Please forgive me. Travels to the northwest, though refreshing and warm, have not been internet friendly until this evening. I’m sitting here in my little hotel room, that’s like a small apartment in the Pearl, in my future home of Portland, Oregon.
Ada and Ben - I think it’s safe to say that they are madly in love. They light each other up! It’s so rich to be near this connection they have, that I think I can also safely say that I’m a little in love with them myself. It doesn’t hurt that our first meeting turned into a veritable all-nighter filled with drinks, good cheer, and in depth descriptions of amazing food across the world. It also doesn’t hurt that they were kind enough to treat me to skewers of fried chicken skin, whole smelt and beef tongue. Ada said it best - “we three are culinary kindred spirits.” If there is anything in this world that I love as much as love, it’s definitely food.
We embarked upon our photographic journey at the Strand Bookstore in Union Square, took a break to stuff our faces with all sorts of amazing meats on skewers, and went to frolic in my hometown of Long Island City at night. So, it was pretty much the perfect day. I had so much fun with you both, and I can’t wait until your wedding!! It’s so soon!! Yay!
