Meet Venessa and Paul. Many moons ago, I waited tables at a local steak house, it was there that I met Paul’s younger sister KK. Somehow it came up in conversation with her where we both lived. We soon realized we were neighbors, less than a block away from each other. Shortly after I met KK , Venessa also got a job at the same restaurant.
Before we knew it we were all spending time together, whether it be bbqing, late night card playing, watching American Idol together, or just going for a walk around the block.
They became a second family to me, the younger siblings I never had. They are the kind of people you can always count on to have your back. The kind that you can not see for years, but pick up right where you left off when you do see them. The kind that love my kids like they are their own. I love them dearly.
Sadly, they moved away a few years ago to New York City. Luckily Paul’s sister KK still lives right around the block from me so sometimes around the holidays we get a visit from them. When I caught wind of their engagement I told Venessa right away that I wanted to take engagement pictures for them.
And that is just what we did over the holiday break. Congrats you two, I can’t wait for the wedding!
