Nicole and Aaron : Engagement

Oooooooh. The first time they met, she gave him a piece of her mind. And then some more.

Nicole—who’s feisty, yet quite amicable—looked Aaron in the face and let him know that, no, he did not deserve the job promotion and store relocation…she did. Nicole found it appropriate to let this complete stranger know that while it may appear that she was fine with the decision, it wasn’t really okay. Don’t get it twisted.

Apparently, while she was giving him a piece of her mind, she was also relinquishing a part of her heart. And Aaron…well, Aaron now had an earful from a girl he found beautiful and intriguing. A girl who would later become his wife.

A couple years later, they reconnected and fell in love and, while Nicole’s still lively and spirited, Aaron is her calm. Her center. They’re quite different than the pair who met a few years ago over a disputed store relocation and there’s no denying that while Nicole once let him know exactly what was on her mind, they both now share what’s in their hearts.

As they walked Main Street in Disneyland for their engagement session, he guided her through the throngs of people and she walked confidently passed stores filled with candy and souvenirs. They were content staying away from the most congested tourist areas and found nooks and crannies that’d make Mickey and Minnie proud ;)


I’m excited to photograph their wedding this October and I know it’s going to be nothing short of fabulous. Both Nicole and Aaron work for The Wedding Channel, so as we were discussing the details of their day, I became more stoked to document their wedding. We’re going to have a blast and I’m honored to be part of it!


This picture sums up their personalities quite nicely ;)

Nicole - Jasmine, thank you for such a wonderful engagement session -- we were sooo nervous! We were laughing (and appreciative) about you and your constant creativity. In mid-sentence, you'd be like, "Oooh, here! I like this. Right here!" We loved it -- but I don't think we finished any of the topics we started on... haha! Congrats again, new Auntie! xoxo, Nicole & Aaron  08.20.07 - 11:32am
