“Love is friendship set on fire.” – Jeremy Taylor

 

[i carry your heart with me (i carry it in]

By E. E. Cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want

no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

This baby is your blessing,
I wish happiness in every way,
Good luck God bless I say

Kevin & Ying’s Engagement Shoot | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

 

Kevin & Ying’s engagement shoot was a blast! We all laughed A LOT! They are so sweet and loving. They had their friends come to the shoot, Ryan who is Kevin’s best man and Sharon is Kevin & Ying’s officiant and Ying’s hair & makeup artist. Ryan & Sharon have been a long time couple and I’m really excited for whenever their time comes to get married (No pressure but I have known Sharon for a few years now and I adore her)! It was as if the 5 of us were just hanging out taking pictures!

This was was my first time meeting Kevin & Ying so as we walked around the beautiful campus of UCLA on a Sunday morning I asked them all kinds of questions. They met in college at UC Berkeley. They were both going to school to be structural engineers. Ying told me all the other girls in the class were around Kevin having a good time and she needed to find out what Kevin was all about. They had talked about getting married and so one day as they were on a trip Kevin asked Ying to marry him on a train and she of course said yes! They are getting married this Saturday, 3/15/14 in Los Angeles, CA.

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did making them!
