Lacey and David met while attending a computer programming bootcamp inside American Tobacco. Bootcamp makes it sound kind of scary… like they had to do a lot of push-ups or else be forced to code an entire WordPress theme from scratch. But they made it through! And now are successful computer people typing numbers into the interwebs and making things happen (that’s how it works, right?). They’re getting married in Florida, where Lacey is originally from, but decided to return to the scene of the bootcamp to have their engagement pictures taken with us! They live in Durham where they hang out with their dogs and play a lot of Yoshi video games. David proposed by reprogramming the end of the world 1-1 map of Yoshi’s Island. I didn’t even know that you could reprogram a popular video game map to bend it to your will unless you were some kind of super computer hacker but apparently this is an actual thing. Lacey played the game, and at the end it spelled out “Will You Marry Me?” in coins. There she was presented with two tubes: the green ‘yes’ tube and the red ‘no’ tube. Lacey got confused at this last part and accidentally took the red tube where she fell into a pit of spikes. She must’ve eventually took the green tube because here they are in pictures being obviously engaged. Congratulations, Lacey and David!
This lady has been one of my favorites and I find myself slipping into a totally otherwise non-existent southern accent when I speak with her because hers is so adorable. Her wedding to Ken took place yesterday so I can finally post my favorites of her from a while ago. :) Their wedding will be coming up soon!
two posts in one day! go go go!
wendy is a raleigh model who is way great and way fun and way cute and we had a terrific time shooting. we went to shelley lake because i had this field in mind…this awesome, awesome field. i knew it was a long way to walk, but i was sure i knew exactly where it was. and after walking for about 15-20 minutes, we were all like, “okay, screw the field. we have no idea where it is.” ::sigh:: someday i will go back and find the field. but we made due without the field and got some stellar shots. thanks for putting up with us, wendy! :D
favvvvorrritttteee. poor wendy’s retinas suffered for this picture, but she pulled through, and i think it was worth it. :)
