gold” to go with the blue and gold colors of Cal). Later on Jen, Wei-Ling and I were roommates in one of the most fun apartment I’ve ever been in, 3 gals together – 4 if you count Charcoal!
Doing a photo shoot is a great way to test that wedding makeup and hair before the big day Jen had gotten her trial run done right before; and I think we all quickly figured out that the updo was pretty, but it made Jen look like not-Jen. And on your wedding day, it probably helps to still look like you, especially for the pictures!
Special guest appearance by Charcoal in these photos; I can’t really imagine Paul and Jen without her there too. I had a blast…I can’t wait for their actual wedding day!
