SONIA + ROBBY // FROM CALIFORNIA TO CINCINNATI // OTR ENGAGEMENT SESSION // elopements & intimate wedding photographer // california // colorado // arizona // utah
Have you ever met an engaged couple that lived on opposite sides of the country??? Sonia lives in Los Angeles, California where she's lived her whole life. Robby recently moved to Cincinnati, OH from Virginia for work. They live miles and miles apart but you would NEVER know it - they're so in tune. And that could be because they naturally got their rhythm when they met at a Reggae show in Long Beach, California, where Robby was performing with his Reggae group. How. stinking. cool. Sonia watched him perform with her girlfriends, when she gave him the nickname "happy feet" because of how he would dance around stage. (side note - this was well before Disney's happy feet came around... not to make them sound old or anything, i'm just saying Sonia may be the real OG of the phrase.) These two are just the perfect mix of laid back California vibe mixed with some fun jazz. I didn't feel like I was in Ohio for a second during this shoot. We were taking it back to mod 60's vibe, reminiscing on these two's love story. It was so freaking fun. Also - I LOVE when my clients immediately feel like friends. We just hit it off - we had a blast getting our steps in around Over-The-Rhine's historic district where Robby dipped, spun & danced Sonia all around the colorful streets. We then spent 20 minutes talking about island tiki bars, speakeasys & the best spots in LA to check out whenever we get to make it out there ;) seriously, congrats sonia and robby. Now check out this happy couple and their happy feet!
