OUR LOVE STORY
How We Met
Jonathan and I met about four years ago, when I was on the lookout for a very particular camera. My best friend and neighbor, at the time, knew who was selling just the camera I needed, and like any good friend he made the introduction. Now, if you’ve watched enough rom-coms… you can probably guess the camera owner was Jonathan. He’ll tell you he fell in love at first sight, but I will tell you I didn’t give him a moment’s notice.
For me, our story began one morning when Jonathan and I both found ourselves at our mutual friend’s house. We were chatting lenses, exposure, cameras, and to keep it light… we also discussed ideal love, how we envisioned our other halves, or… perfect love, if you will. It was in that moment, when I heard him speaking in his charming Italian way, that he won me over.
Later that day I had a photo shoot, and as I drove to the shoot I recorded an audio message intended for my close girlfriend. The message described my perfect morning. It included a detailed explanation of the Italian with the camera and how handsome he was, to just how much I wanted to go on a date with him. Just my luck, the audio message made its way straight to Jonathan and not my friend. I had no idea. I didn’t come to realize where the message was delivered, until I was about to start my session. Jonathan replied saying I really had no way out. He asked me out to the movies, to dinner, to lunch, and even tea. Needless to say, the rest is history and we now have a beautiful Italian, Argentinian, Mexican family.
