Downtown Engagement | Lyssa and Luis

WHERE TO EVEN BEGIN. These two. Their history. and THIS SHOOT. Ah!

Let's go back a little bit, and let me tell you the story of how our friendship with this babe began......

Lyssa and I both used to work for Zano Salon (Z TEAM REPRESENT!), and we vaguely knew each other through the various company meetings and classes we'd attend.  To those of you who know me (Jamie) - I'm a fairly serious person.... quiet, serious, dare I say socially awkward?! (The answer is yes, I daresay. I'm so awkward....) So, whenever I'd run into Lyssa at these meetings it was like- HOW AM I NOT UNCOMFORTABLE AROUND THIS ETERNALLY SMILY HAPPY STRANGER.... WHO ARE YOU? AND WHY ARE YOU SO FUN?! ((For real you guys, I'm like a turtle and I practically hide in my shell around people I don't know very well. In a Zano company meeting setting, that meant I'd pretty much stick by Deo and Lawrence's side the whole time..... LOL)) But then along came Lyssa, oh dear sweet Lyssa....... it was always just WAY TOO EASY to hang with her on the various occasions we'd run into each other- She's got this contagious energy and hilarious sense of humor... it's hard to not love her the second you meet her!

Fast forward a couple years- when the stars somehow aligned and we all became roommates..... I can absolutely say that living with Lyssa was one of THE BEST roommate experiences- she's like the most hilarious and fun loving person to be around EVER, Luis is certainly lucky to have snagged her for keeps!  

These two are so ridiculously adorable together, and we had such a blast running around downtown. We also finally got to shoot at this cool garage rooftop location we scouted/tested a month or so ago and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use. We also ran down to Ohio street beach just as the sun was setting... it was windy and beautiful. Swoon..

Lyssa and Luis are getting married this coming November, and we will be there (as guests! woohoo!) We can't wait to see the magic that our amazingly talented friends Ed & Aileen capture on their wedding day!
