Emily and Colby are a pretty cute couple with a seemingly standard story: both in their 20s, both working towards furthering their careers, an active pair caught in a tremendous love storm now ready to commit to marriage and building a life together.
But what’s not standard is the way Colby looks at Emily with complete love and patience and adoration. His eyes just light up when he looks at her and she beams beautifully right back. Also not so standard, is the way Emily relaxes in his arms, with a confidence and clarity that conveys a deep love, unknown to us outsiders. Emily and Colby are a pretty unique match for sure, and neither had to say a thing to communicate it.
On their first date, two years ago, the pair went hiking behind their houses and did some ‘extreme hammocking’ and took pictures. Basically, they’ve got this really groovy hammock that can be hung anywhere, so they went somewhere random and hung it. I had to see this for myself, so as soon as Emily brought it up, I was stoked for an extreme hammock appearance in their engagement photos. So as the orange sun slowly sank one Sunday, we met in Anaheim Hills where it all started to document the beginning of what is sure to be a tremendous love story.
