Monica + John | E-Session 01.10.2009

Monica and John's relationship is a perfect story of friendship and love. Monica had always considered John as one of her good friends that she had always been comfortable with. They went to the same Bible Study group at church. But to Monica's surprise - one day John expressed his interest toward her. In spite of her surprise, she agreed to start a relationship with him. From that point on, the rest is just history. They are getting married this coming March and I'm so thrilled when Monica asked me to be their wedding-day photographer :) I'm so honored!

Another thing I have to mention, Monica is a dear friend of mine who I met at church a few years back. We had been through lifes as singles together and now we have the chance of planning weddings together. I just can't be more excited for her and John :)

Monica, I cherish your friendship a lot and I'm glad that we got to have double dates together with John and Joe. I can't wait to take your wedding photos! Much love to you guys! :)

John is a missionary in progress. They will eventually leave the US to serve God's mission field in Asia.

And of course, I have to post this sweet picture of Monica and her lovely sister Karina that came along for the shoot. Thank you Karina for being my assistant on the spot :) You're such a kind younger sister to have :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009!

I'm wishing a happy new year 2009 to all of us. Hoping for a joyful and glorious new year ahead! I want to thank all of you my faithful blog-readers and blog-stalkers around the globe for visiting my blog. I'm humbled, truly - that you're stopping by and checking out my works :)

Personally I think it'll be an exciting year ahead for me - the fact that it will be my turn to walk down the aisle myself in a couple months from now. I can't wait to be married to Joe and now I know how you brides feel with planning and all the wedding preps ;) Wish me the best to persevere to the end of this wedding planning - I keep on telling myself that I will survive! ;)

Anyways, again - HAPPY NEW YEAR! God bless!

Love,
Lia
