Derian & Shaiyan — Anniversary

by | Anniversary

Ay ay ay, you know when you’re REALLY excited about something and don’t know how to express it? That’s how I’ve been feeling about this shoot. Thankfully, just being a photographer means my soul is happy more often than not, but sometimes something just really gives you the warm and fuzzies…

I met Derian at the best coffee shop in all the land—my home-away-from-home/office, Kunjani. She works there and automatically memorized my order: point 1, goes to FGCU like me: point 2, and is funny as hell: point 3.

When I saw a picture of her and her girlfriend, Shaiyan, on Facebook, I was like damnnnn they are too pretty. It didn’t take me too long to put the idea of a photoshoot in her head. When I first asked, they hadn’t been together very long so she was a bit apprehensive, but with their 1-year anniversary approaching, they decided now that they wanted to do it.

And thank sweet baby Jesus for that.

We love you guys and think you’re pretty much one of the coolest couples in existence. Keep being adorably and wonderfully you. <3



Usually, I don’t have trouble choosing between black & white or color for a shot, but with those ^^^ it was a tough choice!
