Esther + Ivan
Esther + Ivan // So Here's The Thing
Lcations: Houston & Pearland
When I saw two friends of mine becoming closer, it weirded me out a little bit. One was a college roommate who kept Earl Campbell sausage in our dorm fridge, the other a Catholic missionary from Hong Kong who would always say,"here's the thing."
I remember the first time I saw them hugging in that way that more-than-just-friends do, it was at Howl at the Moon during a Katy Perry song. I had maybe two drinks that night, but it was just enough to make me wonder, did I really see that? (Yes, James, you really did.)
Then fast forward through many sun burnt Galveston beach days, nights drinking left over beer from said beach days on a certain parking garage with a downtown Houston view, side trips to New Orleans and Austin, mix in a couple of Catholic conferences and a dog, and you'll get one of the coolest and most authentic couples I know.
That roommate was Ivan Jasper and that missionary was Pui Yu Esther Au. I was thrilled when they asked me to take their engagement portraits. And tomorrow, this great couple will become married in the eyes of the Church and their community of family and friends.
I can't wait for this weekend to start, it's been a long time coming (just kidding Ivan), but I'm not ready for Monday to come either. Join me in congratulating Esther and Ivan, and I cannot wait to eat a ton of Chinese food tonight and celebrate their wedding tomorrow.
