Welcome to Amber + Jonathan’s Engagement Photo Session in Monrovia, CA!
Amber + Jonathan are simply the sweetest couple around, so we’re thrilled that we get to feature them on our blog.
We’ve known Amber for a while (oh, about a decade)
and we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Jonathan over the past few months, so…
Allow us to tell you some things you need to know about these two!
Amber has the biggest heart.
For the past forever (well, maybe 6 years?) she has volunteered with the kiddos in our church – and they love her to death.
What’s admirable to me is how she has served in such a loyal and humble way.
She doesn’t seek out recognition, yet she’s got the most extraordinary ability to make kids giggle.
What a gift!
Jonathan is smart and laid back.
He’s getting his Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy (a field we know a thing or two about)
and is going to be a great Therapist someday with his knack for setting people at ease.
Also, he’s hilarious!
(What can we say, we’re partial to clients who share our love of 30 Rock and Parks & Rec!)
But I digress. My point is, Amber + Jonathan are two very special people who simply make the world a nice place to live.
In particular, Monrovia – otherwise known as the Best Little Town in the San Gabriel Valley the World.
Amber + Jonathan met when they were students at APU, where they became close friends.
Friendship led to flirtation, and Amber + Jonathan became a couple!
I glanced at Amber’s photos today on Facebook, and I couldn’t help but notice -
every.single.photo with Jonathan has her smiling ear to ear.
She’s not just smiling for the camera either -
we’re talking carefree, happy as a clam, sometimes-goofy-and-always-loving-life smiles.
They’re pretty great together,
There are three things we just love to see in couples -
Things that make the relationship spark and shine in a special way:
(here’s a hint: we saw all three with Amber + Jonathan)!
# 1. Playfulness
Good times together keep that friendship alive!
Amber + Jonathan love to be silly together, and its pretty entertaining for anyone around them.
Being around them is a fun. Plain and simple.
Case in point:
And we think its clear: they are the very definition.
Amber + Jonathan, your relationship is just beautiful.
Thank you for letting us capture your love.
We are so excited to photograph your Wedding!
But first, we can’t wait for you to see the second half in Part II!
Monrovia Library, here we come!
