Engagement: Narissa + Ashi

Friday, January 7, 2011

Oh what love can do. Love can answer your prayers, your dreams, can take your expectations and make them explode in a thousand unbelievable ways.

The last time I saw Narissa, Christmas 2009, she was a single girl who had just been set up on a coffee date by one of her professors back in Chicago. One year later, Christmas 2010, Narissa, my cousin and dear friend, is ENGAGED! I met her fiance, Ashi, just moments before our engagement session. And the entire time, as I observed them through my camera lens, I saw something different in Narissa. I saw for myself what this love had done, evident on her face, and in her voice. I grew to like Ashi very much, very quickly because of this. And more. Like the way they are together…

What’s a shoot in the snow without a little snow fight? :) Great way to wrap up the session! Narissa, I’ve never seen you happier…and Ashi, thank you for giving her that smile. We’ll let you keep her ;) See you in Chicago for the wedding! Much love.

    Your words and pictures say so much and more!! This is the first post that brought tears to my eyes…but I thought it might since seeing a preview of pics did just that the other night. Yeah for Narissa and Ashi!! And Mik, again, amazing what you capture with your lens! XXX

    These are fun. Love that shallow DOP. You have a very clear style, quite different from my own, but I admit to continually thinking of your images when shooting portraits.

    Very happy for Narissa.
