We had a great time creating some amazing images with Amanda and Uwa. These love birds will be jumping the broom in San Jose, CA this fall. Can’t wait to spend time with them again. We started the day off at the Legion of Honor and walked around different parts close to the Golden gate bridge to capture some breathe-taking backdrops and we wrapped up the day at the Axiom hotel. It was really cool getting to know these two and Amanda was kind enough to share their love story below:
It was March 2012, when Amanda and Uwa got introduced through a mutual friend. They exchanged numbers as Amanda was interested in meeting more people since she was new to the Bay Area. One of the first questions during their first phone call was “where do you see yourself in five years?”. On their first date, “he asked how many kids do you want to have?”. Amanda started avoiding him (Uwa became the weird guy that asked serious questions) but he was persistent. Called Amanda every Friday for about 6 months. During those phone calls, they became good friends. Amanda admired his openness and kindness. The next date she agreed to go on with him, he said “you’re going to be my wife” then proceeded to ask “Will you be my girlfriend?” Amanda said yes and here they are five years later and his statement is about to come to pass.
Enjoy some of favorite shots from the session.
