The first time I met Lauren and Steve it was not under the best of circumstances but ended in the the best way possible, let me explain.
I jumped into my car and started driving into Vancouver to meet Lauren and Steve at Starbucks to discuss me being their photographer. As I pull up to the address, I notice there isn't a Starbucks in sight. Frantically I pull up Lauren's email with the location of the Starbucks. My stomach instantly dropped when I read the the word "New West". This was entirely my fault.
After calling Lauren and apologizing I opened up google maps on my phone and punched in the correct address and sped off to the meeting. After getting lost and taking a detour across the wrong bridge due to a parade I found the Starbucks...an hour after the original meeting time.
At this point I know I've blown this meeting and just wanted to buy Lauren and Steve a coffee or something to say sorry. Starbucks was packed! Wading through the crowd I finally spotted Lauren and Steve sitting together in a corner around a small table. Smiling from ear to ear they welcomed me warmly and told me to not worry about being late, that it wasn't a big deal and that they didn't mind. And after chatting for awhile they booked me as their photographer.
I was blown away by the kindness and relaxed nature of both Lauren and Steve and this showed the day of our meeting as well as on their wedding day. These two are fantastic and were such a pleasure to work with.
Congratulations Lauren and Steve and thank you so much for including me in your day. It was very special and I really enjoyed being your photographer!
