Meet Lance and Myla.  They won the Shutterfairy Photo engagement session giveaway.  It was such a joy to read one love story after another.  I especially enjoyed reading about couple’s dream engagement session.  Who wouldn’t?  That’s where we draw inspiration for our sessions.

How could I fully describe the love Lance and Myla have for each other?

To quote Myla’s email last year….


For more than three years, we lived our lives in different places, but that did not hinder our love for each other. It was never easy! We were determined to keep whatever we have. We are more than lovers!  We are best friends. We know each other’s secrets. We applaud each other’s strengths and helped each other’s weaknesses. We argue and cry a lot of times. But at the end of the day, we know that we can’t live without each other. We spend days and nights talking over the phone. For years, I sleep through his bedtime stories. Yes, we sleep with our headphones for years! We really try to see each other every month, giving us 3-4 days to be with each other.

I loved him so much.  When he popped the question I immediately said, “Yes.”

Brandy said, “Have you ever loved somebody so much it makes you cry?”—Yes! Whatever this song says is true. I could really attest to that. It’s hard to explain but there are really times that my tears fall when I think about Lance and how much I love him.

I can’t wait for the day to come that I’ll be with him for good. I can’t wait for the day to come that I don’t have to send someone to the airport and say goodbye.


To Lance and Myla, I can’t wait for that day to come too when both of you will start your journey to forever.  I somehow envy you!  But like what they say, there will always be a time for everything.  For your love story, the time of waiting is almost over.  I am uber excited for the both of you!  I am grateful that from being strangers (from that first email), we, somehow became friends.  I told you in passing one time; I am rooting for the both of you.  Thank  you for taking care of us when we did your shoot.  See you next month!
