I had so much fun hanging out with Devin and Jeremy on a gorgeous Sunday morning here in Seattle. We met at their apartment were I got to meet their cats and then we explored the neighborhood as we took photos. I learned a lot about them even before the shoot, so I will let their own words tell their story :) From Devin: We met at a Lifelong AIDS Alliance fundraiser and were friends beforehand for about 3 years. He was my go-to for being me, silly, care-free and down for whatever. We had many adventures together before we saw the light and realized the depth of our friendship and felt it natural and perfect to take it to the next level (my mom always said marry your best friend!).
We love just existing next to each other. Not always needing to do the same thing but often that is the case. We are both very goofy and thoughtful people which makes for spontaneous and seemingly random conversations between long and diligent silences. The beginnings of our friendship centered around walking and talking where we would wander around Capitol Hill and talk about anything and everything. Now it seems to center around food and stories about my day. We both love the outdoors and travel. I get stir crazy and feel most at peace in the wilderness or near the ocean. I want the quiet thrill of shared stories, places, experiences that we are able to have together.
He lets me be me and loves me for it. I can be ridiculous and he just smiles. He also is more sensitive than me which I appreciate and I admire his ability to know whether to give insight or just listen. He is my "Yes" man whenever I may doubt.
...and from Jeremy: I definitely echo what Devin said about us. It truly is a dream to be marrying my best friend. One that accepts me for who I am and loves to be carefree and goofy with no inhibitions.
I am so happy for the two of you!! Congratulations again on your engagement and thanks for being totally awesome during our shoot :)
