MICHELLE.AND.DON.::.THE.INTRODUCTION.


colorful. michelle and don are colorful.

when they told me their dilemma between choosing locations for the engagement shoot, i discovered this truism. don said it was a toss-up between boomers in irvine or an all-out extreme-shoot at their local motocross track. at that point, i knew good times were in order.

they opted for one of their favorite hangouts, boomers. so my amazing bride [carlie renee] and i met the excited couple for a radtastic hang-out-sesh/photo-shoot.

they met in band: michelle played the flute & don played drums. the two didn't actually feel an immediate attraction, rather their love grew organically with time. in fact, at our original meeting, michelle made me aware that don's over-confidence in his drumming skills may have kept her at distance. i guess he was the best drummer on the squad... and he knew it. but over time, michelle's heart was won over by the top-dawg drummer and now they are engaged to be wed at mariners church.

michelle and don, carlie & i are stoked for your wedding! here's a glimpse into all the good times had on the shoot...









i guess don is prone to his own 'happy gilmore' moments.


michelle & don... you two are awesome. check back tomorrow for the slideshow. rock on.
