“I bet you never thought I’d end up with someone like this,” MJ commented while giving Leon a playful shove. That’s how MJ is – she’s playful, energetic, and excited to try new things. It’s not that Leon is not any of those things, but he’s definitely more…east coast. More of a direct, no nonsense, cut and dry kind of guy. And that’s what makes them work so well as a couple – they push each other to do things outside of their comfort zones. Like how MJ makes Leon do things like pose in ridiculous positions. And how Leon makes MJ do things like be on time. She’s constantly trying to push the boundaries and go in different directions, and Leon helps her focus all that energy.
MJ and Leon are getting married next Spring in Santa Barbara and I can’t wait to share in their big weekend. I am truly happy that you two have found each other and am so honored to have captured just a small part of your relationship on camera. I hope I was able to do you two justice.
Favorite images from our afternoon in San Francisco. A big thank you to our good friend Eleanor for lending MJ this gorgeous dress!
